A report emanating from Spain today suggests that Daniel Levy has warned Barcelona that it would take a monumental €225 million (£202.6 million) if they want to prise Christian Eriksen away from Spurs, according to Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo.
The Dane has been in sizzling form for club and country this season, and really hammered home his quality during Denmark's 5-1 win over the Republic of Ireland in their World Cup Play-off match last night, scoring a magnificent hat-trick for his country.
The 25-year-old joined Tottenham from Ajax in the summer of 2013, for a fee believed to be in the region of £12.5 million, and has since gone on to be nothing other than an undisputed success, scoring 46 goals and chipping in with 60 assists in 194 appearances for his club.
“If PSG paid 222 million euros for Neymar , Christian Eriksen costs 225 million euros.”
It could be argued that the Denmark international is indispensable to Spurs, so allowing him to leave should not even be a consideration, irrelevant of the amount of money that is offered for him.
And luckily for Tottenham, he seems more than happy playing under Mauricio Pochettino at this moment in time.
