Christian Eriksen had a wonderful 2018/2019 season with Spurs. In 35 appearances he found the net 8 times and provided 12 assisted. A goal participation rate of 29% saw him play a key role in the Spurs attack and his additional contributions helped the side to come third and make it to the Champion’s League final.
Those statistics would undoubtedly have been even more impressive too, had Harry Kane and Son not missed significant parts of the season.
At 27 years old and with just one year left on his contract, the Dane is drawing some serious attention from clubs around the world. With an estimated price tag of €100,000,000 though, there’s a restriction on which clubs could afford him.
Interest from Madrid and Manchester United?
Eriksen has been linked most closely with Real Madrid. Los Blancos are set to spend big this summer, with Florentino Perez gifting Zidane an astronomical transfer budget to bring back the success that eluded Real Madrid last season.
The club is set to execute a significant overhaul this window and it has already been busy signing new attackers. Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic have been creating some serious buzz but Real Madrid fans are hungry for even more star power.
At the end of the season, there was a lot of speculation that Real Madrid might pursue Eriksen’s signature. With recent signings, though, this club interest has cooled down somewhat. There are rumors that Real Madrid are still pursuing Mbappé too!
Pogba is another target for Los Blancos, so the future is still very uncertain and the transfer window is sure to be filled with excitement and shocks.
There are also rumors that Solskjaer would like to build his team around Eriksen and conduct a rebuild. This seems unlikely, though, given that the club is apparently ready to break its record signing to secure the services of Ndombele.
Everything He Could Need at Tottenham
Spurs will want to do everything that they can to hold onto Eriksen and there have been some positive signs that may be the case. Despite saying that “it might be time for a new challenge”, the attacker has now suggested that he is willing to listen to what Spurs can offer him in a new contract.
He has apparently admitted that Tottenham can offer him everything that he needs – silverware, Champion’s League football, and a strong team around him. But will Levy be willing to finance the wages that will be needed to have Eriksen stick around?
A Strong Sign of Intent
If Tottenham are able to hold onto Eriksen, it’s a very strong sign of intent. It’s a powerful sign that the club is moving forward in the right direction and retaining the players who have been pushing for success for seasons now.
The club will, of course, want to keep key players like Son and Kane to really cement a strong attacking force that can gel together even further.
