Tottenham Hotspur star Christian Eriksen has said that he wants to move on from the club and try something new in his career. There were several reports linking Eriksen to a move to Real Madrid. The Dane said that while Real would be a step up, they haven’t contacted Spurs regarding a transfer for him.
The 27-year old said, “I feel that I am at a stage of my career where I would like to try something new. I have the deepest respect for everything that is happening at Tottenham and it would not be something negative to stay. But I have also said that I would like to try something new.
I hope that something will be decided this summer. That is the plan. In football you never know when there could be a decision like that. It could be at any point. The best thing is always for it to happen quickly but in football things take time. Real Madrid is a step up but then it would take Real Madrid picking up the phone and making contact with Tottenham and say that they want Christian. And that they haven’t done as far as I know. It all depends on Daniel Levy and there has to be another club too. Or I will sit down myself at the table and negotiate a new contract. You can’t set a date yourself. There aren’t many boxes that Tottenham don’t tick so if I have to move away, it would have to be a step up.”
Eriksen has been an integral part of Spurs since joining the club from Ajax on a transfer fee of £11 million in 2013. He has since made 277 appearances for the North London outfit, scoring 66 goals and providing 86 assists. This season, Eriksen has scored 10 goals and has provided 17 assists in 51 appearances across all competitions.
