‘All footballers would like to win trophies’: Christian Eriksen discusses Tottenham future

Christian Eriksen has insisted he is “very happy” at Tottenham amid suggestions he is good enough to play for Real Madrid or Barcelona.

The Dane has hit a new level of performance over the last two seasons for Spurs – he has scored 10 goals and provided 11 assists in all competitions this term.

Denmark coach Age Hareide recently suggested Eriksen would be a star at Real Madrid or Barcelona.

In fact, Barcelona were heavily linked with a move for the 26-year-old last summer when it appeared they had missed out on Philippe Coutinho.

Coutinho eventually joined Barcelona in January, which could mean the La Liga giants are no longer interested in Eriksen.

Still, his current form means Europe’s biggest clubs are likely to continue monitoring his progress.

But Eriksen insists he is happy at Tottenham.

“To be honest, I do not think about [interest from elsewhere],” he told Danish outlet BT (via Goal).

“You play football in the present, but you also have dreams. Dreams are one thing, but they are only realistic when [an offer] is on the table.

“Right now, most people are very happy at Tottenham and I am also.

“All footballers would like to win the Premier League or the Champions League or FA Cup. I think most people just want to win some trophies.

“You can try to ask Kasper [Schmeichel] how he felt after winning the Premier League. I think it was a good feeling.”

Eriken was in fine form as Spurs eased past Swansea in last weekend’s FA Cup quarter-final at the Libery Stadium.

Perhaps winning a trophy this season will convince Eriksen to spend the majority of his career at Tottenham.

Spurs face Manchster United in the semi-finals of the FA Cup at Wembley next month.
