Manchester United set to move for unsettled Premier League star in January

According to the English newspaper, The Sun, Manchester United are set to make an offer for the unsettled Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen in the January transfer window. Eriksen had expressed his desire to move to Spain, specifically Real Madrid in the summer but was not able to get his desired move. There were also reports that Eriksen had already rejected Manchester United’s advances this summer but he might have a change of mind now seeing how his Real Madrid aspirations have collapsed.

Seeing how Spurs have struggled to unlock defences without Eriksen, Pochettino would prefer to keep the central midfielder at least till his contract expires in next summer. Spurs have not made a good start to the season, Pochettino has been very vocal with his displeasure of some of his players’ attitude.

Manchester United also have made a very poor start to the season with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer already under pressure. Their midfield especially looks very one dimensional and they desperately need a playmaker. Eriksen would be wonderful signing for them but purely from a winning trophies point of view, Eriksen will not favour a move to Old Trafford.
