Eriksen rejected the Citizens for fear of getting no game time.
Christian Eriksen has greatly impressed during the attacking midfielder’s first matches for Tottenham Hotspur, but the Dane reveals how Manchester City tried to sign the 21-year-old last year.
The Denmark international says that the former Ajax star was interested in a switch to the Premier League for some time, but did not feel that City were the right fit.
“Last summer City really wanted to try to sign me, but it didn’t feel right for me,” Eriksen was quoted by the Telegraph.
“Maybe I wouldn’t have played at City and I wouldn’t go to a club just to stay on the bench.”
There have been several big name players that have made the switch to the Etihad Stadium and then found themselves barely being used by a club with a deep pool of talent.
Spurs meanwhile have generally been very careful in the transfer market in recent times, but the world record £85.3m sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid gave the side the opportunity to sanction £107m worth of new talent.
Eriksen was am £11.5m arrival from the Dutch champions, with the north London club’s record transfer fee being broken three times in the summer with the arrival of Paulinho, Roberto Soldado and then Erik Lamela.
However, it is the Dane that had perhaps impressed the most so far, with commanding performances in the last week against both Norwich City and Tromso.
It looks as if Eriksen could be a key part of Tottenham’s success this year, operating in the No.10 role behind the striker.
