Spurs ‘in the dark’ over Eriksen as relationships breakdown

Tottenham Hotspur remain ‘in the dark’ regarding the future of Christian Eriksen as speculation continues to surround the midfielder’s future at the club.

Eriksen has entered the final year of his contract in North London and has shown no indication he is prepared to extend his deal at the club, with the Danish international reportedly hoping for a move to either Real Madrid or Barcelona.

The transfer window for European clubs remains open until September 2, though according to the Guardian, Spurs remain ‘in the dark’ regarding Eriksen’s plans following a breakdown in the relationship between chairman Daniel Levy and the player’s representative Martin Schoots.

Eriksen’s availability on a free transfer next summer may see Europe’s top clubs delay making an offer for him in the remainder of this window, with Spurs facing the prospect of losing one of their key players for nothing in 2020.

The 27-year-old has been named as a substitute in two of Tottenham’s opening three Premier League fixtures, and manager Mauricio Pochettino refused to offer assurances on the midfielder’s future following the 1-0 home defeat to Newcastle United on Sunday.

Pochettino has admitted that the uncertainty surrounding Eriksen had contributed to an unsettling start to the new season, with the Spurs boss hoping a resolution can be found before the close of the European transfer window next week.
