Manchester United have made an offer to sign Tottenham target Christian Eriksen, according to The Athletic.
The 30-year-old is set to become a free agent at the end of the month with the six-month contract he signed with Brentford approaching its expiry.
He impressed during his short stint with the Bees after joining the club in January, helping Thomas Frank’s side to a 13th place finish in the Premier League.

The Athletic have claimed that Erik ten Hag’s side have made an approach to sign Eriksen as they continue to rebuild ahead of the new campaign.

Spurs and United look to be the two main contenders to secure a deal for Eriksen this summer and the latter are making their position known. He would be a good fit for either side, but Spurs will need to act themselves if they are to avoid missing out altogether.
