If you are tired of reading about Christian Eriksen potentially leaving Tottenham in January, then El Desmarque is not the website for you.
They’ve produced an almost daily slew of articles about the Danish midfielder since the summer, primarily because they’re convinced Real Madrid want to sign him.
Today is no different but, in a surprise twist, it’s not Real Madrid who are going to try and sign him but Manchester United.
United’s interest was well covered in the summer, but ultimately a move never happened, with Eriksen said to prefer the move to Spain.
However, that never happened as Zinedine Zidane was heavily focusing on getting Paul Pogba out of Manchester United.
Recent weeks have seen reports that the Frenchman has now been convinced to sign Eriksen, but it may be too late.
El Desmarque say he is now ‘tired of waiting for the Real Madrid coach’ and a move to Real Madrid is now ‘complicated’. Instead, he’s now in talks with United and ‘began conversations’ a few weeks ago.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær is particularly keen, he wants to pair Eriksen with Pogba, and he may end up getting his way.
Manchester United will reportedly offer €50m, around £43m, to get Eriksen in the January transfer window.
Tottenham would be more than willing to accept such as a big fee as it is not only a great price but would ensure they don’t lose the midfielder on a free in the summer.
It does, though, sound a little fanciful. Manchester United paying such a big price for a player who’s available on a free six months later is debatable.
Factor in that Eriksen isn’t in form, isn’t what they need and at 27 is older than they’d like, it makes such a move even less likely.
Instead, this feels more like another dubious and unlikely addition to the long-running transfer saga that Christian Eriksen now is.
