Daniel Levy turned down chance to sign ex-Spurs ace last summer – report

Tottenham are unlikely to re-sign Christian Eriksen this month, but they could have struck a deal for him last summer, according to the Athletic.

Eriksen is set to leave Inter in the current transfer window after an underwhelming year in Italy since leaving Spurs last January, and the Londoners are one of the clubs he is being linked with.

However, the Athletic believes the chance of a return before the end of the month is unlikely, though sources tell them there is a ‘small possibility’ of it happening.

They seem to think Eriksen is more likely to re-unite with former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, who is now in charge at Paris Saint-Germain – they certainly have a better chance of matching the Dane’s wage demands.

The most interesting part of the Athletic’s report concerns the fact that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy apparently turned down the chance to re-sign Eriksen last summer.

It’s crazy to think Inter deemed the 28-year-old a failure after just six months at the San Siro, but it seems that is indeed the case.

Levy probably ignored the chance to strike a deal because of Eriksen’s salary, which is thought to have increased massively at Inter.

Still, it would be interesting to see him back at Tottenham, who could do with some additional goals from midfield at the moment.

  1. Surely we have enough pride to not resign a player who left us in the way he did.
    Notwithstanding his loss of form the last 9/12 months he was with us, he had been up to then an outstanding player, loved by all at the Lane.Had he stayed he would have been a Legend( probably already was prior to his departure).
    One got the impression that Levy could have offered him the world and he still wouldn’t have signed a new contract- “ he had to get away from us as though we were Corona Virus infected”.
    Granted he was hoping for Barca or Real Madrid to come in for him; that didn’t materialise and his move to a club no better at present than us Inter Milan hasn’t worked out; well that is tough; he has made his bed now he can lie in it.
