Why I want to leave Spurs, by Eriksen

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen has confessed that he is ready for a new challenge this summer, as Real Madrid continue to be linked with the Dane.

Harry Kane's comeback from injury took numerous column inches by Son Heung-min, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen all failed to live up to what we've come to expect from them in Spurs shirts. Real often ask their targets to make a public gesture or statement to exert pressure on their club to sell. I have the wildest and deepest respect for everything that has happened in Tottenham, so I won't be negative. "If I sign a new contract, it will depend on the conditions", he said.

That was the Spurs playmaker's last visit to the Irish capital and if you were hoping that the 27-year-old would be suffering a Champions League hangover for this weekend's Euro 2020 qualifier, we've got some bad news.

I hope something will be decided this summer - that is the plan.

Daniel Levy, the chairman, has quoted £130m for him, which might seem like wishful thinking but it offers an impression of where he is drawing the lines for negotiations.

Eriksen was talking while on worldwide duty with Denmark ahead of Friday's Euro 2020 qualifier against Ireland.

The news of Eriksen considering his future will come as a blow to Spurs, who were looking to use their emphatic run to the Champions League final as a springboard for next season. Everyone thinks it's best if it happens as soon as possible, but in football takes things time. You can't set a date yourself. This time, however, he is not sure of his chances with the Danish midfielder and hence he has already lined up a move for Real Madrid's Isco, as per reports in Don Balon. "It depends on the possibilities".

"But I have also said I would like to try something new".
