The 27-years-old star has one year left on his current deal and has said that he is open to a new challenge, with Barcelona, Juventus, and Real Madrid all reportedly interested in his services. However, he added that it must be a step up and if the right offer doesn’t come in, he is happy to extend his stay at Tottenham Spurs. The Mail Online reports that the Champions League finalists are very keen on keeping hold of the influential Dane and have offered him a new deal worth £200,000 per week. This is a substantial increase from his current contract that sees him pocked £80,000 per week.
However, it has been made clear that Eriksen is making his decision based on whether an exciting opportunity arises, but not on wages. Eriksen told Danish publication Ekstra Bladet in June that ‘I feel that I am a place in my career where I might want to try something new.’ He also said that he has the deepest and wildest respect for everything that has happened in Tottenham; however, he would like to try something new and hoped that he can decide this summer.
He also confirmed that everything depends on Daniel Levy, the Chairman of Spurs, and there has to be another club, too. Or he will sit down at the table and negotiate a new contract. There aren’t many boxes that Tottenham don’t tick so if he has to move away it would have to be a step up.
If Eriksen doesn’t sign the huge new deal with Tottenham Spurs, Daniel Levy may look to move him on this summer rather than on a free next year.
