    I clearly recall Sugar saying at the time (after dragging his heels until the last moment it has to be said) that he eventually made a very generous offer but Campbell was just not interested, he'd already made up his mind to go.

    As annoying as it was Campbell’s choice was at least logical, there is no logic in Eriksen leaving now, just as we are on the cusp of dominating football for decades, we’ll win more European Cups over the next 10 years than Spain and Manchester combined.

    You're worrying too much.
    It is Barca or nowhere as far as I have heard. What possible good would it do him to sign a contract now having not signed one last summer? None. Depending on what we do/don't achieve, he could end up getting even more than he is currently being offered.
    My gut feeling is he will sign a new bumper deal in the summer once Barca don't come running in for him. Either that or we will not let him go this summer and force a drag down. Poch might well have surmised that a replacement cannot be found for the value we'd lose on a fee in keeping him. We shall see. But I do think you're over-worrying mate. And the Campbell situation is very different IMO. Again, I remember the whole thing and had heard the whisper he was fudging us off in that new year; what I don't think anyone knew was that he was going there, not until the very end.

    Eriksen is, again, a different kettle...quite a sensitive and thoughtful bloke. Confidence and the like is easily disrupted. He has certainly developed a tougher streak in that regard, and it is again hard to remember that he is still a relatively young man.

    I’m not worried at all. Many more things to be worried about than a report on football London.

    The difference between clambell and Eriksen is that we will get paid a decent penny if we let him leave this summer.

    And of course we can force him to see out his contract and stay another year - that obviously won't happen, but as a theoretical exercise it shows that the club has much more power in this situation than with judas back then.

    The difference now is the club have learned and can see it coming. Levy himself has been quoted as saying he’ll never allow the club to get into that position again.

    Ahhhhh, my bad. Profuse apologies. It appeared from your numerous posts on this that you were a tad concerned. My bad.

    Didn't Poch just want Eriksen to take him for dinner at Noma?

    He's not a Bayern type signing either. Their model is buying low (their record transfer is still only about £40m)

    I'd say it's Barca or nowhere, and if he does end up there Levy will get the best deal possible. Some sneaky clauses in there and Messi will end up playing for us.

    Do you think Barca would be trying to swap Coutinho with everyone this summer? Hard to believe how much they paid for him in hindsight

    Yes, they went for eats, but these guys eat at the very best restaurants frequently.

    So... Cheatski have a 2 window transfer ban (subject to appeal). If it does come into effect in the summer, this could mean they decide not to let Hazard leave (ignoring player power for the sake of argument)? Making Eriksen as a next option for Madrid? (Or Madrid as an option for Eriksen?)

    They've already bought Pulisic as Hazard's replacement. Hazard walks on a free in 15 months time too, so they'd lose all fee on him if he doesn't go this summer.

    To be frank it doesn't take hindsight to see they overpaid for him. Liverpool did very well out of that deal.

    The way that Eriksen is tending to drop a little deeper, it could be Rakatic's neck on the chopping block rather than Countinho.

    I think you are right. There would be too much money in play to let him go on a free. Hazard to Madrid this summer looks on, and it is a good match.

    This. They will no doubt drag out the appeal long enough to do their business this summer. And have the ban shortened to one window.
