According to the London Evening Standard, Manchester United will consider a move for Tottenham Hotspur’s Christian Eriksen should Paul Pogba leave Old Trafford during this summer’s transfer window.
Pogba’s future at Old Trafford is far from secure and it would not be a surprise if United decided to sell the Frenchman for big money ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.
According to the London Evening Standard, should Pogba move on then the Red Devils could target Eriksen – out of contract at Spurs next June.
However, it seems that the majority of Tottenham fans are not overly concerned by the transfer report.
Indeed, United will not be able to offer Champions League football next season and many of the Spurs supporters feel that Eriksen would actually be making a step down if he moved to Old Trafford this summer.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the London club’s fans can be seen below:

He’d be better staying at Spurs than go to United, which is a step down these days.

Please explain why Eriksen says he wants a better challenge, only to go for a team that isn’t in the Champions league or finishing top 4. Hmmm ?
