Christian Eriksen could find himself playing in the Premier League next season with Manchester United said to be considering a move for the Tottenham Hotspur playmaker.
Eriksen told Danish media earlier this week that he wants to leave North London to seek a new challenge after six seasons at the club (Ekstra Bladet).
The Old Trafford outfit have identified Eriksen as a potential replacement for Paul Pogba, who has also been the subject of transfer talk with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Eriksen has made over 250 appearances for Spurs and since his debut Premier League season in 2013-14, the Dane ranks first in the competition for chances created (547), assists (60), goals from outside the box (22) and direct free-kick goals (7).
Spurs would certainly have a job on their hands to fill the void left by Eriksen unless they are willing to break the bank for a player with proven quality.
While United are certainly a big club and can offer wages far higher than what Daniel Levy is prepared to provide in N17, it would be a strange switch for Eriksen if he wishes to play Europa League football next season.
