Agent Reveals Barcelona Were Interested In Christian Eriksen Last Summer

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…)
