Tottenham star ready for Barcelona or Real Madrid

Christian Eriksen is ready for the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid and should leave Tottenham if the right offer comes along, according to former Denmark goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen.

The Spurs playmaker has enjoyed a superb season under Mauricio Pochettino, with 10 goals and 11 assists helping them to a third-place finish in the Premier League. The 26-year-old has been linked with LaLiga's most powerful clubs, with Barca said to be particularly interested as they seek a long-term replacement for departing captain Andres Iniesta. Sorensen thinks now would be the right time for his compatriot to move to one of Europe's elite.

"I know he has great feelings for Tottenham," he told Perform. "He's also a loyal guy, so for him to leave Tottenham, it would really need to be something special. If Barcelona, Real Madrid – those kinds of clubs came calling – he'll definitely need to consider it. I don't know exactly his position or his situation but he'll definitely fit in there. I think he's mature enough now to go to a big club like that, where the expectations are there, also playing with other great players. I think he's at the right time now where he's ready for that. So, if that opportunity comes and it's possible for him, I think he should go."

Sorensen, who earned 101 senior caps for Denmark and even shared a room with Eriksen at the 2010 World Cup, thinks his old team-mate has developed into a true leader for club and country.
