Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City - Premier League

The time is right for Christian Eriksen to leave Tottenham and head to Barcelona or Real Madrid, well that’s the opinion of former Danish international Thomas Sorensen.

The 26-year-old has just enjoyed another fine season with Spurs and ends the season with 15 goals and 11 assists. Mauricio Pochettino’s men will play Champions League football again next year after finishing in third place in the Premier League.

The idea of Eriksen playing for Barcelona has long been a tempting one and Sorensen reckons it might be time for his compatriot to head to Spain.

“He is a loyal guy, so for him to leave Tottenham it would need to be something special,” he said.

“If Barcelona or Real Madrid came calling, he would definitely need to consider it. He would definitely fit in there -- he’s mature enough now to go to a big club like that with the expectations and playing with other great players.

“He is at the right time now that he’s ready for that so, if the opportunity comes and it’s possible for him, he should go.”

Eriksen joined from Ajax in 2013 and signed a new four-year deal with Spurs in 2016 that will keep him at the club until 2020.

It could be a pretty interesting summer at Spurs with Pochettino having said the club need to take risks in the transfer market if they are to win trophies.

The club are due to move into their new stadium shortly, and a number of their players such as Danny Rose, Mousa Dembele and Toby Alderweireld are alll being heavily linked with a move away.
