Manchester United make offer to sign free agent Christian Eriksen

Manchester United have made an offer to sign Christian Eriksen, according to reports.

That is according to the reliable David Ornstein from The Athletic.

Ornstein writes: “Barcelona player Frenkie de Jong is believed to be the club’s top midfield priority, with United aware of the Spain side’s financial difficulties.

“But it is understood talks between United and Barcelona have some way to run and the Premier League club have other options, of which Eriksen is one.”

In a recent interview with Viaplay, Eriksen confirmed he wants to play Champions League football which could open the door for a return to Tottenham Hotspur. However, the Dane stresses that it is not essential to him for his next career move.

Eriksen said, as quoted by The Athletic: “I have different offers and options, which we are considering, and then we make a decision.

“I would love to play Champions League football again. I know how much fun it is, but it isn’t essential for me.”

The 30-year-old has snubbed the opportunity to stay at Brentford, who he joined in January before proving that he can still perform at a high level in the Premier League, despite suffering a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020.

We have already tipped Eriksen as a good potential signing for United this summer, with columnist Shaun Connolly expressing his belief that it would be an upgrade on Juan Mata, who is one of 11 players leaving the club due to his contract expiring.

It would be a shrewd bit of business to get him in on a free transfer.
