Last Summer, the footballer who scored the opener in the 2-2 derby draw with Arsenal revealed that he was planning on leaving the club to ‘try something new’. Now after his performance, the question of whether he’ll leave this year while his contract ends has gained significant momentum. At the same time, rumours started surfacing that he’s planning on joining the Real Madrid when the contract expires.
When Eriksen was asked to comment on this issue, he said, “I wish I could decide just like in Football Manager, but unfortunately I can’t,” Eriksen told Danish publication Ekstra Bladet.
“To me, it is not difficult to clear my head. I don’t read much of what is written.
“And now I have been involved for many years, where there have been many rumours every year. But it’s clear that it’s been a little more fierce this year because my contract is about to expire.
“I know a lot of people are interested in where I want to play. That’s the way it is. This is how it is in a top club if you have done well. There will always be rumours.”
