“In the future I see myself at the highest level” Tottenham Superstar Comments On Barcelona Rumours

Christian Eriksen

Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen, in one way or the other, has refused to rule out a move to Barcelona amidst the fact that the Catalonians are pursuing him as a replacement for Philippe Coutinho.

As per the reports from Spanish media, Barcelona see Eriksen as a “clear alternative” to their long-term target Coutinho. At the same time, however, the Spanish giants are well aware of the fact that it is impossible for them to lure Eriksen out of London given that he is of utmost importance to the Lilywhites. Besides, with Daniel Levy being a competent negotiator, it will take something very big for Barcelona to conclude the negotiation, if they are really thinking about the deal.

The Danish international, who scored a brilliant hat-trick against the Republic of Ireland in the World Cup qualifiers, has seen his stock rise high and all this certainly hasn’t gone unnoticed. Spanish tabloid Mundo Deportivo (h/t Daily Mail) claimed earlier that Barcelona sent their technical director Robert Fernandez to scout the Dane. Hence, an official offer can be expected soon.

Furthermore, Fernandez – who was involved in Barcelona’s pursuit of Philippe Coutinho throughout the summer – was reportedly present in Tottenham’s 3-1 victory over Real Madrid at the Wembley last month, just to keep an eye on Eriksen’s performance. The Danish international sees his current Tottenham contract running until 2020 and while he has said that he is happy at the club, he has refused to rule out a potential move to Barcelona. 

“I still have a contract with Tottenham for a few more years,” Eirksen told Ekstra Bladet. “There are always rumours about footballers.

“I was there at one point, and it was not very good. Barcelona are a great club. I don’t think there are many who say no to Barcelona. In the future I see myself at the highest level. That’s what I dream about.

“It can be about two to three years. It may be in another club or it could be Tottenham if we have come all the way up.”

Eriksen has already scored 4 goals and 3 assists this season in all competitions and not to mention that impeccable hattrick which saw Denmark cruise into the World Cup. His recent comments will surely alert the Barcelona officials this January or maybe in the summer, but, the Catalonians have Daniel Levy to deal with.
