Sensational news from England reports that Manchester United have emerged as favourites to sign Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen.
The Denmark international has been linked with a move to Spanish side Real Madrid in recent weeks but reports suggest he could instead switch to Manchester United. The 27-year-old has one year left on his contract and has refused to sign a new deal with Tottenham.
It is widely reported that Tottenham are willing to cash in on the player and have set an asking price of £100million on the player. This fee appears to be a major stumbling block for Real Madrid and Manchester United who are reportedly circling for his signature this summer.
Portuguese tabloid O Jogo reports that Eriksen is closing in on a move to United with negotiations ongoing between the player and the club. It is understood that if Manchester United completes the move for Eriksen, it would pave the way for Tottenham to sign Sporting Lisbon ace Bruno Fernandes.
Eriksen had earlier revealed his desire to leave Spurs in the summer in a recent interview where he spoke of his desire to begin a new challenge.
“I feel that I am at a stage of my career where I would like to try something new.
“I have the deepest respect for everything that is happening at Tottenham and it would not be something negative to stay. But I have also said that I would like to try something new.
“I hope that something will be decided this summer. That is the plan.
Eriksen is considered as one of the top elite midfielders in Europe and would be a great addition to the United midfield. He is a renowned playmaker and set piece expert with vast experience in the Premier League.
