The Dane is not showing any signs of committing his future at White Hart Lane and has described his situation as ‘unnatural’
2019 hasn’t been the best year for Tottenham so far in the Premier League. The Lillywhites are yet to taste victory against a top 6 side this year. With 1 point from their last 4 matches, it seems Tottenham could miss out on Champions League by the end of the season. At the start of the year it seemed they might challenge for the title, but the reality is they are struggling at the moment. The only joy Tottenham fans have now is the unveiling of their much anticipated stadium. With Pochettino linked with a move to Old Trafford and Eriksen rumored to join Real Madrid, the Dane has explained his contract situation.
Christian Eriksen has spoken out about his Tottenham Hotspur contract situation and described it as ‘unnatural’. The Denmark international has just over 12 months left on his current deal, so this summer could potentially be Spurs’ last chance to command a fee for the midfielder. Eriksen has been closely linked to a transfer to Real Madrid in recent months. And his future may be dependent on whether Zinedine Zidane is interested in making the signing after returning to the Spanish capital, if not the 27-year-old may be more inclined to seal a new deal. Spurs’ star is unconcerned about the rumours himself however. The playmaker told, ”
The Premier League clubs are starting very early to get players to sign new contracts. Therefore, my situation is unnatural. Two years is still a long time when you think of a football career, but in England it is normal to write a five-six-year agreement. That’s why my situation is different.”
Eriksen further said, “The speculation about my future does not affect me. I don’t care about that completely. It’s newspaper news. It has been running ever since, I was 14 years old and was in trial at Chelsea. There are newspapers that write it.” It’s not the first time that Eriksen has given a blunt response when questioned about his future. Christian Eriksen always offers a cryptic answer in response to the latest questions surrounding his contract situation. Earlier in the international break he did not appear to react kindly to journalists asking about potential switches to Juventus and Los Blancos. He said, “I don’t want to talk about it. You write everything anyway, so there is no need to talk about it. I really just want to focus on the national team, when I am here.”
Considering the amount of money Tottenham spent on their new stadium and on extending the contracts of Kane and Alli, it seems they may sell Eriksen in summer due to lack of funds available at present. Tottenham are aware of the fans frustration over not signing a player and may sell some players in summer to buy few .
