TOP STORY: Man United to move for Eriksen from Brentford

Manchester United have a lot of problems to solve this summer and new manager Erik ten Hag has already drawn up a plan to bring Brentford Christian Erikson at the club, according to daily star.

Eriksen, 30, has impressed in the Premier League this season after suffering cardiac arrest while playing for Denmark at Euro 2020. In a remarkable comeback, the midfielder, who previously played for Ajax Amsterdam and Tottenham Hotspur before spending a year at Inter Milan, signed a short-term deal with Brentford which ends this summer.

Ten Hag’s Ajax allowed Eriksen to train with them earlier this year as he sought a contract after proving his suitability, and the Dutch manager is keen to bring him to Old Trafford on a transfer free when his contract expires.

Tottenham are also keen to bring Eriksen back to the club as he has managed one goal and three assists in seven games so far, while Brentford are also hoping they can persuade him to stay.

Bee boss Thomas Frank said Sky after Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Spurs: “I’d like to say I’m confident, I’m very positive and very much hope he stays but it will be a decision at the end of the season.

“I’ll do what I can but it’s Christian, where it’s like everything if you decide to go to one club or another, you buy this house or another house, you take this job or another job. There have to be pros and cons and I always say if you make an eight-two decision, where you have eight pros and two cons, then you are in a good position.

“I hope Christian makes the right choice for him and his family and I really hope it’s us.”
