Manchester United: Erik ten Hag keen on Christian Eriksen





New Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is keen on signing Christian Eriksen for nothing this summer, according to The Daily Star.

The Lowdown: Eriksen in demand

Eriksen, who has been labeled a ‘superstar’ by Graeme Bailey, returned to the Premier League in January after signing a short-term deal with Brentford.

The 30-year-old has made seven appearances for the Bees, contributing to three goals. Brentford have won five and drew one in the six games he has started, which has resulted in six English clubs showing an interest in his services. He is out of contract at the end of June, and a move to Old Trafford to work under Ten Hag has now been mooted.

The Latest: United join the race

The Daily Star shared a story regarding Eriksen late on Saturday evening, revealing the Red Devils are now interested in the attacking midfielder.

Ten Hag believes Eriksen, who trained with him at Ajax earlier this year, will be the perfect signing to kick start a major Old Trafford rebuild.

The Verdict: Smart move?

Ralf Rangnick believes up to 10 players could arrive at the club this summer, so United chiefs need to be wise in the market.

Therefore, picking up Eriksen for free could be an extremely shrewd move. The Denmark international has contributed to 121 goals in 233 Premier League and has shown in recent months he still has he quality to star in England.

United may also be left with just Bruno Fernandes as their only senior attacking midfielder, should Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata leave when their contracts expire at the end of June, so adding Eriksen to the mix could be a wise call.
