first_imgTOTTENHAM chairman Daniel Levy is “not scared” of selling Christian Eriksen to Manchester United.The Danish playmaker has rejected several approaches, worth up to £200,000 one-week, from Spurs to extend his contract that expires at the end of the season.3 Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is ‘not scared’ of selling Christian Eriksen to Man UtdCredit: Rex FeaturesAt the start of next month Eriksen can negotiate a deal to join any overseas club for free next season – so Levy is looking to sell the midfielder in the winter widow.The Spurs chief is even open to flogging Eriksen to a rival club in order to prevent losing him for nothing in six months, as United and Real Madrid lead the race for the 27-year-old.Levy told The Standard: “We are honestly not scared to trade with our rivals.”Defenders Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are in similar situations, and looked set to run down the remaining months on their contracts.3But after Jose Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino, and Spurs moved within three points from Chelsea in fourth, the duo are said to be considering committing their future to Tottenham.Levy, though, has insisted the contract rebels will have to be fully committed to the club if they are to sign new deals.He explained: “My view is really simple. For a player to sign a new contract, not only have the conditions got to be right but the player has got to want to do it.“It is up to those players whether they want to stay at Tottenham and we’ll see. I don’t want to comment on ­individual players too much.“I actually think it is unfair. Every circumstance is different. There may be a player who wants to stay, there may be a player we don’t want to stay.”Tottenham coach Jose Mourinho says everyone has the same chances in the first knockout round of the Champions LeagueMost read in FootballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himAfter Mourinho inherited the squad, and revived midfielder Dele Alli, he claimed the North Londoners did not need improvement in the January window.And Levy agrees, as he said: “Jose is on record as saying what we need now is to get the players playing better, which is what they are doing.“He’s made it clear he is not looking for new players in January.
