Manchester United have joined the race to sign Tottenham-linked Christian Eriksen, with his Brentford contract set to expire this summer, according to the Mirror. 

The 30-year-old made a stunning return to football after suffering a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 last year, flourishing for the Bees who signed him on a six-month contract in January. 

His displays were vital in easing Brentford into a comfortable 13th place finish in the Premier League, although they have now attracted plenty of interest from suitors across the division. 

Tottenham are reportedly interested in potentially re-signing the Denmark international which would also see him reunited with Antonio Conte after their days at Inter Milan (90min). 

But the Mirror have claimed Eriksen is now being targeted by United, with new manager Erik ten Hag keen on stretching his summer budget by securing a free transfer. 

The report also mentions Everton as an interested party, while the Dane will also allegedly hold a meeting with Brentford to discuss his future (Fabrizio Romano).

The Dutch coach has reportedly been impressed with Eriksen’s work at Brentford and could now move for him as part of the impending rebuild at Old Trafford. 

Ten Hag has been acquainted with Eriksen before after allowing him to train with his Ajax squad earlier this year ahead to build up fitness ahead of his return to action (BBC Sport).  

Spurs Web Opinion 

Eriksen’s potential availability this summer will have plenty of clubs chasing after him, particularly as he can offer them immense value on a free transfer. 

His displays for Brentford showed he is still more than good enough to be playing at a top side and he could fit in at United with gaps emerging in their squad. 

Spurs could also use him as they need a bit more creativity in midfield and they may be able to attract him over United with the lure of Champions League football next season.
