Man United to offer Liverpool target Eriksen £240,000-a-week to leave Spurs this summer
Fresh reports have again claimed Manchester United are ready to sign Liverpool transfer target Christian Eriksen from Tottenham during the summer transfer window.
Eriksen has become a vital part of Mauricio Pochettino’s side over the past few seasons and is one of the creative reasons why they score so many goals throughout the course of the season, but there has been speculation that he could leave the club.
It is believed that the Danish star has refused three contract offers from Spurs over the past few months, with the latest reportedly close to the £110,000-a-week mark, with the likes of Real Madrid, Chelsea, United and Barcelona all keeping a close eye.
And according to reports in the media, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was ready to swoop in and offer him a summer move to Anfield, as the German boss seeks to add a long-term replacement to the aging Jordan Henderson, who has become a bit-part player at the club this season.
But the Sunday Mirror has now claimed United are willing to treble the Tottenham playmaker’s wages to £240k-a-week to bring him to Old Trafford, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer desperate to add some creativity to his midfield in hope of getting United back to the very top of the game.
It is no secret that United are fans of a number of players at Tottenham and would make a move if the right players on the market become available, so if Eriksen is available, they will surely make a move.
However, Spurs are no fools in the transfer market and will be looking to get well above what Eriksen is actually worth in the coming windows if he leaves, especially if Liverpool and United are seeking a deal.
The Danish star is a creative force for Tottenham and they would find it very difficult finding an immediate replacement, but at the end of the day every player has their price and money talks.
Eriksen wants a big wage like star man Harry Kane, who is reportedly on £200,000-a-week, Spurs do not want to give it to him. So if United offer Eriksen the big wage and pay the high asking price on his head, then it could be a good deal all around for the clubs involved.
