Transfer: PSG emerge as contenders for Eriksen

If Neymar leaves Paris, then PSG may make a move for Christian Eriksen.

The repercussions of the Neymar transfer saga spread far and wide and could potentially involve up to half a dozen clubs.

The latest club to be caught up in the deal is Tottenham Hotspurs. This will not disappoint chairman Daniel Levy at all.

According to Talksport, Spurs will come into play if Neymar leaves because PSG views Christian Eriksen as a viable option to bring in as his replacement.

The French club will have limited time and limited options. Almost anyone who sells will need to buy a replacement.

Spurs don’t have that option. Their transfer window is closed and is already without Eriksen to all intense and purpose.

He has made it clear he wants out of North London.

Before the summer transfer window even opened, Eriksen had said he wanted to try something new. He had his heart set on a move to Real Madrid.

Now Madrid has not come calling yet, and I stress the yet, as they may well make the last-minute move if the price is right.

Manchester United enquired, but the player wants to leave England.

Only last summer several clubs including most of the above made inquiries about Eriksen. Only to be told by Levy the price was 130 million.

Nobody pressed the matter, and now Levy finds himself with a player that wants to leave, who only has 12 months left on his current contract and has already turned down a 200,000 pound a week contract extension.

The situation is, if Spurs don’t sell now he will more than likely leave for free next summer.

This is not something Daniel Levy or anyone at Spurs wants to contemplate.

The ramifications to Spurs’s finances would be colossal. With the added expense of their new stadium and then Eriksen and Alderweireld both potentially leaving on a free.

Mauricio Pochettino may have no money to sign players for quite sometime after.

The talk is that there may be a deal to be had between 64 and 73 million Euros.

It is thought that Levy would snatch the handoff of anyone willing to get him out of a potentially dire situation.
