Manchester United are making progress in the club’s bid to sign Denmark international midfielder Christian Eriksen.

According to Daily Star, Manchester United have held several rounds of “positive” talks with Eriksen and are confident of signing the midfielder.

The report also adds that Manchester United have offered Eriksen a two year contract worth £150,000-a-week and expect the midfielder to move to Old Trafford.

Eriksen returned to English football last season after joining Brentford on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

His Inter Milan contract was cancelled after he suffered a cardiac arrest during the Euros last summer. He made a comeback from his cardiac arrest by joining Brentford in January.

Brentford are keen to keep Eriksen and have also offered to make the midfielder their highest earner.

Meanwhile, Manchester United legend Gary Neville has already thrown his weight behind the prospect of Eriksen sealing a move to Manchester United this summer.

“I think Eriksen will get plucked by a big club,” Neville said, speaking at The Overlap Live last month.

“He might show loyalty, to be fair, because of what Brentford have done for him.

“I tell you what, if you were any top-six club that were looking at a midfield-three and you wanted a player to go in there and play 30 games for you in a squad-type [situation], you’d [take him].

“He could play for Manchester City, he could play for Liverpool, he could play for any of the top six.

“I’m not saying starting every week, but he could come on. Look at what [Xherdan] Shaqiri was doing at Liverpool for two or three years there.

“If Liverpool are looking for a midfield player to come on for, say, Thiago – who gets injured a little bit – why would you not look at Eriksen?

“Why would you not look to him to come in for two seasons and do a job for you doing that? He’s brilliant.

“He’s a brilliant pro, he’s a great player, his quality on the ball is unbelievable.

“To be fair, Brentford played out here [at Old Trafford], it was one of the games United won, but some of Eriksen’s passing in that game was out of this world at Old Trafford.”
