Transfer news: Manchester United keen on landing this out-of-contract Tottenham star in January



Manchester United to target Christian Eriksen in the January window

The Athletic (h/t Express) claims that Manchester United will move for two targets in the winter window.

The Red Devils haven’t had a great start to the season but did pick up an important win against Leicester City at the weekend.

United have already dropped points against Southampton and lost to Crystal Palace, and the report claims that Sean Longstaff is one target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The other target for the Red Devils is Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen (h/t Express).

United keen on Eriksen

The report adds that the Manchester side have been long-time admirers of the Dane and even Sir Alex Ferguson contemplated signing Eriksen in 2012 but chose to move for Shinji Kagawa instead.

The Dane is one of the best creative players in the Premier League and is out of a contract at the end of the season. Keeping hold of the midfielder beyond next summer would be an achievement by Spurs.

However, Eriksen had spoken about taking up a new challenge at the end of the previous campaign, but a summer move did not take place.

Losing the Dane would be a major blow but we should put out all the stops to ensure he doesn’t sign for a Premier League rival.

Selling him in January makes sense as we can get a decent sum for the 27-year-old but he should be sold to a foreign club.


Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998.
