The Dane playmaker had a remarkable recovery after he suffered a cardiac arrest last year in the Euro Cup.
After recovering he returned to professional football and joined Brentford in January on a six-month contract till the end of the season.
Since joining the Bees he has made 11 appearances and he has left a mark on the team as well as the fans.
In this campaign, he scored once and provided four assists. That is why the Bees were so desperate to keep him at the club.
Brentford boss Thomas Frank was desperate to keep the 30-year-old. Moreover, he said that he was ‘convinced’ that he would stay.
However, now journalist Alfredo Pedulla reports that Eriksen has decided to leave the Bees this summer.
Eriksen is also back in the national team and is involved in the ongoing Nations League.
Therefore, it is sure that he would attract the attention of major clubs this summer. The two of them leading the race are Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspurs.
Christian Eriksen wants to play in the Champions League next season
Eriksen claimed that he would love to play in the Champions League, soon.
He told Viaplay in May,” I do not think that there are some football players who can just pick and choose between clubs. Because there are many criteria that come into play.”
“There are also many clubs that need to see one’s path before that happens.”
“I have different offers and options, which we are considering, and then we make a decision.”
“And I would love to play Champions League football again. I know how much fun it is, but it isn’t essential for me.”
Therefore, Eriksen’s desire to play in the Champions League could lead him to choose Spurs over United.
Moreover, he spent six and a half years in that club and has the experience of playing under Antonio Conte.
