Incoming rival boss wants to beat Tottenham in the race for 30-year-old star

Manchester United have joined the race to sign Tottenham Hotspur target Christian Eriksen

According to the Mirror, Manchester United have entered the hunt to recruit Tottenham Hotspur target, Christian Eriksen, following his sensational comeback to the Premier League with Brentford.

Erik ten Hag, the new manager of Manchester United, is on the lookout for midfield reinforcements and is thought to be ready to stretch his budget as far as possible as he plans to bring in new players this summer. After his outstanding performances with the Bees since January, Eriksen is now being touted as a possible transfer target for the Red Devils.

After suffering a cardiac arrest while playing for Denmark at the UEFA Euros over a year ago, the 30-year-old Dane was released by Inter Milan and had to be equipped with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator.

Tottenham are also interested in bringing Eriksen back to N17. With his history at the club and with Conte, as well as the bargain aspect of the agreement, he checks several boxes.

Conte trained the Danish sensation at Inter Milan. In their second season together, the pair even won the Serie A title. Eriksen previously spent seven years at Tottenham, and the club’s Champions League place next season might draw him away from United, who will compete in the Europa League.

Following qualification for Europe’s top tournament, Antonio Conte would be pursuing a number of moves this summer, with a deal for Eriksen’s former Inter colleague, Ivan Perisic already agreed.

We don’t have any attacking midfielders in our ranks since Dele Alli left in January, which has caused us problems on multiple occasions. Even if Alli stayed at the club, he has consistently underperformed.

Eriksen, on the other hand, is a true creative outlet, and his passing skill is among the finest in the league. We’ve failed to break down opposing defences and even create opportunities at times. As a result, there were occasions when Spurs, despite all their attacking outlets, struggled to create clear-cut chances in important games.

With his enormous talent, Eriksen’s acquisition might alleviate that problem, but whether or not an agreement can be struck remains to be seen. United’s involvement in the contest may complicate things, but in the end, the Danish star’s decision will be the most important.
