But now Tottenham watch as both Real Madrid and Barcelona chase after their best players, with the lure of bigger contracts and silverware.

Eriksen's national team manager, Age Hareide, claimed on Tuesday that the 26-year-old would be a star for either Real or Barca, even claiming that he is a better player now than Luka Modric. Dreaming is one thing, but you don't know what's realistic until you see it on the table.

"I think he is a type that can adapt to anything".

Spurs can trigger an option to extend the contract until 2020 but that would activate a buyout clause allowing him to leave if a £25 million bid comes in before the final two weeks of the summer 2019 window.

Last season with the centre-back in the side, Spurs conceded 26 goals in the Premier League all season.

Almost 20,000 civilians fled the town and surrounding areas in the first mass exodus since the Ghouta offensive began a month ago. Syrian official news agency SANA released this picture of Syrian civilians holding bags of belongings as they flee fighting.

The CIES Football Observatory has calculated that England striker Kane, brought through the ranks at Spurs, would be worth more in profit to the north Londoners than Lionel Messi at Barcelona. I think they are a couple away, a couple away. Now people look at us as title candidates whereas previously we had to fight to get into the top four and even the top six.

"Wembley suits us and we've had a good season there. Nevertheless, we have still had an absolutely positive season so far", he added.
