So The Manchester Evening News reports that Manchester United are interested in signing Christian Eriksen this summer. The London Evening Standard claims that United wants the Danish star to be the center of their summer recruitment drive. He has just over a year left in his contract.
Tottenham Hotspur wants £60 million for the midfielder, if United wants to sign him. United is interested in helping to bolster the squad with central midfielders this summer. Well let me first say this is news to me, because I don’t think he’s worth that much especially when you consider the fact that he has been inconsistent for Spurs this season. Last season he was inconsistent also, although he is a good player he hasn’t made the kind of impact that a Harry Kane, Delli Ali or Son Heung-Min has who is on fire this season for Spurs.
First of all, United needs to obtain world-class players in the transfer market in order for us to compete in all of the competitions next season. Christian Eriksen on his day could potentially be among the best in the world when he’s on song. But he hasn’t made significant impacts on the really big matches for Spurs. Even some of the less important matches for Spurs he doesn’t always give his best performance. United would be making another mistake if we signed the Danish international.
Presently the Red Devils has too many “good” or “very good” players that aren’t up to standard against the Premier League’s and Europe’s top teams. We are even losing to mid-table teams like Everton or Wolves who are just a few places higher. When you consider that Wolves is a newly promoted club and they beat us twice convincingly tells you a story within itself.
We need world class players like a Karim Benzema, Neymar, Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne or a Sergio Aguero. Well I know we most likely won’t get any of these players, but there are players that is in that category or close to it we can purchase and are really going to enhance our squad immediately. Can we sign at least the 6 players that we need this summer and are among the best of the best in the world currently? We’ll just have to see what Ed Woodward does. Every United fan is eagerly awaiting the big name signings that we can hopefully get this year.
