During Denmark’s UEFA Nations League match against Austria on Monday, a number of clubs sent scouts to keep a watch on Christian Eriksen and his team.
Manchester United will start their new era under their new boss Erik ten Hag and the fans are optimistic about his development at Old Trafford. Eriksen who currently plays for Brentford will be on the radar of the Red Devils’ scouts.
Clubs interested in signing Christian Eriksen
After his terrifying cardiac attack at Euro 2020, which resulted in him being equipped with an ICD, there were fears that the 30-year-playing old’s career was finished.
After being forced to leave Inter Milan, Eriksen regained his health with Erik ten Hag’s Ajax team before signing a short-term contract with Brentford. Eriksen swiftly established himself as a regular for the Bees, scoring one goal and providing four assists in 11 Premier League appearances.
Although the 30-year-old’s contract with Thomas Frank’s club expires at the end of the month. Eriksen was picked in the first XI for the trip to Austria on Monday night after playing the entire 90 minutes in his side’s 2-1 win over world champions France.
Before the match 1 in League’s A Group, FA middleman Paul O’Keefe revealed a huge number of clubs with scouts in attendance. This included Tottenham, West Ham United Borussia Dortmund & Man United, who are reportedly interested in signing the playmaker.
Man United have reportedly entered the competition to capture Eriksen this summer. However, according to recent reports, Brentford manager Frank is not given up hope of a permanent deal. Eriksen is also thought to be interested in returning to Tottenham where he had his spell of success.
During his time at Spurs he scored 69 goals and assisted on another 90 in 305 appearances between 2013 and 2020. In 237 Premier League appearances, the former Ajax man has 52 goals and 71 assists, although he is yet to make a final choice on his future.
Man United have already lost two playmakers to free transfers in Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata. Thus, they will also battle for Eriksen’s signatures.
