Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy knows a thing or two about business, but he hasn’t been able to complete the negotiation to extend Christian Eriksen’s contract with the Spurs. However, the 27-year-old hasn’t accepted any of Tottenham’s offers to date.
Apparently, the main reason is the fact that Eriksen is waiting for one thing, and one thing only. He wants Real Madrid to knock on his door and determine whether they want to sign him or not towards the 2020-21 season.
The Denmark international was expected to extend his current deal with the Spurs during the summer, but talks between both parties didn’t progress. It is believed that Los Merengues are looking to pursue a move for Eriksen for the summer, but Juventus also want to sign him under the Bosman rule next year, just like they did with Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey this summer.
Eriksen will be eligible to sign with a new team in a bit more than three months. But considering how things have happened of late, it wouldn’t be surprising if the Dane ends up donning Madrid’s white towards the 2020-21 campaign.
This season, Eriksen has one goal in five Premier League starts with the Spurs. He’s also won 90 caps with the Denmark national team, scoring 29 times.
