Manchester United are considering going back in for Tottenham star Christian Eriksen, according to the Independent.
Eriksen has been linked with United in the past, but the Red Devils are now said to be target Juventus forward Paulo Dybala and Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes, two players who are also reportedly on Spurs’ shortlist.
Talk of Fernandes joining Tottenham is particularly strong, although reports suggest Real Madrid have entered the race to sign the Portugal international. And with United struggling to attain their targets, it looks like they could revive their interest in Eriksen.
The Independent claims a transfer from Spurs to United for Eriksen depends on two factors: whether Dybala moves to Old Trafford, and whether Eriksen is willing to play Europa League football next season.
Eriksen has just one year left on his Tottenham contract and is likely to make a much bigger salary at United, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will not be playing in the Champions League next term – something Spurs will be doing.
Tottenham could sell Eriksen to a foreign club after the English transfer window closes next week, so they are in no rush to accept any offer from United.
