Christian Eriksen has claimed it would be difficult for any player to turn down a move to Barcelona.

The Tottenham playmaker enjoyed a superb second half of the season, finishing the campaign in scintillating form.

Inevitably, rumours of potential interest from Barcelona have emerged and the Dane has been speaking about those reports.

“There are always a lot of rumours,” Eriksen told Ekstra Bladet (quotes relayed by FourFourTwo).

“Barcelona are a fantastic club and there are not a lot of players who would say no to them.

“But there is a difference between just monitoring a player and concrete interest. I do not really have an opinion on it while there is no concrete interest.

“I see myself at the highest level in the future, that is my dream. That might be in two years or in three years and it could be at Tottenham or elsewhere.

“I still have a contract with Tottenham for a few more years.”

While it wouldn’t be a surprise to see a club like Barcelona move for Eriksen, there’s very little chance Spurs would let him leave this summer.

In fact, the only first team player who could leave in the coming weeks is Kyle Walker. Tottenham will do everything they can to hold on to the rest of their stars.



  1. Your headline is misleading. He didn’t say he couldn’t turn Barcelona down, he said not many players could turn them down.

    The bit most media folk didn’t focus on, because it doesn’t suit their agenda, was where he said he hoped to be playing at an elite level Club in two​or three years time and that could be Spurs if they continue to progress.

    So, the headline could just as easily be that he pledges his future to Spurs as long as they improve, despite the lure of Barcelona. And considering they have a brilliant young squad and manager who are improving, a great youth set-up that is producing, and the infrastructure for success, including a superb new stadium that should be open for the season after next, there is no reason why Spurs shouldn’t continue progressing.
