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).

Real Madrid have been heavily linked with a move for the 27-year-old over recent weeks (Daily Star), however, they could face competition from Manchester United (Evening Standard).

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.

Opinion

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.

  1. Total nonsense Alex. If you are going to write about Spurs and their players; it would behoove you to get some facts before you report your news or express your opinion. No “interest” in anyone expressed by Man U can be considered legit until it is actually tabled. It is a Woodward tactic to “express interest” in any and every available player .

  2. This move would be a dream for Spurs. We could obtain transfer funds and not only off load the highly overrated Dane but also saddle a rival club with baggage.

    it would be a fantastic day.
