Christian Eriksen might end up switching to a rival English club.
Such a one must necessarily interpret a statement from Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, who in a rare interview on Wednesday, indirect and general terms and open for the opportunity.
"We're honestly not afraid to trade with our rivals," says Daniel Levy thus to the newspaper the London Evening Standard.
Christian eriksen's contract expires after this season, and from January to may Christian Eriksen therefore negotiate with other clubs about a change of clubs here and now or a switch on a free transfer this summer.
January's transfervindue is therefore the deadline for Tottenham, if the club needs to make money on a sale of Eriksen, which, of course, in theory, could end up extending his contract with Tottenham.
The Danish landsholdsprofil is not the only one to have an uncertain future in tottenham's squad, which other players also have end of contract in the foreseeable future.
Daniel Levy is often described as a hard dealer, and for him is the renewal also not rocket science. He says himself virtually never to the English media, but has chosen to do it now.
"My position is very simple. A player must extend a contract, so must the circumstances be in order, and the player must desire it."
"It is up to the players whether they want to stay in Tottenham, and we get to see what happens."
"I don't want to comment too much on individual players. I think, frankly, that it is not okay to do. The circumstances are always different from player to player," says Daniel Levy.
He dismissed in november Mauricio Pochettino as manager after more than five years of close cooperation between the two. In came Jose Mourinho, at a time when Tottenham were 12 points from the fourth place in the Premier League.
Under the portugiseren, which is known too often to buy expensive players, is the distance to fourth place reduced to three points.
Levy uses in the interview, the opportunity to make it clear that that is not necessarily new players on the way to the club.
"He (Mourinho, ed.) has made it clear that he does not want new players in January. He is happy for the squad," says Levy.
In two seasons bought Tottenham not a single player, while the club built its expensive stadium finished. It caused a lot of criticism of the president among the club's fans. Levy, however, has repeatedly stated that procurement is not the solution to everything all the time for a football club.
"We have to remove the occupation in English football, who is about to spend money all the time. It happens just in the same way abroad," says Levy.
