De Boer: Reality is Ajax cannot keep Eriksen from moving to Man Utd, Chelsea

Ajax coach Frank de Boer admits Christian Eriksen will eventually be tempted away.

There was audible disapproval when De Boer said Eriksen could "play for a big team like Manchester United in the future". De Boer was asked how sad it was that Ajax could not be mentioned in such terms.

"You just have to look at the facts," he replied. "Look at the difference in turnover between the clubs and the difference in revenue from TV contracts there is between England and the Netherlands. We lose our big players now to the bigger leagues around the age of 23."
