He said; “I feel that I am a place in my career where I might want to try something new. I hope there will be clarification during the summer. That’s the plan. In football, you do not know when clarification will come. It can happen anytime. It would be best for everyone if it happens as soon as possible, but in football things take time.”
Continuing to talk about the possibility of moving away, he added, “It depends on Daniel Levy. And another club has to come in. Or I have to sit down at the table and negotiate a new contract. You can’t set a date yourself.”

“If I have to go, then hopefully it will be a step up. It’s [a potential move to Real Madrid] a step up. But that requires Real Madrid to call Tottenham and say they want me. And they have not done so yet, as far as I know,” Eriksen said when asked about a potential move to Real Madrid.
The Danish midfielder acknowledged the fact that is it is difficult to leave Spurs and revealed that he would be open to signing a new deal too. He said, “It is hard. It depends on the possibilities. If nothing pops up that is more exciting, why not stay at Tottenham? If I am to sign a new contract it depends on the conditions.”
