So the Christian Eriksen transfer saga continues to rumble on. Despite the transfer window officially slamming shut across Europe earlier this week, rumours of potential exits and signings haven’t stopped.
Eriksen was the subject of intense transfer speculation over the course of the summer, and there were suggestions Manchester United were contemplating making a late bid for the Denmark international.
Despite a move failing to materialise, The Daily Mail claim the Red Devils are set to make a bid for the 27-year-old in January after seeing Eriksen fail to join Real Madrid.
After hearing the news the club could be set for a winter swoop for the Tottenham star, United fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts about the matter.
Many supporters of the Manchester side hailed the Dane for his proven qualities, and insisted that quite frankly, “anyone is a massive improvement on (Jesse) Lingard”.
Others however urged the Red Devils to simply move on to other transfer targets, and pointed back to reports that he had supposedly turned down the chance to move to Old Trafford this summer.
Check out some of the mixed reaction of United fans below:
