Tottenham are considering letting Christian Eriksen run down his contract, according to the Daily Mail.

Eriksen’s current deal expires at the end of next season and a report earlier this week claimed Real Madrid have made initial steps to lure the playmaker to the Bernabeu.

It is believed Eriksen currently earns £70,000 a week at Spurs, and the Dane wants those wages doubled to at least £140,000 a week.

The Mail claims Tottenham will consider letting Eriksen enter the final year of his contract, a situation that could see the 26-year-old leave for nothing at the end of the 2019/20 season.

Presumably, the club’s intention is to persuade Eriksen to sign a new deal by refusing to sell him with a year remaining on his contract.

Harry Kane is thought to be Spurs’ top earner on around £200,000 a week, so it’s understandable that Eriksen – one of the team’s best performers in recent years – might feel undervalued on his current salary.

Tottenham are certainly taking a risk if the report has any truth to it – hopefully the end result is a positive one for the club.



  1. Personally I would give Erikson any contract he wants to keep him at spurs he’s a special player not many like him yeah Kane’s are top man but without Erikson sat behind him creating all the service where’s most of the chances going to come from! Give him what he wants!
