Juventus and Manchester United remain interested in Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen, according to reports. But could that interest have an effect on Spurs’ pursuit of Paulo Dybala?
Eriksen has just one year remaining on his contract and has admitted he may seek a new challenge elsewhere this season. However, there has also been talk he could sign a new deal at Tottenham after failing to seal a move to Real Madrid, which had been expected.
The Daily Mail claims Manchester United are considering an offer for Eriksen, although it’s unclear how much Spurs will want for the Dane. Meanwhile, Italian outlet Calcio Mercato believes Eriksen is among a list of Juventus targets as Maurizio Sarri aims to strengthen his midfield.
Spurs and United have been strongly linked with Paulo Dybala. However, the Argentinian is reportedly eager to stay at Juventus. If the Italian champions sign Eriksen, though, Dybala may be forced to leave to play more first-team football elsewhere.
The same thing could happen if United somehow lure Eriksen to Old Trafford; the Red Devils would surely end their interest in Dybala, giving Tottenham a free run at him. That said, if he wants to stay at Juventus then Spurs will just have to give up and look at other possibilities.
