Manchester United advance negotiation to sign playmaker wanted by Real Madrid

Tottenham Hotspur are keen to cash in on their midfielder Christian Eriksen and Manchester United reportedly in advanced talk to sign the ace player.

The surprising move comes as Spurs are trying complete deals for Paulo Dybala and Bruno Fernandes. Spurs needs inflow of funds to pull the deals through as they would be costing the club in the region of £100 million, and with Eriksen set to become a free agent next year and have looked out for interest in their Danish schemer.

This has kept United on their toes and have responded to the news that 27-year-old is up for sale for a bargain fee of £50 million and have begun negotiations with Tottenham to make the move quick.

Eriksen have been open about his desire to transfer to Real Madrid but has not seen his wish actualise, but the veteran player has found a move to Old Trafford a better alternative that where he is at the moment.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a transfer policy that only allowed him sign just homegrown young players this summer but his interest in Eriksen proves the player’s vast Premier League experience is too much to bypass.

“I feel that I am a place in my career where I might want to try something new,” Eriksen told EkstraBladet earlier in the summer.

“I have the wildest and deepest respect for everything that has happened in Tottenham, nor will it be negative. But I have also said that I would like to try something new.”

Eriksen scored eight Premier League goals last season, and has a record of 66 goals in 227 games for Spurs across all competitions.
