Manchester United have made an offer to Christian Eriksen as the Denmark international weighs up his options this summer.

Christian Eriksen joined Premier League side Brentford in January on a short-term contract until the end of the season after his Inter Milan contract was cancelled after a cardiac arrest during the Euros last summer.

Christian Eriksen impressed on his return to action, helping Brentford win seven of the 11 matches he appeared in as they finished 13th in their first season in the Premier League.

He scored once and provided 4 assists in his 11 appearances for Thomas Frank’s side.

Eriksen will be available as a free agent when his contract at Brentford officially expires on June 30 and is attracting interest from several clubs including Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United.

The Athletic confirmed this week that Manchester United have now made an offer to the 30 year old.

The details of Manchester United’s offer to Christian Eriksen has now emerged.

According to transfer expert Ekrem Konur, Manchester United offered Christian Eriksen a deal structured for a one-year period with the option to trigger a second.

Despite offering Eriksen a deal to join Manchester United, it is believed it will have no impact on Manchester United’s interest in signing Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag wants to sign two midfielders this summer and sees Christian Eriksen as a different type of midfielder to De Jong.

After receiving an offer from Manchester United, Eriksen has confirmed he will not rush a decision on his future this summer.

“No, and they know that too,” Eriksen told reporters, as per

“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.”
