Football star, Christian Eriksen has agreed in principle to join Manchester United on a free transfer.

This development comes after the Denmark midfielder’s short-term contract at Brentford ended last month.

The 30-year-old who has spent the second half of last season on loan at Brentford has the option of moving to United as he is still to having his medical.

The deal which is being prepared at Old Trafford will be an offer of a three-year contract for Eriksen. Once that is done, he will have a medical before completing the move.

Interestingly, Eriksen has a history of working with United coach, Ten Hag when he trained with Ajax as part of his return to football following his cardiac arrest while playing for Denmark at Euro 2020.

Meanwhile, the former Ajax midfielder is understood to have been attracted by the prospect of working under Ten Hag and being part of United’s new era under the Dutchman.
