This has given the Old Trafford club hope they can bring in Eriksen, who has admitted his desire for a new challenge away from north London.
Eriksen’s contract expires at the end of the season and he would be happy to leave Spurs in January to ensure they get a fee for him.
Manchester United are plotting to sign Christian Eriksen from Tottenham during January
Manchester United, meanwhile, are keen to sign a creative spark after struggling to overcome Wolves, Crystal Palace and Southampton.
Eriksen opened the scoring for Spurs as they took a 2-0 lead at Arsenal in the north London derby before succumbing to a draw.
On the possibility of a transfer away, Eriksen has said: ‘I wish I could decide just like in Football Manager, but unfortunately I can’t.
‘For me it’s not hard to clear my head. I don’t read much of what is written.
‘And now I have been involved for many years, where there have been many rumours every year.
‘But it’s clear that it’s been a little more rife this year because my contract is about to expire. There has been a lot said about me.
‘I should have been looking at houses in Madrid [according to the speculation], but I have to be honest and say that all that writing is not something that bothers me. At all.’
