The Tottenham Hotspur ace is out of contract next summer.
Paul Robinson spoke to Sky Sports today, and suggested that it might just be in Tottenham’s best interest to sell Christian Eriksen before the end of this month, rather than risk losing him for nothing next year.
The Spurs star is out of contract in the summer of 2020, and has been heavily linked with an exit. He is said to prefer a switch to either Real Madrid, Barcelona or Juventus (ESPN).
Eriksen has reportedly been offered a new deal by Tottenham worth £200,000 per week, according to the Daily Mail, but as things stand, his future is still shrouded in mystery.
And Robinson, who won the League Cup with Spurs in 2008, told Sky Sports how the 27-year-old’s refusal to commit to a new deal means that the north London outfit should cut their losses on the midfielder:
“I’d be surprised if they do keep hold of him due to the fact that he still hasn’t signed his contract that he has been offered. He’s made noises that he is ready for a new challenge. The fact that he hasn’t signed a new contract going into his final year – I think it does have an effect on the team. The chairman has obviously put a price tag on his head [and] they have to get value for money. If he’s not going to sign a contract then they have to cash in.”
On his day, Eriksen is one of the finest midfield play-makers in the game, but losing him for nothing in 10 months time really would be a bitter pill to swallow for Tottenham.
And Daniel Levy will surely decide to sell the Denmark international, if they receive a substantial offer for his services before the end of the month.
