Man Utd expect Christian Eriksen to be available for £80m this summer

Manchester United expect Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen to be available for between £70 and £80m this summer.

That comes from the Evening Standard, who claim Spurs are willing to sell the Dane, who has just one year left on his current deal at the club.

Eriksen has already expressed his desire to ‘try something new’, following Spurs’ Champions League final defeat to Liverpool in Madrid.

However, it is unclear whether the 27-year-old midfielder would be prepared to move to Old Trafford as the club is without Champions League football for at least another season.

The Evening Standard reported earlier this week that Eriksen has a contract offer of £150,000 per-week on the table at Spurs, but a deal isn’t close to keep the midfielder at the club.

It is believed chairman Daniel Levy would prefer to sell Erisken to Spanish giants Real Madrid rather than domestic rivals United.

A move for Eriksen, however, seems dependent on whether Paul Pogba joins Zinedine Zidane in Madrid. This would leave United funds to pull off the deal, as well as a gap in midfield which needs to be filled.

Eriksen would represent a marquee signing for United, and has proven himself to be one of the Premier League’s best midfielders at Tottenham since his move from Ajax in 2013.

However, Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes is another player the Reds are reportedly targeting, and would be a younger, and potentially cheaper alternative to the Danish international.
