Christian Eriksen’s contract with Brentford, which expires at the end of June 2022, and there is no sign of interest in continuing his career with the Bees, has made Manchester United want to take the opportunity.
As is known, Erik ten Hag, who has just been appointed as coach of the Red Devils, has shown an interest in the 30-year-old midfielder because he needs additional creative players.
Being able to bring in Eriksen for free or for free, is considered to be a big advantage for MU, after he has returned to showing his best performances at club level and with the Danish national team.
However, Danny Murphy as a former Liverpool player from 1997 to 2004 actually suggested that Man United would not comply with Ten Hag’s wishes, after Murphy felt that Eriksen did not match the Red Devils’ style of play.
“If Ten Hag thinks he will play Eriksen and Bruno Fernandes in midfield with only one defender, they will end up worse than the 2021/22 season,” Murphy said of Mirror Football.
“Would he take him as a back-up to Bruno, play as a number ten? Or use him as a central midfielder? If he brought in Frenkie de Jong and Eriksen in midfield, where is his tenacity and physical presence? Nothing,” he concluded.
Although there has been criticism, Ten Hag seems to ignore it and continues to want to try to really bring in Eriksen to add quality to his squad.
