Manchester United ‘have held talks’ about £42 million Eriksen January signing!
Fresh reports have claimed Manchester United have held talks with Christian Eriksen about a possible January deal.
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, Liverpool and Barcelona all keeping a close eye.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a firm favourite to the midfielder, and would love to add his creativity to a United side that is lacking in top-class talent.
Tottenham are in a predicament, with Eriksen unwilling to sign a contract extension as he enters the final 12 months of his deal and it would mean he’d be free to talk to other clubs from January, but it seems Spurs have made up their mind.
According to El Desmarque,, United have moved ahead of the likes of Real Madrid for the services of Eriksen and have already held talks with the midfielders representatives about a possible deal in the January window.
And the report goes on to suggest that United are willing to offer a fee of around £42 million to secure a transfer deal for the midfielder.
Spurs don’t want to see the man leave, especially as they will not have an adequate replacement to fill the void, and goals, that he may leave, but at the end of the day he looks like a man that is ready to leave and that should be in January.
Spurs need to get some money so they can go out and find an adequate replacement, and although he will be missed, £42 million goes along way to finding a decent midfielder.
