Transfer news: Manchester United set to make January bid for Eriksen after receiving ‘fresh hope’

Manchester United are planning a fresh move for Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen after Real Madrid failed to land the Dane during the summer.

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, 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.’
