Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho reportedly expects Christian Eriksen to head through the exit door with the Dane having no plans of signing a new contract with the club.

The Denmark international has just seven months remaining on his existing deal with Spurs and he has shown no intention of holding talks over a possible contract extension.

Mourinho recently swayed away from the topic by stating that Eriksen is committed to the club but The Telegraph reports that the Portuguese is aware of the playmaker's decision to move on.

Real Madrid and Juventus have been highlighted as the prime candidates interested in the former Ajax graduate and reports have emerged that the latter could seek to negotiate a pre-contract deal in January.

Eriksen has made just two substitute appearances in Mourinho's three games in charge and it appears that the Portuguese is reluctant to offer the Dane with more gametime knowing that he will head through the exit door.
