Attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen has committed his future to Man United.
It looks as though a deal to bring Tyrell Malacia is close, though Manchester United aren’t stopping there.
The Old Trafford offices would have been busy this afternoon, with a move for Christian Eriksen now also looking supremely likely.
Credit to David Ornstein and The Athletic with the scoop, who states that Eriksen has ‘verbally agreed’ to sign for United this summer.
In regards to the finer details, Eriksen will commit to a three-year deal at the Theatre of Dreams.
The 30-year-old playmaker has ‘communicated desire’ to play for United, while the prospect of linking up with Erik ten Hag is another attractive reason behind a Reds transfer.
Eriksen actually trained with Ten Hag at Ajax back in January, as the Dane was working his way back up to fitness following that horrific cardiac arrest he suffered last summer at the European Championships.
The former Spurs man was back to his peak at the end of the 2021/22 season with Brentford, scoring, creating and being that general playmaker we all know he is.
What I like most about this addition is that Eriksen can dip in and out of the team where needed, using his experience, knowledge and Premier League understanding.
It also takes some pressure off the likes of Bruno Fernandes. The Portugal international is United’s biggest creative force now that Juan Mata and Paul Pogba have moved on. Eriksen’s addition just eases the burden on our number eighteen just a little bit.
Hopefully, it doesn’t take too long for United to get this deal signed, sealed and delivered before pre-season tour starts in the not-too-distant future.
