Manchester United have already been told Christian Eriksen will bring two key attributes, should he move to Old Trafford this summer.

According to reports Manchester United and Tottenham are interested in signing Christian Eriksen this window. The Danish is currently a free agent. His short-term contract at Brentford came to end after the last match of the season. Eriksen will now have to make a decision on his future club.

MANCHESTER UNITED – CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN TRANSFER SAGA FULL STORY

The Bees are also not ruling themselves out. His last season with Brentford was brilliant. Eriksen never looked out of shape despite playing very less football before. Many fans thought he brought back his younger days with his sharp passing. When asked about the 30-year-old’s time at the Brentford Community Stadium last month, Thomas Frank highlighted some of the traits United would gain if the Dane signed at the Theatre of Dreams.

THE ATTRIBUTES ERIKSEN WOULD BRING TO UNITED

Eriksen is a playmaker and hard worker. He is capable of linking play. He supports his teammates on or off the ball. Other than his heart attack, he has got a non-existent injury record. Thomas Frank said, “He’s the one that dictates the games. He’s always been running and covering a lot of ground but his recovery runs, his willingness to come back into the box and clear balls, heading balls away, that you have to do when you play for Brentford, has been remarkable.

The midfielder now has started playing fearless and attacking football. The manager says he has started enjoying the game more and cares a bit more about it. His top qualities like his intelligence and his delivery from a free kick still have their own charm.

Having said that, Ten Hag is likely to get plenty out of Eriksen. He is also a very low-risk transfer, as he is a free transfer. A potential midfield of Bruno Fernandes, Frenkie De Jong, and Eriksen does sound like a brilliant midfield. A midfield that just might unlock their ambitions of Champions League football for next season.
