Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen talks to Ekstra Bladet
Danish paper Ekstra Bladet have published exclusive quotes from Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen about his future in north London.
Ekstra Bladet spoke to Eriksen as he joined up with the national team on Tuesday.
Denmark have upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Ireland and Georgia.
In a major blow for Tottenham after losing the Champions League final to Liverpool, Eriksen has indicated he wants to leave the club.
Eriksen: ‘I would like to try something new’
Eriksen’s contract with Spurs expires at the end of next season, and for months there have been rumours that the midfielder could leave north London.
Now the Dane has fanned the flames confirming he wants a new challenge:
I feel that I am a place in my career where I might want to try something new.
I have the wildest and deepest respect for everything that has happened at Tottenham – I will not be negative. But I have also said that I would like to try something new.
I hope there will be a resolution during the summer. That’s the plan.
In football you do not know when a resolution will happen. It can happen anytime. Everyone wants the best to happen as soon as possible, but in football takes things time.
It depends on Daniel Levy. And another club has to come (in with a transfer). Or I’ll have to sit down at the table and negotiate a new contract. You can’t set a date yourself.
There are not many points that Tottenham cannot meet. If I have to go, then hopefully it will be a step up.
Eriksen & Real Madrid
Eriksen then specifically discussed the rumours linking him with a possible move to Real Madrid:
It’s a step up. But it requires Real Madrid to call Tottenham and say they want Christian. And they have not done so yet, as far as I know.
It is hard. It depends on the possibilities. If nothing pops up that is more exciting, why not stay in Tottenham? If I then sign a new contract it will depend on the terms.
