David Ornstein has claimed that Manchester United have made an offer to Christian Eriksen for a no cost transfer, amid reports that Newcastle and Tottenham are also interested in the Danish star..
Eriksen, 30, joined Brentford in January as a result of his deal with Inter Milan ended. Regulations declare that he couldn’t play in Italy having an ICD fitted in his chest – which means he left the Nerazzurri on a free, joining Brentford..
He has been outstanding at Brentford, providing four assists in eleven Premier League matches as well as scoring in a 4 – 1 victory over Chelsea. Eriksen, however, will not remain with Brentford, turning down the choice to renew his deal.
Reports earlier today indicated that Newcastle have held talks for Eriksen – but that Tottenham are certain of acquiring the 115 time Denmark ace. And now Ornstein says that United made an offer to Eriksen.
Eriksen must make a decision. He could join the Spurs team in the Champions League with a manager he knows very well after winning the Cup and League double together with Inter in 2020 21. But he may not start.
As a matter of fact, he will most likely just be a part player for the Spurs, used in a rotation system. He would be earning a good deal of money at Newcastle, but he would have no involvement in European football.
If Eriksen moved to Old Trafford, Manchester United would surely upset Tottenham fans, but it could be the right move for him. He would begin for a massive club and also have Europa League football under Erik Ten Hag..
