Fabrizio Romano confirms Man Utd have scheduled medical for midfield signing

Manchester United have shifted gears in the transfer market and more than one signing is expected before they leave for their pre-season tour on Friday.

Tyrell Malacia will become Erik ten Hag’s first signing at the club, with the 22-year-old confirming the move earlier on Tuesday in an interview.

And now, it has emerged that Christian Eriksen is likely to become the second signing of the summer after accepting a three-year contract proposal from the club.

Eriksen is a free agent after leaving Brentford, having impressed in his brief stint at the London club following his release from Inter Milan.

Ten Hag will hope to have the Danish international on the plane to Thailand on Friday and that is becoming increasingly likely after journalist and transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano confirmed that a medical has already been scheduled.

As per the report, the 30-year-old will sign a three-year deal after undergoing his medical. Furthermore, he is believed to have held talks with Ten Hag, with those discussions described as a ‘key factor’.

In another boost to Ten Hag’s hopes of including fresh faces on the trip to Thailand, Romano adds that the club is working to announce the former Tottenham star and Malacia’s arrivals this week.

SN’s verdict…
Eriksen is definitely shrewd piece of business from United, who will see him as an upgrade on the departing Juan Mata. Eriksen is likely to play a bigger role, however.

There were several senior departures in midfield this summer and United’s transfer targets point to a willingness to strengthen that area more than any other.

Eriksen was not short of offers this summer and after deciding to sign for United, it’s fair to assume that he has been promised a chance to feature regularly in the side.

  1. One of last season’s problems was that the manager couldn’t trust players to put in a shift. OK, in that case, the manager was probably part of the problem, but when he put out a side, and can’t be ars**ness spread through it like an STD on Love Island, it was never going to work.

    From that point of view, change – almost ay change – is positive, provided new players have a work ethic

    If Christiano does go, we are looking desperately light up top, though, so an additional body up front seems like a requirement.

  2. Looks like after a long delay, the jigsaw pieces are finally falling in to place to form a really strategic picture in Manchester United’s transfer business.
    If all goes well and the new players can complement to make a really strong team, to at the least, give a good challenge to the top 3 teams of the last and the near past 8 seasons. Unlike the early capitulation of last season.

  3. I can’t understand why De Jong is hesitant to join United. He isn’t exactly a favourite at Barca, but would be an instant star before he kicked a ball at Old Trafford. United are finally lining up to be a force again. Maybe or not in the top four, but certainly on the right track to be an exciting team that will be a threat in two years under Ten Hag. This year, United certainly will be a contender for the European League Cup and a true motivator for things to come.

  4. For now no Ronaldo there’s was no Manchester united so we need two best strikers an four additional new player

  5. Ronaldo is pushing himself out of united,please they should let him go and look for altanetive!!
