Christian Eriksen is currently stalling on the contract extension offered to him by Tottenham Hotspur and this has left fans a bit twitchy over his immediate future.
The 26-year-old has just one more season left in his present deal and his hesitance to sign the new offer could force the Spurs to start listening to transfer offers. Real Madrid and Barcelona are known to be long-time admirers with interests for Eriksen expected to rise once clubs come to know of his situation at North London.
Speaking to the press regarding the situation, Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino was quoted, “I’m not a person that suffers too much in this type of situation because football is dynamic. Football is about interests that as managers or head coaches we sometimes cannot manage. It depends on many things in this business – different parties that have interests.”
“Of course Christian Eriksen is such an important player for Tottenham and of course as a person or as a professional coach or manager, you would like to have this type of player with you. But in the end, it’s a negotiation and there’s different parties that have different interests.”
“It will be fantastic if Christian Eriksen is going to be committed with the club for a long-term, and if not it’s his right to do what he wants to do. He is happy here, he is showing his commitment. Then what is going to happen in between him and the club is not only in our hands.”
