The European media is packed full of reactions to Paul Pogba’s comments at the weekend. The midfielder made it very clear he wants to leave Manchester United this summer, and that’s set everyone off on tangents.
Spanish newspaper AS has a little snippet about what all of this means for Christian Eriksen. The Tottenham player has already sent out something of a come-and-get-me-plea to Real Madrid himself, but there’s no way the club will sign both him and Pogba.
It’s been claimed repeatedly that Pogba is Zinedine Zidane’s preference over the Spurs man, despite others at Madrid believing the Denmark international may be a better option.
AS say Eriksen is an ‘obvious victim’ of the Pogna situation, and they explain he’s now ‘desperate’ about his future. According to the claims, the 27 year old Tottenham player already had a personal agreement with Real Madrid and was just waiting for them to make a move over the transfer.
That now looks unlikely so Eriksen is left worrying about his own future with Spurs rather than dreaming about a Madrid transfer.
