Tottenham set to let go of Christian Eriksen as Pochettino and Daniel Levy reach agreement to take £50m from suitors.
Pochettino and his men are about to suffer a big blow, losing Christian Eriksen who has played a vital role in their team’s success as Tottenham has decided to let go of Eriksen.
According to reports, the club’s Chairman, Daniel Levy has decided to let go of Christian Eriksen after the British business man met with Mauricio Pochettino.
It’s believed that if Spurs keeps Eriksen until his contract expires next year, then they would be losing him for nothing on a free transfer. The North London team has no option than to let go Eriksen this transfer window.
Tottenham might find it difficult once they let go of Eriksen, considering his impact in the squad. But Spurs seems ready to take the risk despite having no opportunity to bring in a replacement for the Danish.
Coming off the bench and taking his side from 1 goal down to a 3-1 victory clarifies his impact in the team.
According to the manager’s statements, Eriksen is a player we would love to have around cause his skills and talents are needed to move the club forward but he [Pochettino] can’t help it but to just let go of the midfielder.
“It is not what I think the club or the player expected [it] to be. You cannot put a finger on the problem,” Mauricio Pochettino said.
He continued, “you try to minimize the problem, try to treat the situation. This is an important player who needs to help the team with his performances.
“I am always open to help the club and to help the decision of Daniel [Levy, the chairman].
“I know really well that decisions like this are not easy but I always try to be in the position to take the best benefit for the club. And for the player, too.
“The most important thing is to try to take the best decision for both sides.”
Eriksen would be let go if only the suitor meets his £50m valuation as decided by the club.
Both Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid has been linked to considering a bid for the 27 year old.
