Christian Eriksen Rejected Four High-Profile Clubs This Summer
Martin Schoots, Christian Eriksen’s agent, has revealed that his client had offers from four of Europe’s top clubs this summer.
Eriksen recently signed a new four-year contract (worth around £75,000-a-week) with Tottenham Hotspur this summer, but the Danish midfielder had the chance to switch Spurs for a more high-profile club.
Manchester United, Atletico Madrid, Juventus, and Paris-Saint Germain were all believed to have been interested in the 24-year-old during the summer.
The player’s agent revealed that Eriksen felt Tottenham was his home, and that he wouldn’t fit in well with any other clubs. Schoots also revealed that the player had always wanted to be with the London-based club since his departure from Ajax in 2013.

“Christian is just very happy at Spurs, as a player, and as a person,” Martin started.
“He wanted to move to Tottenham three years ago, even when other clubs were interested in that period, including a big German club who could guarantee Champions League football. But he was convinced about Spurs, and he still is.
“There have been a couple of clubs showing interest over the last 18 months, yes. Sometimes I read fans on the internet saying they are surprised they don’t hear anything about interest from other clubs in Christian. But that is just not our style.
“It is useless to talk publicly about these matters, the day after a club has called. It does not contribute to a good atmosphere, in which the player feels happy.”
Christian Eriksen joined Tottenham Hotspur in 2013 in a deal reported to be worth £11 million. He came as part of Spurs’ £110 million spending season, after the club sold Gareth Bale for a then record £85 million.
The Danish playmaker became a key part of the Spurs midfield, and is always contributing with assists and goals.
