Man United and Spurs keen as brilliant midfielder makes transfer announcement
Christian Eriksen says he has “an idea” of where he will be playing next season – amid both Tottenham and Man United are eyeing up a potential move
The Danish star almost died during the European Championships last summer and is very lucky to be alive, never-mind playing at a very high level in the Premier League.
He was ultimately let go by Inter Milan as Italy sporting regulations meant he couldn’t continue his career in Serie A as he has had an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD).
That allowed Brentford to swoop in and offer him a contract until the end of the season, and despite all the worries that he may not be able to cope – he has been brilliant for the club since his arrival
However, it is believed that he will once again be a free agent in the coming transfer window and there has been alot of speculation in the media that a number of big clubs – including Tottenham and Man United– are very much interested in a potential deal
Both know they need to make a couple of signings in the transfer window and both are ready to offer Eriksen a move to one of the big clubs once again – he must make a decision regarding his next move – and has hinted that he knows what he wants to do
“I don’t know what the future holds,” he told BBC Sport. “It will be a decision from a sporting perspective but also be a family perspective going into the decision of where we’re going to go.”
Asked if Brentford are in the conversation, he said: “They are, they definitely are. I haven’t made up my mind 100% of where I’m going.
“I have an idea, but what’s going to happen I don’t know. But Brentford are definitely in the category of one of the clubs.”
He added: “I’ve always wanted to win trophies. I’m always on the competitive side, I always want to be the best version possible in any way, playing at the highest level possible.
“In the end it takes time and also it changes perspective if something like that happens and how my family reacts.
“Just the feeling of being with my family is more important, not that it wasn’t important before, but you just realise: ‘Oh, this is something that I care about even more now’.”
