Paul Robinson spoke to Sky Sports and claimed that it might just be in Tottenham’s best interest to cash in on Christian Eriksen before the end of this month, rather than risk losing him for free next year.
The Spurs midfielder is out of contract in the summer of 2020, and has been heavily linked with a departure and the Dane is said to prefer a move to either Real Madrid, Barcelona or Juventus.
Christian Eriksen has been offered a new contract by Tottenham worth £200,000-a-week, per the Daily Mail, but as things stand, his future is still shrouded in mystery.
And Glenn Robinson, who won the League Cup with the north London club back in 2008, told Sky Sports how the 27-year-old’s unwillingness to commit to a new contract means that the Champions League runners-up should cut their losses on the midfielder:
“I’d be surprised if they do keep hold of him due to the fact that he still hasn’t signed his contract that he has been offered. He’s made noises that he is ready for a new challenge.
“The fact that he hasn’t signed a new contract going into his final year – I think it does have an effect on the team. The chairman has obviously put a price tag on his head [and] they have to get value for money. If he’s not going to sign a contract then they have to cash in.”
Daniel Levy will surely decide to sell the playmaker, if they receive a substantial offer before the end of the month.
