Christian Eriksen has AGREED to join Manchester United until 2025
Danish midfielder, Christian Eriksen has verbally agreed in principle to join Manchester United on a 3-year-deal.
According to seasoned football journalist, Fabrizio Romano, the 30-year-old playmaker have reached full verbal agreement with United after turning down a huge offer from ex-club Brentford and the possibility to rejoin Antonio Conte at Tottenham.
Eriksen has been weighing up offers from both United and Brentford – where he spent the season, but has decided to sign for United until 2025.
It continues a remarkable comeback for Eriksen after suffering a cardiac arrest on the pitch playing for Denmark at the European Championships just 13 months ago.
The midfielder must first go through significant medical tests at Old Trafford before the deal is finalised, as contracts are being prepared.
Eriksen scored one and assisted four in 11 games during the second-half of last season at Brentford.
The Bees held ‘positive talks’ with Eriksen at the end of last month and were hopeful to lure the playmaker back to west London.
However, Eriksen’s decision to join United is a huge boost for new boss Erik ten Hag, who is still waiting to make his first signing at Old Trafford.
Eriksen enjoyed his best Premier League stint at top six rivals Tottenham, scoring 69 and assisting 90 during a seven-year spell at the club
