After various failed attempts to sign Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen last season, Manchester United are reportedly trying to bring him to the Old Trafford yet again.
Despite pursuing the playmaker relentlessly last summer, Manchester United were not able to secure his signing, however, with him denying to sign a new contract extension, it is highly likely that the new Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho will look to cash him in as much as he can.
If Spurs are unable to sell the creative midfielder in January, they will be forced to release the player for free, a situation they will never want to be in.
According to El Desmarque, United chief Ed Woodward has prepared a bid worth £20.5m for Eriksen, however, it seems to be irrelevant at the moment.
The Spanish publication reports Eriksen is in no mood to stay in the English Premier League is looking for a move to Real Madrid.
However, the equation isn’t as easy as it seems. Real Madrid are reportedly interested in Paul Pogba and would prefer to sign him over Christian Eriksen any day. Now that means if Real Madrid succeed in signing Pogba, Eriksen will be left with no option but to consider Manchester United offer. A new interesting saga seems to be evolving and we will be keeping a close eye on it.
Mourinho has indicated that Eriksen has already decided on his next move.
I know his future,” the Tottenham boss told the press after the Boxing Day win over Brighton.
“Or I think I know his future. His communication with me is completely open and honest and we trust each other.
“I know his future but I’m not going to be the one to speak about his future.
“Have to him to speak about his future, when he makes the decision to speak about his future. Not me.”
Despite a mixed start to the season, United are expected to heavily back Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the upcoming transfer window.
