The race to sign Christian Eriksen narrows down to two Premier League clubs

It’s almost time for Christian Eriksen to decide on his future.

According to Sky Sports, the choice is now between Brentford and Manchester United, which would be a no brainer for most footballers.

The 30-year-old previously attracted interest from former club Tottenham Hotspur, but they’ve now left the room and appear to be targeting other players this summer. Eriksen made over 300 appearances for the Lilywhites between 2013 to 2020.

However, both Brentford and United have tabled offers for the Denmark international, so we are now playing the waiting game.

The Metro claims that the Dane is deliberately delaying the decision to choose his next destination because he supposedly wants to see how United perform in the transfer window before finally deciding what move would be bets for his career.

In a recent interview with Viaplay, as per Sports Mole, Eriksen said: “There are many criteria and many different things inside such a decision. Sometimes it goes fast in football, other times a little slower. I have to make the best decision and not rush anything through.

“I have different offers and options, which we are considering, and then we make a decision.”

Surely a move to Old Trafford is more appealing and financially attractive?

Maybe Eriksen enjoys life in London, and he’s settled back there since returning to the city in January.

I mean, Manchester is a great city too!

  1. I absolutely love the ‘surely’ and ‘no brainer’ attachments to Man United, the most dysfunctional ‘big’ team outside of Barcelona (although Barcelona seems to have some sort of plan now, at least). You have absolutely nobody dying to join you and seemingly everyone getting the funk out as soon as it becomes possible. Lingard didn’t even want to speak to Ten Haag, that’s how strongly he felt about his time being utterly wasted in last couple of years. You lost him and Pogba for free because people at the helm keep changing and nobody knows who want’s to keep who and in the end, oh shit, contract is up and the guy is going (to be fair, nobody will miss Pogba but you could get few quid for him last year at least). You destroyed confidence and form of Rashford and Martial too so nobody want’s to touch them them now that you would actually entertain selling. Man Unt is a joke to the footballing world. Nobody cares about the fact you won a lot years ago. Other people are winning NOW. And they pay money too. While offering surroundings not resembling of a nut house. And, no, Manchester (albeit quite alrite) is nowhere near as cool to live in as London. As for Brentford – the upward trajectory of the past 10 or so years has not reached it peak yet so why not be part of it in your twilight? ‘Surely’ (pun intended) being part of potentially getting them into something like Europa Conference League (before you start choking – Burnley played in Europa League so this is ABSOLUTELY possible for Brentford) is cooler than just about getting into Europa League with Man U? And, guess what, you still earn six figures at Brentford, you live in the city you and your family want to live in and you are pretty much in a Little Copenhagen with all the Danes there. Plus you are a guaranteed started ahead of the World Cup and at United? Perhaps, perhaps not. The guy nearly died a year ago and people somehow try to ignore the idea that ‘being in a good place’ may just be what someone like this will want. United isn’t a ‘good place’ right now and has piss poor record in trying to do something about that.
