Manchester United has asked Spurs to keep them up to date regarding Christian Eriksen’s situation, because Spurs could allow the Danish international to leave for £70m this summer.
But in addition to that Eriksen is fascinated by a new challenge and may leave the club. Many teams have been said to be interested in the midfielder such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Atletico Madrid, but since there monies have been spent on other players Manchester United seems to be the favourite to sign him.
I’m surprised by this news report, because I thought that he wasn’t even considered by United anymore. I think that Christian Eriksen is a good player and can be an excellent player when he’s at his best, but he’s too inconsistent. Last season he didn’t show up and had no real influence on games. Especially the big ones like the FA cup or the Champions League. Sometimes he plays really well and other times not.
Also I don’t think that compared to other midfielders he hasn’t shown that he’s among the best in the world as yet. I guess United is desperate to sign him if this report is to be believed. The transfer market hasn’t been one where its easier to sign players this year compared to past years. Each year it just gets more difficult to obtain the player that clubs covet.
If we can’t get Bruno Fernandes which is better quality player than Eriksen, then we should look at other alternatives. This coming season we need to have a team that would at least challenge for all the trophies. So in order to do that we must find the right players with the proper quality to give ourselves a fighting chance. Unfortunately Eriksen isn’t a real game changer for us domestically and in Europe.
