Manchester United: Erik ten Hag keen on Christian Eriksen -Manchester United News



New Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is keen to sign Christian Eriksen for nothing this summer, according to The Daily Star.

The Lowdown: Eriksen in demand

Eriksen, who has been called ‘Super star’ by Graeme Bailey, returned to the Premier League in January after signing a short-term contract with Brentford.

The 30-year-old made seven appearances for the Bees, contributing three goals. Brentford have won five and drawn the six games he has started, prompting six English clubs to show interest in his services. He is out of contract at the end of June and a move to Old Trafford to work under Ten Hag has now been mooted.

The Latest: United join the race

The Daily Star shared a story about Eriksen late on Saturday night, revealing the Red Devils are now interested in the attacking midfielder.

Ten Hag believes Eriksen, who trained with him at Ajax earlier this year, will be the perfect signing to kick off a major Old Trafford rebuild.

The verdict: a smart move?

Ralf Rangnick believes up to 10 players could arrive at the club this summer so United chiefs need to be market wise.

Therefore, getting Eriksen back for free could be an extremely smart move. The Danish international has contributed to 121 goals in 233 in the Premier League and has shown in recent months that he still has the quality to play in England.

United could also find themselves with just Bruno Fernandes as their sole senior attacking midfielder, should Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata leave when their contracts expire at the end of June, so adding Eriksen to the mix could be a wise move.
