Man U fight Spurs over Eriksen

-Ikenna Okafor

Manchester United are hoping to beat the likes of Brentford and Tottenham to the signature of Christian Eriksen, according to reports.

The Denmark international is a man in demand as he enters the final few weeks of his contract with the Bees.

Eriksen was a revelation after becoming part of Thomas Frank’s squad on transfer deadline day in January.

Brentford were just three points clear of the relegation zone when he joined, with the teams below them having as many as three games in hand.

But with his creativity and guile in the centre of the park, Eriksen helped Frank’s men finish 11 points clear of the drop zone.

The 30-year-old only signed a six-month deal with the west Londoners, so he is set to  become a free agent at the end of June.

Brentford are keen to keep hold of Eriksen but they now face competition for his signature from United

There are reports in England that Erik ten Hag wants the attacking midfielder to be part of his squad next season.

The new United boss will be given money to spend this summer, but he is still looking for value in the market.

He believes Eriksen’s experience as well as his quality would make him a huge asset at Old Trafford.
