Manchester United are plotting a move for Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Christian Eriksen, according to the London Evening Standard.
Earlier this week, we relayed a report that claimed Real Madrid have cooled their interest in Eriksen, instead prioritising moves for Eden Hazard and Paul Pogba.
Pogba’s future could play a key role in that of Eriksen as United will be looking for a replacement if the Frenchman leaves for Madrid.
And the Evening Standard suggests Eriksen has been identified as a central figure in a summer rebuild at Old Trafford.
It is believed Spurs will demand more than £60 million for the Dane is he fails to sign a new contract, although there are said to be encouraging signs about fresh terms being agreed.
Tottenham are apparently willing to double Eriksen’s £70,000-a-week wages, but United would probably be able to offer him an ever bigger salary.
Eriksen’s agent could use United’s interest as leverage and attempt to get his client a better offer from Spurs.
It all could come down to whether Daniel Levy believes the 27-year-old is worth it.
