Manchester United have offered a deal to Denmark international midfielder Christian Eriksen, The Athletic has confirmed.
The 30 year old playmaker is available to sign on a free transfer as his Brentford contract expires on June 30.
Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest at last summer’s European Championship and he departed Inter Milan following that incident, but he made his comeback to football this year.
Christian Eriksen signed a six-month deal with Brentford in January, joining fellow countryman Thomas Frank in London.
The playmaker contributed one goal and four assists in 11 appearances for Brentford, and he proved that he retained his talent.
Christian Eriksen has confirmed he will not rush a decision on his future this summer after receiving a deal from Manchester United.
He is also reportedly wanted by Brentford, Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United.
“No, and they know that too,” Eriksen told reporters, as per Bold.dk.
“There are many criteria and many different things inside such a decision. Sometimes it goes fast in football, other times a little slower.
“You are not in control of it yourself. I have to make the best decision and not rush anything through.
“My phone stays on, but I also know my agent well enough to know that he only calls if there’s something exciting.”
Eriksen has also admitted he’s considering the offer from Manchester United.
Eriksen, speaking to Viaplay, said: “I have different offers and options, which we are considering, and then we make a decision.
“I would love to play Champions League football again. I know how much fun it is, but it isn’t essential for me.”
Signing Barcelona midfielder and Dutch international midfielder Frenkie de Jong remains Manchester United’s top midfield priority.
However, with Barcelona holding out for €100million, Manchester United have now made the move to sign Christian Eriksen, who is available for free.
Manchester United will be hoping the good relationship between Christian Eriksen and Ten Hag will convince the playmaker to join Manchester United.
