Christian Eriksen’s future remains up in the air as he stayed at Tottenham Hotspur beyond the end of the summer window.
Denmark assistant coach Jon Dahl Tomasson has told BT that Christian Eriksen would be better off staying at Tottenham as speculation persists regarding the midfielder’s future.
Eriksen’s future has been a major talking point throughout the summer after he suggested, in comments reported The Sun, that he would be interested in pursuing a fresh challenge shortly after helping Spurs to last season’s Champions League final.
The Sun reports that he is out of contract at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium next summer, and Manchester United are already planning to make a January move for the 27-year-old with the European window closing this week and Eriksen staying put.
But with the playmaker now linking up with his national team, Tomasson has urged Eriksen to consider staying with Tottenham as he feels that it is the perfect place for him at this stage of his career.
“It’s been written whether or not Christian should change the club. And he shouldn’t,” he told BT. “He is such a balanced and skilled player, so they will always benefit from him. He must play at Tottenham.
“I’m certainly not nervous because you have to assume that Tottenham will play with their best players. I know the coach and Christian have a good relationship. Tottenham is an excellent club for Christian and a huge club in England.”
It will be beneficial for Spurs to have some respite from talk surrounding Eriksen now that the window has closed. It is only temporary respite as the rumours have already started up again, but Mauricio Pochettino may be grateful that the window has closed.
In an ideal world for Tottenham, Eriksen would bring an end to talk about his future by extending his contract in the very near future. But it looks as though there could be a few more twists ahead before the situation is resolved one way or another.
