Christian Eriksen is not set to decide on his future any time soon, with sources at Brentford predicting at least another week’s wait in that regard.
That’s according to Tipsbladet, who cover his and teammate Mathias ‘Zanka’ Jørgensen in a piece today.
Eriksen was the star of the show for Brentford last season, arriving in the January transfer window and going on to play a key role in them staying in the Premier League.
His deal at the club officially expired today, though, meaning the Danish star is a free agent for the foreseeable future.
It’s believed the midfielder has offers on the table from clubs around Europe, particularly in the Premier League, where Brentford, Manchester United, Everton and several other clubs are believed to have made offers to him.
It was felt a decision was imminent, but Tipsbladet say that is not the case, and those waiting for a decision will need to be ‘a little more patient’.
That’s because sources at Brentford have told them Eriksen is not set to return to training for at least another week.
They expect the midfielder to announce his decision before training starts again, with the player keen to start training at his new club and not have to swap between clubs, which would require building new relationships from scratch.
In other words, he doesn’t want to start work with Brentford, then have to leave them and start again at his new club. Thus a decision on his future is still pending.
It’s a similar situation for Brentford’s Mathias Jorgensen, who is also yet to make a decision on his future with the Bees.
His deal also expired today, and while there have been no discussions about a new deal as yet, he is still ‘welcome’ to start training with Thomas Frank’s side.
Jorgensen is yet to take up that offer, according to Tipsbladet’s sources, as he does not know where his future lies as yet.
Thus, Brentford are waiting to see whether the two Danes will be departing or extending their stay next season.
