Tottenham Hotspur could convince Christian Eriksen to sign a new contract if a clause that allows him to leave for Barcelona or Real Madrid is included, according to BBC Sport.
Eriksen has just one year remaining on his current Spurs deal and has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent weeks.
It seems the Dane’s future has been put on hold until the end of the season, which is understandable with one of the biggest games in the club’s history – next month’s Champions League final – just around the corner.
There are doubts over whether Eriksen is willing to stay at Tottenham, especially if the club doesn’t increase his relatively low salary to on par with top earners such as Harry Kane.
And BBC Sport claims there is only one way Spurs will be able to convince the 27-year-old to put pen to paper: by including a clause that will allow him to join Madrid or Barcelona if the La Liga giants come knocking.
The issue is that Madrid have apparently already knocked on Tottenham’s door, so there isn’t much point in Eriksen signing a new contract if there is an opportunity for him to move to the Bernabeu this summer.
