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.



  1. Levy will do all in his power (should Eriksen really wish to leave this great Spurs project) to ensure
    that the Dane does NOT go to another PL club! And if he does (go to another PL club) then certainly for not less than £90m, despite having only one year left on his contract.
    I also think Levy knows now that he can’t delay the inevitable on paying ALL his key players the best possible money if we are to continue our progression; so perhaps we can optimistically expect both Eriksen AND Toby to sign new and rewarding contracts.
