Report: Christian Eriksen could be set for Premier League stay

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.


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.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  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.
