Manchester United have offered Denmark international Christian Eriksen a two-year deal to join the club this summer.

Manchester United offered Christian Eriksen a one year contract with an option to extend for another year.

The wages offered to the Denmark playmaker is yet to be revealed.

Manchester United have received huge encouragement in the pursuit of Eriksen with the midfielder wanting to stay in the Premier League, according to Metro UK.

Eriksen has offers from outside of England but would prefer to remain playing in the Premier League next term.

The Dane, 30, is available on a free transfer this summer after his six-month deal with Brentford ended.

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is a huge admirer of Eriksen and believes the 30 year old midfielder will add creativity to Manchester United’s midfield.

It is believed Manchester United’s pursuit of Eriksen will not affect the club’s pursuit of Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

Manchester United boss Ten Hag believes both players aren’t similar and can play in his midfield.

Eriksen’s former club Tottenham Hotspur have also offered a contract to the Denmark international.

Eriksen spent over six seasons at Spurs before leaving to join Inter Milan and played a major part in the north London club’s rise under Mauricio Pochettino.

During his time with Spurs, he made over 200 appearances in the Premier League and scored 51 goals.

With Tottenham Hotspur playing Champions League football, Antonio Conte’s side could have a slight edge over Manchester United in the race to sign Eriksen.

Speaking this week about his future, Eriksen said via 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.”
