Man City target Christian Eriksen unlikely to leave Ajax this summer

Christian Eriksen, who has been linked with the likes of Manchester City and rivals Manchester United, insists he plans to stay at Ajax next season - even if his form at Euro 2012 attracts bids from Europe's top clubs.

The highly-rated 20-year-old playmaker has also been linked with AC Milan, with his client recently admitting a move to the San Siro was "very interesting", along with Barcelona and Chelsea, while Anzhi Makhachkala are also believed to be keen on signing him this summer.

But the Denmark international, who played in Saturday's 1-0 win over Netherlands in their Euro 2012 opener, believes he should stay with Ajax for at least one more year.

"I think the best thing for me will be to play for Ajax next season," Eriksen told Goal.com.

"I need to play and develop rather than rush in to a big step and make a mistake.

"I would like to play in one of the big leagues - the Premier League, La Liga or Serie A - but I'm only 20 and I have time. I've seen players move too soon.

"My captain at Ajax [Jan Vertonghen] has waited for the right time in his career to leave Ajax. He says I should stay next year and I agree with him.

"I want to be a key player for Ajax next season and then we will see. I don't think it matters how I play here [at Euro 2012]."

Eriksen is under contract with Ajax until 2014.
