Reliable transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has confirmed Manchester United have offered a deal to Denmark international midfielder Christian Eriksen.

Christian Eriksen is a free agent after his contract with Brentford expired this summer.

He joined the Premier League side on a short-term deal until the end of the season in January.

Fabrizio Romano also revealed the four clubs that have offered to sign Eriksen this summer.

Fabrizio Romano told Caught Offside: “A lot has been written about Christian Eriksen in the last few days, some of which is premature: the reality is that Eriksen’s agent has had discussions with four clubs.

“Leicester held talks with his representatives in April, while Manchester United and Tottenham have explored this possibility in the past two weeks, but there is still no final agreement.

“Eriksen is taking his time. The fourth club is Brentford, who have submitted a proposal, and who are awaiting an answer from the player.

“Contrary to what others have reported, my understanding is that he has not yet rejected a deal to stay at Brentford.

“His return to football has been a great story, and wouldn’t it be even more romantic if he stayed at the club who gave him his first chance to play again after that horrific moment at Euro 2020?

“For now, everyone is still waiting for feedback from Eriksen, but Leicester are more pessimistic despite Brendan Rodgers being a big fan of the Danish midfielder.

“Whether this ends up being good news for United, Spurs, or Brentford remains to be seen.”

Eriksen has also confirmed he’s considering the different offers but admitted he would love Champions League football, which slightly gives Tottenham Hotspur an advantage.

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.”
