Should Eriksen stay at Spurs ?

16th August 2019, 15:10

As some of Europe's mega clubs line up to take him on board should Christian Eriksen move away from Spurs or stay on project?

Tottenham have a major problem regarding their midfield maestro in the fact that he is heading into the final year of his contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Statdium and clearly has no intention of signing a new deal.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy and the powers that be at the club do not want to lose one of their star men for nothing next summer and that is understandable.

They are said to have offered him a new contract worth £200,000 a week in an effort to get him to stay, but, with no resolution in sight, time is pressing.

The likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich all have the financial muscle to make a move for the Great Dane and with the transfer window not closing in those countries until September 2, they still have time to put a package together.

The question Eriksen must ask himself is: ‘is the grass greener on the other side of the fence?’ and is now the right time to be leaving Spurs.

Boss Mauricio Pochettino’s men have yet to win any silverware under his leadership but it looks to be getting ever closer and they are expected to be the third club, along with both champions Manchester City and Champions League holders Liverpool, who will battle it out for the title this season.

The last thing Eriksen wants to do is leave on the eve of success for the club.

Furthermore, is moving on a guarantee he will pick up silverware elsewhere?

At PSG he would undoubtedly win Ligue 1 and possibly the French Cup as well, but in Europe they are not a powerhouse and are not the most glamorous of sides. Just ask Neymar, who seems to have found life in Paris unfulfilling.

The same goes for Bayern Munich, although winning the Bundesliga title will be harder than PSG picking up the French title, they are more likely to challenge for the Champions League but are not the most flamboyant of sides.

Real Madrid are in a rut and there is no guarantee that they are going to get any better under Zindene Zidane so that leaves Barcelona as the one real option.

A top side who can challenge for all the main trophies and provide the glamour as well.

Spurs showed last season, with their run to the Champions League final, that they are almost the finished article. Will Eriksen hold on to see if they can fulfil their undoubted potential and become that side or will he jump ship first?
