Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur target Christian Eriksen favouring London stay  

According to The Athletic (Subscription Required), Christian Eriksen is set to reject a move to Manchester United in order to stay in London amid Tottenham Hotspur interest. 

After signing a short-term deal with Brentford in January, he made a remarkable comeback, scoring once and assisting four times in 11 Premier League outings.

With Eriksen’s support, the Bees closed the season well, winning seven of the 11 games in which he appeared to achieve a 13th-place finish in their first Premier League season.

Eriksen, who is presently a free agent and has been offered a new contract by Brentford, met with manager Thomas Frank on Tuesday for dinner and a ‘nice chat,’ but is still undecided about his future, despite the club’s hopes that he would have made a decision by now.

Manchester United have made an offer to Eriksen, but it is believed that the Dane would reject such a deal as he has other plans for his future. 

According to the source, the Middelfart-born midfielder wants to stay in London and it’s a direct transfer competition between Brentford and Tottenham Hotspur to recruit him ahead of the new season.

Tottenham can also provide Eriksen with something the other two suitors cannot: Champions League football next season.

Eriksen played at Tottenham for six and a half years before transferring to Italy in 2020. In 304 games in all competitions during that period, he scored 69 goals and assisted 90.

Eriksen’s return to Tottenham will allow him to play in the Champions League once more, as well as reconnect with many of his old teammates and the opportunity to work under Antonio Conte, who won the Serie A title with Inter Milan.

The Dane will be able to stay in London if he chooses to return to N17, which seems to be a lucrative deal for both the player and the team. Now it remains to be seen what decision he makes regarding his future destination.
