Manchester United offer for Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen

Manchester United have reportedly made an offer to sign Real Madrid target Christian Eriksen in January, report Diario AS.

It is claimed that United have made a €23.5m (£20m) offer for the Denmark international in January, although the player is still keeping his options open with Madrid and Juventus also in the hunt.

The Dane is out of contract at the North London club in the summer of 2020 and is free to talk to other clubs from January.

“We are honestly not scared to trade with our rivals,” Spurs supremo Daniel Levy explained to the London Evening Standard.

“My view is really simple. For a player to sign a new contract, not only have the conditions got to be right but the player has got to want to do it. It is up to those players whether they want to stay at Tottenham and we'll see.”

It is claimed that Los Blancos were interested in the player in 2018 but the valuation of €150m meant their interest was discontinued, but this summer Eriksen was said to be priced below €70m, due to his contractual situation.

Cadena Cope have previously stated that Eriksen is an option but his transfer would be with a view to the 2020/21 campaign, and he will only be signed in January should a player leave the club.

A report in Diario AS in June claimed that there was a ‘verbal agreement’ between the former Ajax playmaker and Madrid.
