The Tottenham Hotspur star has been heavily linked with an exit this summer.
Tottenham ace Christian Eriksen has been heavily linked with an exit from north London this summer, and when speaking to the Danish media last night, he insisted that he will not be 'dropping anymore bombs', after suggesting that he was ready for a new challenge last week.
The 27-year-old's current deal with Spurs is set to expire in the summer of 2020, so if Spurs fail to tie him down to a new contract over the course of the next month or so, it would be no surprise to see him leave the club.
Real Madrid are leading the chase for Eriksen, and Tottenham expect to recoup somewhere in the region of £130 million for the Denmark international, according to the Sun.
Daniel Levy is well-known for his hard-nosed negotiating, but £130 million for a player entering the final year of his contract really would be incredible business.
Eriksen told reporters last week how he is keen to begin a new challenge, as quoted by Danish media outlet EB:
"I have the wildest and deepest respect for everything that has happened in Tottenham, nor will it be negative. But I have also said that I would like to try something new. I hope there will be a clarification during the summer. That's the plan."
When speaking last night, however, the Tottenham ace insisted that he will not be giving anything else away, as quoted by Danish media outlet EB:
"The focus is on vacation, and I’ve said what needed to be said. No more bombs this time around"
And now it will be a waiting game for Tottenham. Will Eriksen sign a new deal or won't he? Much will depend on whether any of Europe's elite clubs actually make an offer for him this summer, because if they do, it would be very unlike Spurs to allow one of their best players to go into the final year of their contract, rather than move them on.
