Jose Mourinho is aware of Christian Eriksen’s Tottenham future, the Portuguese boss revealed.
Rumours have been circulating for months about the Dane possibly quitting North London in January.
He seems to have already told the Spurs hierarchy that he wishes to leave and does not want to sign a contract extension beyond this season. Real Madrid are thought to be his top destination with Manchester United also posed as likely suitors.
“About his future, I know his future. I think I know his future because his communication with me is completely open and honest and we trust each other,” Mourinho said after his team beat Brighton 2-1.
“The only thing I can tell you is that I know his future, but I am not the one to speak about his future, it has to be him to speak about his future when he makes the decision to speak about it, not me.
“My feeling is that he wants to help us, which is why when I am in trouble and need a player with his qualities, I play him. Today he was important. Harry had a yellow card, we needed freshness, we needed vision and fast passing, and he was there for us.”
