SINGAPORE – Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen trained on his own on Friday ahead of a pre-season match against Juventus in Singapore, adding to speculation the Real Madrid and Barcelona target could leave the London club.
Eriksen is entering the final year of his contract at Tottenham and could leave for free next summer.
Last month, the Denmark international said he was ready to take on a new challenge.
Argentine manager Mauricio Pochettino told reporters Eriksen trained alone due to a “minor surgery” the playmaker underwent after Tottenham lost 2-0 in the Champions League final to Liverpool in June.
“It's difficult for me to comment for the player,” Pochettino said when asked about Eriksen's desire to leave the club. “Because he got a small, little minor surgery after the final ... that is why he chose today to rather train alone.
