Eriksen joined Brentford on a six-month contract in January after being released by Inter Milan, with Serie A rules stating he was not allowed to compete in the division due to his ICD (automatic defibrillator implantable). With his Bees contract earlier this month, much has been said about his next destination after repeated links with Tottenham, United and Thomas Frank men throughout June.
And after picking United as his next move, an old tweet from Liverpool icon Enrique surfaced which is sure to make the Spaniard blush. “Christian Eriksen has rejected the offer from Manchester United and prefers to either stay with Brentford or join Tottenham,” said Enrique tweeted just two weeks ago.
“Another player rejects a move to Man United this summer… Ata legooooooooooo”. Eriksen excelled in west London, with one goal and four assists in just 11 games proving he could still shine at the highest level despite suffering cardiac arrest just eight months previously.
