Christian Eriksen is on Manchester United’s transfer list. The player that could be utilized in bringing back the club’s glory days is the belief.
Manchester United target Christian Eriksen
The Dane came into consideration when it seemed impossible for United to get their hands on Barcelona midfielder Frenkie De Jong. Eriksen will end up a free agent once his contract with his present club Brentford F.C comes to a close on the 30th of June.
Unable to reach their full potential, players like Edinson Cavani and Paul Pogba have left Old Trafford this season. As a replacement for the midfielders, United sees Eriksen as the right choice to control the team’s midfield for next season. Erik Ten Hag, the new Manchester United manager is a major fan of Eriksen, as a result, the English giants have made a contract offer.
The Dane told reporters that it would be an amazing experience to play in the Champions League again. However, Eriksen said that would be a star too far to reach and said he would be happy to just play football.
“I have different offers and options, which we are considering, and then we make a decision,”
Christian Eriksen told Viaplay.
“Would love to play Champions League football again. I know how much fun it is, but it isn’t essential for me,”
Brentford on releasing Christian Eriksen
Brentford has no intentions of letting the 30-year-old go. However, the midfielder’s strong performances have persuaded several interested parties that he is capable of handling the demands of top-flight football.
Eriksen had a big impact on the Bees helping them finish 13th in their maiden season in the EPL. In addition, he registered 4 goals and 11 assists and led his team to victory on 7 of those occasions.
Other clubs interested in Christian Eriksen
Everton seems to be the side from the Premier League who are cashing all in for the Dane. Having lost James Rodriguez and Digne, the Toffees didn’t seem satisfied with Rafa Benitez’s intentions.
Frank Lampard, the present Everton manager is currently on the lookout for someone with a creative playmaking game. Christian Eriksen fulfills all of the requirements which have him wanted by the Black Watch. Everton must act quickly if they want to lure Eriksen to Goodison Park.
Tottenham Hotspur, Eriksen’s old club, will compete in the Championship next season and is rumored to be interested. However, the Dane has ties to Ajax, having trained with the Netherland’s reserves and initially joined Brentford to improve his fitness.
Should Eriksen join United this summer?
Having claimed that playing in the Champions League isn’t his priority, he can join United. However, the reds won’t play in the UCL next year. Above all, this isn’t a hurdle for Eriksen to join the red side of Manchester. The Red Devils in fact tried to lure him into the Old Trafford back in 2019. But eventually, Eriksen prioritized Inter Milan over the English legends.
In conclusion, Manchester United has been desperate to sign Christian Eriksen. In addition, playing with stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, David De Gea, and Bruno Fernandez would surely be an experience worth remembering.
