Tottenham Hotspur face a battle to keep star midfielder Christian Eriksen at the club.
Spurs are desperate for Eriksen to sign a new deal but Real Madrid and Barcelona could offer him higher wages, according to The Daily Mail.
The Denmark international has managed six goals and eight assists this season and his creative spark is vital to Tottenham’s success.
But with Barcelona and Real Madrid interested, Tottenham know that it will be a struggle to keep Eriksen.
The 26-year-old is now entering a crucial time in his career and he will want to be competing for trophies.
Unfortunately, he has not managed to pick up any silverware since his 2013 switch from Ajax to Tottenham.
This will be something he wants to change this season and winning a trophy could be a vital factor in his decision about his future.
Tottenham are well positioned to win some silverware this season in more than one competition.
The Carabao Cup might be their best shot at a trophy as they carry a 1-0 lead into the semi-final second leg against Chelsea.
Progression to the final would see them meet Manchester City (unless Burton can overturn a nine-goal deficit) so they are two matches away from Mauricio Pochettino and Eriksen’s first trophy at Spurs.
Winning any of the competitions Tottenham are in could convince Eriksen that his project in North London is just getting started.
