The Denmark international has remained loyal to his Dutch employers over recent years, with it important to him to honour the club who nurtured him through their academy ranks.

It is, however, considered to be only a matter of time before one of European football's most sought-after talents takes the plunge and opens the door to a high-profile switch elsewhere.

As he is contracted to Ajax until 2014 there is no suggestion of that happening any time soon, but Eriksen has hinted at a future move by blocking Ajax's efforts to talk terms.

"We want Christian to sign a new deal, but he is not interested," Ajax's sporting director Marc Overmars told BT.

"We do have talks planned with him and his agent, so we will have to see what happens in December."

On his contract stance, Eriksen, who has been linked with Liverpool and Manchester giants United and City in the past, said: "I am under contract and happy at Ajax. I appreciate the fact that they want to extend my deal, but I also feel that at some point I will want to try something new.

"My agent is in contact with the club and I have not accepted or declined anything yet."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
