Manchester United have to adequately strengthen their squad in the transfer window next month and a former Tottenham star is on their radar.
According to an exclusive story covered by The Sun, Man Utd consider making a shock swoop for Danish international Christian Eriksen, who is having a torrid time with Inter Milan.
Transfer: Man Utd backed to secure signing of £140million forward
The 28-year-old made over 300 appearances for Spurs and was one of the best attacking midfielders in the Premier League. However, in January 2020, he opted to move to the Nerazzurri in a deal worth £17million.
The Sun claim that the Serie A giants are prepared to offload the playmaker, who has mainly warmed the bench under Antonio Conte, and would demand a fee of about £27million.
The British source have further mentioned that Man Utd are eyeing him to replace Pogba, whose future is uncertain at the club.
In all competitions, so far, the 103-capped international has only started a single game in the UEFA Champions League and just four fixtures in the Italian league this term.
The £200,000-a-week star (Football Insider) can play as a CAM, CM and also on the flanks if needed and he has the quality to improve the squad at Old Trafford.
However, in the No.10 role, the Red Devils already have a world class player in the form of Fernandes, who is irreplaceable. On the other hand, in the back-up, Van de Beek is there. Therefore, there is no real need to sign a CAM in the winter transfer window.
In your view, should Solskjaer move in to sign 28-year-old Christian Eriksen next month?
