Former Denmark goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen has revealed Tottenham Hotspur midfielder is ready to play for either Real Madrid or Barcelona.
Christian Eriksen has been at Tottenham for five seasons but has yet to win a major trophy since joining the side from Ajax in 2013.
The 26-year-old, who led the Spurs to three successive top-four finishes, has been strongly linked with Barcelona move in recent months.
“He is a loyal guy, so for him to leave Tottenham it would need to be something special,” Sorensen told Omnisport.
“If Barcelona or Real Madrid came calling, he would definitely need to consider it. He would definitely fit in there — he’s mature enough now to go to a big club like that with the expectations and playing with other great players.”
“He is at the right time now that he’s ready for that so, if the opportunity comes and it’s possible for him, he should go.”
📰 • Christian Eriksen is confident that manager Mauricio Pochettino can improve Tottenham Hotspur even further next season. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Eriksen: “He’s really important. You can see what he has achieved with this club. When I arrived there was a season with a lot of ups and downs at first but ever since it’s really been very stable – finishing in the top three is a big achievement for the manager. I enjoy how we play under the manager. I think the style of play is something that suits me and the players we have. Generally, you’re going into every game with excitement.” #THFC
Eriksen, who scored 14 goals and 11 assists in 46 appearances for Mauricio Pochettino side this season, is still under contract at Spurs until 2020.
