former Inter Milan midfielder, Christian Eriksen is said to have decided against joining Manchester United this summer.
Eriksen’s career took a turn for the better after a stellar season with Brentford in 2012/13, and he is now linked with a move to Manchester United.
The Dane is expected to reject a move to Manchester United in order to stay in London, potentially paving the way for a spectacular return to Tottenham Hotspur.
Eriksen is a key target for new Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag, who is looking to enhance his midfield options this summer.
Man United announced the departure of 11 first-team players earlier this month, including midfielders Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, and Nemanja Matic.
The Red Devils are in talks with Barcelona over a possible transfer.
Eriksen’s contract with Brentford expires on June 30th, and it was rumoured a few days ago that Man United had offered him a contract offer.
According to The Athletic, Man United will not be able to sign Eriksen because the 30-year-old wants to stay in London.
Eriksen’s current club Brentford and former club Tottenham would be the frontrunners to sign him on a permanent deal this summer ahead of next season.
