Christian Eriksen has batted away fresh speculation linking him with a move to Barcelona or Real Madrid.

Eriksen is in the midst of a fine season at Tottenham, with the club fourth and in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

His form has attracted apparent interest from Spain’s two biggest clubs, with his national team manager suggesting he is better than Luka Modric was at the same stage of their development.

The player himself has now responded to the latest rumours, stating that he is “very happy” at Tottenham.

“To be honest, I do not think about [interest from elsewhere],” he told Danish publication BT.

“You play football in the present, but you also have dreams. Dreams are one thing, but they are only realistic when [an offer] is on the table. Right now, most people are very happy at Tottenham and I am also.

“All footballers would like to win the Premier League or the Champions League or FA Cup. I think most people just want to win some trophies. You can try to ask Kasper [Schmeichel] how he felt after winning the Premier League. I think it was a good feeling.

“We have been close to in the last couple of seasons, but in this season we have not been around. Nevertheless, we have still had an absolutely positive season so far.

“Yes, [I can win trophies with Spurs]. If you think where Tottenham was when I came to where we are now. 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.

“We may have to build and build to become capable of winning a trophy but we are on the way the right track.”
