Man Utd target Tottenham star to replace Real Madrid-bound Paul Pogba

Manchester United are reportedly planning a move for Tottenham Hotspur’s Christian Eriksen should Real Madrid go ahead with their plans to sign Paul Pogba.

Not that his anyway consistent, losing Pogba would be a blow for United. There are moments where he’s shown glimpses of brilliance but Eriksen has been more of a constant threat at Spurs.

The Dane does it for his club and country, acting as a magician/deep-lying playmaker.

Pogba cost the club £89 million in 2016, as per BBC Sport, but his return to Old Trafford has not seen the heights he would have expected.

The French midfielder has made his wish no secret by stating that it would be a ‘dream’ to play for Real Madrid under Zinedine Zidane.

If the Spanish giants move in for Pogba this summer, it’s hard to see him resist the offer. In that case, United need to have a plan of their own.

Step forward, Christian Eriksen.

The Sun suggest United will make a move for the Spurs star if Real Madrid land Pogba.

Eriksen has recorded nine goals and 14 assists this season, with Spurs set to clinch the third spot in the Premier League.

He has one year left on his contract at White Heart Lane, meaning Spurs chiefs could be forced into selling Eriksen sooner rather than later.

“It is a very special situation,” said Mauricio Pochettino, as per the Daily Star, when asked about his star player’s contract situation.

“Christian is a special person. We are all special, different. We need to understand that. The timing for him or for the club to be agreeing something is maybe different to another player.”
