With the European transfer window closed, the focus will be on the first international break of this season.

Several players from the Premier League will join their national team and it also gives them an opportunity to speak to the local press over several topics, including those of failed moves this summer.

That’s what has happened with Tottenham Hotspur’s Christian Eriksen, who joined the Denmark squad for the European qualifiers against Gibraltar and Georgia.

With less than a year left on his Spurs contract, the former Ajax man was linked with a move away from the north London club.

Eriksen sat down for a chat with Danish media on Monday and he told Ekstra Bladet, “I wish I could decide [my future] just as in Football Manager, but unfortunately I can’t.”

Earlier in June, he publicly expressed his desire to look for a new challenge, something he has failed to do so far.

When further quizzed if he was wrong to make those comments, the Dane said: “No, it wasn’t. But it is football and you never know what happens in football. Many things always come into play.”

Eriksen admitted he can talk more about his future now that the window is closed. He is also aware there’s interest in his next destination mainly due to his contract situation. However, he refused to provide any insight on where he will play in 2020.

“Yes, I understand that well. I know a lot of people are interested in where I play. That’s the way it is,” the player explained.

“For me it’s not hard 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 has been a little more violent this year because my contract is about to expire.”

The Dane stressed he wants to avoid talking more about his future because he wants to focus on national team.

The Premier League window closed on August 8th, while the European transfer window closed on September 2nd. Eriksen has urged the English clubs to scrap early closure of the window.

“It definitely makes the best sense if everyone is on the same page,” BT quoted Eriksen as saying.

“I think most English clubs eventually want the English transfer window to close at the same time as other European clubs…”

Mauricio Pochettino had earlier demanded the domestic and the European window should close at the same time and Eriksen has now echoed his manager’s comments.
