Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur were engaged in an intense battle for the signature of world-class attacking midfielder, Christian Eriksen, but the Red Devils are now favourites to land the Dane after Spurs switched their focus to other targets. Fabrizio Romano has dropped hints as to where Eriksen could be playing next season, after tweeting: “Christian Eriksen will make a decision on his future club soon. Manchester United have confirmed their interest to his agent, while Brentford are still in the race. Tottenham, now focused on right back, centre back and then striker after three signings completed.”

Fan account United Cloud then got in touch with Romano with regards to the ambiguity of the tweet, receiving clarification that Eriksen “isn’t a priority” for Spurs.

Manchester United Favourites to sign Christian Eriksen as Tottenham focus elsewhere

Manchester United Midfield Dilemma

Manchester United are set to lose key midfielders this summer and fans will see much change come August. Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard are all set to leave the club in the near future, meaning links to reinforcements are no surprise. Frenkie de Jong remains Manchester United’s number one transfer target. The Dutchman is expected to leave Barcelona and many believe he will reunite with former boss Erik ten Hag as the Red Devils are currently the side with the strongest interest in him.
United will still need extra midfield cover and are expected to give James Garner a go in pre-season after he spent a successful year on loan at Nottingham Forest. The 21-year-old played a vital role in a midfield pivot to help Forest achieve Premier League promotion and it is no wonder that they would like him back for their first season back in England’s top division.
Bruno Fernandes struggled for form, like the rest of his teammates, during the season. If Christian Eriksen were to arrive it would provide healthy competition for Manchester United’s Portuguese Magnifico. The Dane however will want to be more than competition at his new club and is good enough to have regular Premier League minutes next season, as he proved at Brentford.

Brentford Still in With a Shout for Christian Eriksen

Brentford won 7 of the 11 games they played when Eriksen featured, dragging them from a potential relegation battle to a healthy 13th place finish in their first season in England’s top division. Brentford have tabled a serious offer for the Dane, who is living and settled in London already and may tempt him to stay another season.
The 30-year-old has a decision to make on where he will play football next season. It seems that place will be Manchester United or Brentford, but with the success Tottenham’s business so far this summer, it wouldn’t be entirely shocking if the Dane ends up in North London.
