Christian Eriksen’s future has been clearer than Maurcio Pochettino. In fact, it is so clear that Pochettino is sure to not like it very much. The Danish midfielder spoke about leaving Spurs during the Nations League. He also spoke about Real Madrid not making a bid for him yet, which leads us to this Man United transfer story.
Tottenham are in need of an overhaul this summer. The club hasn’t spent money for about 18 months now and a number of players are set to leave- chief amongst them is Eriksen. The Danish midfielder played 35 league games this season, scoring eight and assisting 12.
His replacements have already been speculated, with Spurs even bidding for Giovani Lo Celso with an amount that will be Spurs’ new transfer record. However, before any of the replacements could arrive, Tottenham need to find a buyer and the one available right now is Manchester United. Eriksen’s Man United transfer will not be very popular with fans if it does happen. Unlikely, as it is.
Man United transfer will keep Christian Eriksen in England
If Manchester United emerge as the sole bidders for Eriksen, Tottenham have no option but to sell given the fact that the squad needs fresh investment and his contract runs out next summer. If Spurs want to make some money on Eriksen, the time is now. So any offer is a good offer.
United would pay around £40 million if they want Tottenham’s star attacking midfielder. The North Londoners want to recoup most of what they will invest on an Eriksen replacement. Levy’s past reluctance to sell to English clubs will certainly convince United to pay up if they want him. Unless they miss out on him like Gareth Bale.
However, United need to make a bid if they really want Eriksen to move to United. They, just like Madrid haven’t done it yet.
In more than 250 appearances, the Dane has cemented himself as one of the best attacking midfielders in the league. However, his desire to leave has angered Daniel Levy. Should Tottenham sell him to United if Madrid don’t come calling after spending about £300 million this summer?
We’ll see! COYS!
