Manchester United are keeping a close eye on Brenford’s January signing Christian Eriksen, according to a report.
The Danish midfielder returned to the Premier League on a 6-month deal after he was let go by Inter Milan due to his medical condition.
Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 while playing against Finland in the group stages of the tournament. The 30-year-old had to have an ICD implanted, which is a device that can prevent fatal cardiac arrests with a jolt to restore the heart back to its normal rhythm.
But he made a remarkable comeback this season and scored at the weekend in Brentford’s 4-1 win over Chelsea.
Meanwhile, United are trying to plan for next season and signing a midfielder or two should be the club’s priority.
According to the Daily Mail, United have been monitoring the situation of Eriksen, who will be out of contract in the summer and will be available to sign as a free agent.
His former club Tottenham Hotspur have been mentioned as another possible destination for the Dane.
United wouldn’t be signing a spring chicken in Eriksen by any means, but the squad will get trimmed in the summer and signing a free agent or two wouldn’t be the worst idea, if the players in question fit the right profile.
It could be a good move to sign Eriksen with Juan Mata’s contract expiring in the summer.
