Eriksen will choose Manchester United – Crook
Christian Eriksen, a Danish midfielder, is increasingly likely to choose Manchester United over Brentford this summer, according to football pundit and transfer expert Alex Crook.
Additionally, according to Crook, Eriksen is currently the subject of a direct bidding war between Man United and Brentford.
Eriksen’s contract with Brentford will expire this summer, making him eligible to join any club on a free transfer.
The 30-year-old sensationally recovered from a cardiac arrest he suffered during Euro 2020 and in January signed with Brentford on a free transfer.
Speaking on TalkSPORT (via Football 365), Crook said, “I was told yesterday that confidence is growing that Christian Eriksen will choose Manchester United. But I think that in itself is quite a damning statement because Tottenham has pulled back from their early interest.”
“There was talk of Newcastle middle of last week, that doesn’t seem to have kicked on, so effectively it looks like a straight shootout between Manchester United and Brentford… but if it really does come down to a choice between Manchester United and Brentford, what does it say about Manchester United and how far they have fallen that there is even a decision to be made.”
