Eriksen: I Won’t Say No If Barcelona Want Me

Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen has dropped a massive hint that his future could lay somewhere else, particularly if Spanish giants Barcelona come calling for his signature. 

 

The Dane, who scored eight Premier League goals and and assisted another 15 last season to help Spurs to a second-place finish, has seen his brght form spark rumours that Barça were keen for him to join their midfield ranks and supply the bullets for Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

 

"Barcelona is a fantastic football club and I don’t think there are many players who would be able to say no to them. However, until there is actually some concrete interest, I don’t have an opinion," he told FourFourTwo magazine. 

 

Eriksen who was on trial at Barcelona earlier in his career admitted it would be difficult to say no if the Catalans showed an interest in him. 

 

He said: “I’ve already been there in the past [on trial as a teenager] but it didn’t work out too well. But, of course, Barcelona is a fantastic football club and I don’t think there are many players who would be able to say no to them."

 

However, until such a call comes, Eriksen is focused on helping Tottenham to lift the Premier League title for the first time in their history.

 

“When the new season starts and you look back, you have to be happy with the club’s best finish in Premier League history,” he says. “We can be a bit annoyed that Chelsea won 30 games, rather than the 26 we managed, but hats off to them. The plan is for next year to be our year. Fingers crossed. We have proved that we have got the quality to compete at the very highest level but, of course, we would like to show it by ending up with some trophies."
