Denmark coach Åge Hareide feels that Tottenham Christian Eriksen is ready to make the move to a Barcelona or a Real Madrid, saying the players at those two clubs are no better than the midfielder.
“When looking at the players that play centrally for Real Madrid and Barcelona, none of them are better than Christian. When Luka Modric came from Tottenham to Real Madrid, and he was not as good as Christian," he told Ritzau.
As well as shining in the Premier League, the 26-year-old was brilliant in qualifying for the World Cup, scoring 11 goals and providing three assists, including a hat-trick in the vital playoff win over Ireland.
“I think he is a type that can adapt to anything,” Hareide added. “Give him a ball, then the ball will speak for him wherever he is. Christian is a type that just gets better from dealing with better football players.
"He has progressed a lot with Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham, a team that plays well and inspires us. They will have a new stadium soon, too, so I don't see why he wouldn't continue in London."
