Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for the vast majority of the transfer window but still finds himself in North London (AS).
According to report in the Daily Mail yesterday, Manchester United are now trying to complete a deal for Eriksen before the transfer deadline closes on Thursday at 5pm.
The report claims that Tottenham are keen to offload Eriksen this summer as they want to prevent the possibility of him leaving for free next summer, with his contract now having less than twelve months to run.
It is suggested that the Danish international’s representatives are confident of getting a deal over the line and that United will offer around £65 million for the 27-year-old.
Some Spurs fans took to social media and said that they will be annoyed with Eriksen if he moves to United as that will prove that he was only after more money instead of trophies considering the fact that the Old Trafford outfit will play in the Europa League this season.
Here’s how some fans reacted to the news:
So he doesn’t want a step up he just wants more money

Strengthening a rival and replacing with someone of less quality
It needs to be bruno + lo celso not one or the other

That would piss me off. Barca and Madrid one thing, but moving for Europa league after claiming he wanted to play at the “elite level” is another.

Be very disappointing if we were to lose Eriksen to Utd but we’re not really in a position to decide where he goes. If he doesn’t fancy being here anymore, he’s free to go. We must bring Lo Celso & Fernandes in to replace him – that’s how much of a void he’ll leave behind.

If Eriksen goes to Man United I will lose all respect for him.
If “I want a new challenge” means playing Europa league football for a worse manager in a worse team then that’s that for me.
Will just go to show it’s all amount money. Best to get rid of a bad egg.

Spurs Web Opinion
If Eriksen doesn’t want to be at the club, then there is no point in keeping him. Tottenham will be better of adding someone like Lo Celso or Fernandes who want to play for the club. We at Spurs Web expect only one of Lo Celso or Fernandes to arrive before the deadline.
