A couple of seasons back it would have been unthinkable for Tottenham to even consider allowing Christian Eriksen to depart but circumstances have changed and it may well be in their best interest to part ways with their Danish superstar.
Eriksen was poor last season, he was non-existent in the Champions League final, his crossing has been abysmal and he looks the shadow of the player he once was and if a top club comes in with an offer anywhere near £100 Million then Daniel Levy should snap their hands off.
When Spurs sold Gareth Bale they used that money to bring in at least five players, one of those was the Dane and there is no reason they cannot repeat that trick this time around and I would argue that losing Bale was far more significant a blow than it would be to lose Ericksen.
Don’t get me wrong, Ericksen is a match winner and can change a game in an instant but that has become rarer and rarer recently and the number of games that Tottenham lost last season it confirmation of that.
It should also be noted that recent comments from the playmaker will have hardly inspired confidence that he wants to remain in North London.
Ericksen has been a good servant for Tottenham but the time is about right for a parting of ways, it would suit everyone involved in a positive way and that is always the best time for a divorce.
