Opinion: With Any Luck January Will Herald Farewell To Uncharacteristic Levy Mistake
By Joe Fish -

Tottenham Hotspur will make a renewed effort to sell Christian Eriksen in the January transfer window, according to the Evening Standard.

The Dane has reportedly reaffirmed his desire to leave Spurs for a new challenge to Jose Mourinho who had hoped he might change his mind and sign an extension to the contract which expires at the end of the season.

Chairman Daniel Levy is desperate not to lose Eriksen, whom he once valued at around £130m according to The Guardian, on a free transfer so Standard Sport understands he would accept offers of less than £40m.

Real Madrid has long been Eriksen’s touted destination while Standard Sport adds that Atletico Madrid and Juventus are also in the running.

Only that competition for Eriksen’s signature could prompt a January cash offer when the 27-year-old could be picked up for nothing in the summer.

I would suspect Eriksen would be hesitant to commit to any club in January that was not Real, in case Los Blancos come calling once he is a free agent.

So, realistically, only Real can now save us from this costly mistake.

    Can imagine in training Kane&Dele working on the old one twos. (near the bloody goal) 🎼 we’ve got harryyyy harry and deleeeee I just don’t think you understand. COYS

    Best we can hope for is a swap deal with a player in a similarly untenable position. Bale…?

    I hear CE stopped trying coz Jan and his clan did. Who knows what happened there. Erikson must see his whole time at Tottenham as a complete waste of time. Nothing gained. I can’t forgive any player for downing tools whilst working for me (a fan) ef him!

    • Tappaspur says:

      Could say that about a few others but they’ll have a chance to make up for it. CE won’t so “ef him

        I have to put that Bayern Munich mauling behind me. I really wish I wasn’t at the game. Poch looking like a little lamb lost in a big field.

      Eriksen had his chances he has to look at himself. Personally i would want to win at every club i sign or i would feel failure. A champions league final. League cup final. Two title races he went missing against the likes of spam and newcastle.. Its no coincidence he NEVER showed up when we really needed him.. Not everyone are born winners. Only the best have the minerals upstairs… Verts i thought always puts in the effort. Hes still in prime.. And tobys still very good, but not as good as two years back. Sanchez been mopping up for him recently

    40 mil for someone that is free in the summer , even by Levy standards that is funny for all the wrong reasons.

    As well as being a serial snowflake, the great pain can’t be very clever… He wanted to go for his new challenge, when no big club wanted him he suddenly claims there is ‘nothing bad’ about staying at spurs… Not for him maybe.. Top joker our chris

    Real wont buy CE will ZZ’s job is on the line. I would say CE is going for free – at this point I wouldn’t let him 100yrds of the first team or training facility. He wants to go, put him gardening leave.
