Agent Bayram Tutumlu has revealed that Barcelona had expressed an interest in signing Christian Eriksen from Tottenham Hotspur during the last transfer window. However, a deal could not materialise for the Denmark international with his representative Martin Schoots said to have hampered the move.
In a report covered by Calciomercato, Tutumlu said: “I was invited to see Christian Eriksen in London in September, even though he was having a renovation of the house, and here he asked me what to do to get to a bigger club. I told him that a bigger club wants him. I also told Christian Eriksen that Barcelona is looking at more things when buying a player, not just his football qualities. And it ended with the fact that they bought Coutinho instead. This is because alone, his agent (Martin Schoots) has destroyed it for him.” (more…)
