Tottenham Hotspur legend Chris Waddle has warned the club that star midfielder Christian Eriksen will leave the team if they do not offer him more money, with Real Madrid and Barcelona believed to be interested in signing him.
The 26-year-old has been a key player for Tottenham in recent years and has emerged as one of the world’s finest creative midfielders since moving to London in 2013. He has racked up 57 goals and 71 assists in his 234 appearances for the club, and is regularly linked with a huge transfer away from the club.
Speaking in an interview with Sportingbet (via the Sunday Express), Waddle claimed that Eriksen will ask to leave the club if they refuse to offer him an increased salary. He said: “
“This is where Daniel Levy decides what type of club he wants Tottenham to be and where he wants them to go.
“It would be a massive statement to give Eriksen a new deal, but would also be a big red flag if they don’t. It would be a fantastic move if he signed a new deal, but money will talk loudest.”
