Christian Eriksen gives Tottenham quit notice ahead of summer exit

Christian Eriksen has revealed he is ready to quit Tottenham for another club 'to try something new’ in the ongoing summer transfer window.

According to Daily Mail report, the playmaker has resurrected his plans to dump the north London dwellers after shelving talks on his future to focus on Spurs' final game of the campaign, which ended with Spurs defeat by Reds in last Saturday's Champions League final.

Speaking ahead of Denmark's Euro 2020 qualifier against Ireland on Friday, June 6 Eriksen, who will be entering the final leg of his contract insists the time is right to move on after six years at Tottenham.

“I feel that I am at a place in my career where I might want to try something new.

“I have the wildest and deepest respect for everything that has happened in Tottenham, nor will it be negative. But I have also said that I would like to try something new,” the 27-year-old added.

Already, Spanish giants Real Madrid are eager to land Eriksen as part of their rebuilding project, but Old Trafford landlord Manchester United are reportedly interested in making a move for the playmaker.

The Daily Mail reported in April, Real Madrid chiefs were unwilling to open talks with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy's setting a £130m price tag for Eriksen.

The Los Blancos eggheads wanted Eriksen to make the first move to help bring the cost of a possible deal.

And his latest admission will no doubt open a window to sort out a move to the big-spending Spanish giants this summer.

“I hope there will be a clarification during the summer. That's the plan. In football you do not know when a clarification comes. It can happen anytime. Everyone wants it best if it happens as soon as possible, but in football takes things time. You can't set a date yourself.

“It depends on Daniel Levy. And another club has to come.

'There are not many points that Tottenham cannot meet. If I have to go, then hopefully it will be a step up.

“But it requires Real Madrid to call Tottenham and say they want Christian. And they have not done so yet, as far as I know.”

Eriksen's representative Martin Schoots remains upbeat his client can still seal a deal away from Tottenham.

“Last season there were three clubs, two English and one foreign, interested in paying a huge amount to Spurs. For the club it was then a no-go area and for Christian not a must-have.

“I have the impression we are in a new situation now,” Schoots was quoted as saying to Evening Standard.

On the other hand, Eriksen won’t rule out playing out the final months of his contract or even penning an extension if his ideal scenario of a transfer fails to come through.

“It is hard. It depends on the possibilities. If nothing pops up that is more exciting, why not stay in Tottenham? I have to sit down at the table and negotiate a new contract. If I [will] then sign a new contract, [it] depends on the conditions,” Eriksen submitted.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Tottenham Hotspur have expressed confident that Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen will sign a new contract soon.

The 27-year-old has been impressive for Spurs this campaign - helping them to reach the Champions League semifinals for the first time in their history.

They ousted fellow Premier League side Manchester City at the quarterfinal stage on away goals rule having scored three goals at the Etihad Stadium to qualify 4-4 on aggregate.
