It was only a matter of time before Christian Eriksen was linked with a move away from White Hart Lane despite the midfielder being the only player to come out and verbally commit his future to Tottenham. The Dane has emerged as the only new signing to come away from the campaign with any merit and he is now a certainty to be named as the supporters’ player of the season.
“For me the feeling I have at the club isn’t dependent on being in the Champions League, I’m happy here and am looking forward to the future,” Eriksen said at the start of this month.
Several Man of the Match performances have followed and while these rumours are predictable, many of them are ridiculous. There are claims that Spurs have ‘slapped’ an 18 million Euro price tag on Eriksen’s head but Juventus are among several teams willing to pay that figure.
Of course they are: Hopefully this will all go away but try doubling that price and you might start getting close to the player’s true value.
