Manchester United offered Christian Eriksen a very lucrative two year contract to join the club, according to Daily Mail.

The 30 year old Denmark international is currently on holiday and will decide his next move once he returns from his holiday.

The Dane is weighing up contract offers from Brentford and Manchester United.

While both proposals from Manchester United and Brentford are believed to be very good, Manchester United’s offer is more financially lucrative.

Whichever club he chooses, Eriksen is believed to want regular first-team football to ensure he secures a spot for Denmark at the Qatar World Cup in November.

Money is reportedly not Eriksen’s primary concern with the midfielder more concerned about playing time.

Eriksen is unlikely to return to former club Tottenham Hotspur after Antonio Conte’s side strengthened their midfield with the addition of Brighton’s Yves Bissouma for £25million. 

The chance to work with Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag appeals to Eriksen but his family reportedly have concerns about moving up to the north-west from London.

Eriksen worked with Ten Hag when he trained with Ajax after his Inter Milan contract was terminated last year.

Eriksen had his Inter Milan contract terminated last year after he suffered a cardiac arrest during the Euros while playing for Denmark.

Players in Italy are not allowed to wear ICD devices but with less strict rules in England, Eriksen returned to Premier League in January on a six-month contract with Brentford.

The 30 year old impressed in his 11 Premier League appearances this season, scoring one goal and providing four assists to help Brentford avoid relegation.

West Ham and Everton are also interested in signing Eriksen as a free agent this summer but he is set to choose between Manchester United and Brentford.

Meanwhile, Brentford boss Thomas Frank has revealed he has an agreement with Eriksen that the midfielder will inform him of his decision before he makes it public.

“I coached Eriksen in the youth ranks in Denmark,” Frank said.

“In October, my son called me: ‘Dad, why don’t you contact Christian? He has to play football again.’ I called Eriksen in December and asked him if he would consider playing football again at Brentford and he replied: ‘Funny thing is I thought of you too’.

“I never had any doubts that he would come back to a good level and now I hope we can retain him. I do not know [Eriksen to Brentford]. I know we still have a chance and I hope he will make a decision in two weeks.

“The agreement is that he will call me and tell me what he wants to do. He hasn’t decided yet.”
