Man United Tried To Sign This €35m Rated Star Last Summer

Paris Saint-Germain along with Manchester United and Juventus all reportedly tried to sign Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen throughout the summer transfer window.

Eriksen was heavily linked with a move away from white hart lane over the summer but recently signed a new four year contract with the club ending speculation of a move away at least for the time being.

Tottenham are desperate to keep hold of their star man but despite the midfielder signing a new deal at the lane it remains unlikely that they will be able to hang on to Eriksen for much longer.

The 24-year-old is seen by Paris Saint Germain as the clubs top priority transfer target and should a substantial bid be made for the midfielder it is thought spurs would consider letting him go.

Eriksen joined Tottenham back in August 2013 from Ajax and has since gone on to become a key member of the spurs side. His superb set pieces combined with his fantastic passing ability on the ball makes him a real asset for Tottenham and one which Mauricio Pochettino will be undoubtedly want to keep.

Having narrowly missed out on the premier league title to Leicester City last term it is essential that Pochenttino holds on to his star players. In the past spurs have seen the likes of Dimitar Berbatov, Luka Modric, and Gareth Bale all depart the club and have been left to pick up the pieces and rebuild once more. Should they let that happen again they would not only be letting themselves down but more importantly they would be letting the supporters down too.

Pochettino is building something really special at spurs Eriksen along with others are all part of the Argentineans plan to move spurs onto the next level. Paris Saint-Germain may have superior financial power compared to spurs but what would Eriksen gain by moving to the French champions? He would be playing in a lower quality league and would not be guaranteed to start every week. Moving to Paris would be the easy way out for Eriksen, the real challenge for the midfielder lies at white hart lane.

At just twenty four years of age Christian Eriksen stands as one of the finest midfielders in word football whose best footballing days are ahead of him. He is a player which Pochettino can build around and a player who could make a serious difference in whether spurs can finally get over the line and bring the league championship back to white hart lane for the first time since 1961.

Whether Eriksen stays at the lane beyond this season remains to be seen however one thing cannot be denied, should Pochettino manage to hold on to his star man it would be a victory for not only for Tottenham Hotspur but for football itself.

    Why? Because Europa League Manchester United want him? Because awful Ligue 1 side PSG want him? Because quickly deteriorating Serie A side Juventus want him?
    Spurs are in the Champions League. Third in the Premier League. Unbeaten. Best defence in the league. World class training facilities. World class stadium currently being built. Some of the best young players on the planet. Best run club in world football. Best team spirit in world football.
