Danish playmaker Christian Eriksen has reportedly rejected a new £150k-a-week deal at Tottenham Hotspur as he seeks to force a move away from the London club.
With his contract expiring at the end of the season, Spurs have been trying to negotiate a new, improved deal with one of the precious jewels knowing pretty well that the attacking midfielder will be able to negotiate with foreign clubs from January 2020.
The situations put The Lilywhites at a disadvantaged position and might be forced to sell the player in the next transfer window or risk losing him for free come summer.
Spur’s manager Jose Mourinho has warned Eriksen his future when deciding whether to pick him in his first eleven on match days.
“Is he leaving? Is he staying? Let’s talk about his commitment for the club and for his colleagues and for the project and he’s with us.
“My decisions about starting him or not starting, selecting or not selecting, will be based on a perspective of a future,” Jose Mourinho explained according to UK Sun.
Eriksen started on the bench for the Champions League finalists in their 3-2 win over West Ham United last weekend, which was Jose Mourinho’s first game in charge of Spurs.
