Amongst Manchester United’s many problems is the need for a creative spark in midfield. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s task hasn’t been helped by the fact that Paul Pogba has been out injured for over two months.
One name the Red Devils are looking at is Christian Eriksen. The talented Dane is out of contract next summer, with the Baby Faced Assassin seemingly keen on the attacking midfielder.
Now, according to the Daily Mirror, it is being claimed that United haven’t given up their chase. They say that the Reds ‘hope they can persuade’ the 27-year-old to sign for them – despite the fact that Eriksen rejected a move to Old Trafford in the summer.
Back in July, United approached Eriksen but the midfielder preferred to stay at Tottenham Hotspur, playing Champions League football.
United are trying to make the move happen in January, but apparently, the playmaker is understood to have indicated a preference for a new culture at this stage in his career.
Although Eriksen would probably be available for a cut-price fee, the worst thing United can do is bring in a player who isn’t fully sold on what Solskjaer is trying to achieve.
If Eriksen buys into everything about United then sure, bring him in, but at this point in time that doesn’t seem to be the case…
