Liverpool told to rival United for free agent Christian Eriksen

Manchester United are waiting on Christian Eriksen’s decision after making the midfielder an offer.

The Denmark international is set to become a free agent when his Brentford contract expires, although manager Thomas Frank is still hopeful that the 30-year-old will remain next season after meeting with the midfielder for dinner recently.

It is believed Tottenham have distanced themselves from a potential swoop for their former midfield star.

Liverpool haven’t been linked with a move for Eriksen but former full-back Jose Enrique thinks he would be a shrewd signing for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Speaking on Instagram Live, Enrique said: “Christian Eriksen is another interesting player that could be Liverpool’s solution to our midfield and spending nothing because he is a free agent.

“He is a short-term solution but then we can wait for Jude Bellingham next season.

“He will play if he deserves to play like everyone else. Eriksen is a top player and I believe he can compete for a starting spot in our XI. The season is very long.

“He is that kind of player, like Thiago Alcantara, but maybe a little bit more offensive. But Thiago is our magician.”
