Mauricio Pochettino claims Tottenham star has the “right to do” what he wants regarding contract extension



Christian Eriksen Tottenham

Mauricio Pochettino reiterated his desire to keep Christian Eriksen at Tottenham but added that the Dane was in his rights to decide on his future.

The former Ajax star is contracted to Tottenham till 2020, but there has been no progress on him signing a new deal (h/t Metro).

The Metro adds that Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus are interested in the 26-year-old, and Tottenham could decide to sell the Dane in the summer rather than lose him on a free.

Pochettino was speaking ahead of our clash against Tranmere Rovers in the FA Cup and claimed different parties have interests before highlighting the importance of Eriksen (h/t Metro):

“Of course, Christian Eriksen is such an important player for Tottenham and of course as a person or as a professional coach or manager, you would like to have this type of player with you.

“But in the end it’s a negotiation and there’s different parties that have different interests.

“It will be fantastic if Christian Eriksen is going to be committed with the club for a long-term, and if not it’s his right to do what he wants to do.”

Pochettino added that Eriksen is happy at the club and is showing his commitment to the cause.

The report adds that the Dane is paid £75,000 per week, which is lower than the top earners Dele Alli and Harry Kane.

It would be a huge blow if we are to lose Eriksen as the Dane has the potential to get even better in the years to come.
