Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy, is willing to take a cut-price deal for Christian Eriksen in January.
The future of the Danish midfielder has been hanging over the club for some time now. Eriksen will see his contract expire this summer, leaving him free to move away from the club for nothing.
But with January just around the corner, Spurs have had a change of tactics when it comes to Eriksen.
According to the Daily Star, Daniel Levy is now willing to accept just £25m for Eriksen. Levy is hoping to move the midfielder on and at least generate some income from one of his star players.
Levy’s move comes despite Jose Mourinho insisting he wants Eriksen to sign a new deal. The new Spurs manager was hopeful the 27-year-old might follow the lead of Toby Alderweireld in signing new terms.
An end to the saga
On the same weekend one of films’ biggest sagas comes to an end, so does it look like being the end for one of football’s.
Daniely Levy seems to be taking matters into his own hands with Christian Eriksen. There’s still no sign of a new contract being signed and so Levy is moving to protect the club.
At £25m, he might well just finally find a suitor for the Danish star.
This has been long-running and almost painful to sit back and observe at times. It’s clear, at the moment, that Eriksen has no intention of staying on at Spurs.
If he did, he’d have already put pen to paper on a new deal. With that, his performance levels have also dropped.
Jose Mourinho needs to know who is fully invested in his plans. If Eriksen isn’t, then selling him off in January will be best for everyone involved.
