Decision time looming?

According to BBC Sport, the Red Devils are hoping to have more clarity on a whether a deal for Eriksen is possible before the first batch of players report back for pre-season training on Monday.

They add Eriksen’s preference is to remain in London, although a deal with a club from the capital has not been agreed, giving United further hope of completing a deal. Meanwhile, a move for Frenkie De Jong would have no impact on a potential transfer for the former Inter Milan star.

Erik ten Hag knows Eriksen well from his time at Ajax, and the latter trained with the club’s reserve team last season while Ten Hag was in charge of the senior side.

Brentford still in the running

90min report that Brentford have not given hope of securing Eriksen’s signature despite the 30-year-old indicating at the end of last season that he planned to leave the club.

Yet the outlet claims Brentford have ‘made renewed efforts’ to sign the Denmark international, with Thomas Frank even meeting Eriksen to discuss his future.

As per 90min, West Ham United are also interested in concluding a transfer for the much-coveted playmaker, but state he will most likely end up at Tottenham Hotspur or Brentford.

Spurs interest cooling

Tottenham’s initial interest in Eriksen has waned over recent weeks with the North London side now unaware of their former player’s plans.

The Times state Spurs have not heard anything from Eriksen in two weeks and he is now ‘mulling over’ an offer from United.

They also claim he had previously hoped to stay in London, but Tottenham’s lessening interest could open the door for United to try and convince him to sign.
