Manchester United could secure a transfer deal for Christian Eriksen during the current summer transfer window.
In a recent Twitter post from Sky Sports journalist Dharmesh Sheth, he had this to say on the matter.
He said: “Manchester United feel deal with Christian Eriksen is possible after initial contact. Ultimate decision rests with player – he has other offers.”
After a spell with Inter Milan, the Denmark international joined Brentford having left Italy as a result of Serie A rules not allowing him to play with an ICD that he was fitted with after his cardiac arrest during Euro 2020.
In his 11 Premier League appearances with the Bees, the 30-year-old scored one goal and delivered four assists.
The news that United are positive about concluding a deal for the Dane is likely to serve as great news for supporters who will undoubtedly be keen to see him pen terms at Old Trafford.
After all, this is one of the most graceful players currently in the Premier League and his underlying stats tell the story of a marvellous player, one who could light up Erik ten Hag’s new side.
He ended the season with a higher rate of shot-creating actions per 90 minutes (5.08) than any other player in the Brentford squad to make more than one appearance in the league while delivering 30 crosses as his magical creativity stood out.
In fact, despite only joining the squad in the winter transfer window, the former Spurs man ended the campaign with a higher performance rating (7.37/10) than any other player at the club according to WhoScored.
Taking this into account, it’s safe to say that Eriksen clearly still has what it takes to be a dangerous figure in the league and play at a high level, which is why United will be after him.
With Sheth claiming that the decision of where he’ll be playing next season will ultimately be down to Eriksen, the United hierarchy and the fans will have to hope that they have done enough to convince the midfield maestro to sign a deal with them.
