According to reports, Manchester United are interested in signing Christian Eriksen in January. The Red Devils are said to be plotting a raid for the 27-year-old when the winter transfer window flings open.
Eriksen revealed that he was looking out for a new challenge this summer. However, with a move failing to materialise, the Dane will see out another six months in the English capital.
United are looking to add creativity in their midfield and Solskjaer views Eriksen as the ideal man to fit in. They also held talks with the 27-year-old in the closing days of the window, but were waived off after knowing that he preferred a move to Spain. Nonetheless, United’s interest did flatter the player.
Eriksen’s contract will expire next year and Spurs are willing to cash in on him to avoid losing him for free next summer.
Recently, he expressed how difficult it was to decide on his future.
He confessed: “I wish I could decide just like in Football Manager, but unfortunately I can’t.”
“For me it’s not hard to clear my head. I don’t read much of what is written.’
“And now I have been involved for many years, where there have been many rumours every year.”
“But it’s clear that it’s been a little more rife this year because my contract is about to expire. There has been a lot said about me.”
“I should have been looking at houses in Madrid [according to the speculation], but I have to be honest and say that all that writing is not something that bothers me. At all.”
