Manchester United appear to be in pole position to sign Christian Eriksen thanks to Tottenham Hotspur’s decision to pull out of the race.

Man Utd receive welcome Christian Eriksen transfer boost thanks to Antonio Conte

Christian Eriksen

New Red Devils manager Erik ten Hag wants to make the 30-year-old his first signing amidst a difficult start to his maiden summer transfer window at Old Trafford. Last week, United have offered Eriksen a deal to leave Brentford when his contract with the Bees expires on June 30.

Ten Hag has now been handed a major boost in his efforts, as the Daily Star report that Tottenham manager Antonio Conte has backed down in his bid to reunite with the midfielder. Conte coached Eriksen at Inter Milan between January 2020 and June 2021, when the Denmark international suffered a cardiac arrest during a European Championship match and spent more than seven months recovering before miraculously getting back to the professional game.

Spurs had been tipped to re-sign Eriksen this summer, having previously made over 300 appearances in north London prior to joining Conte in Italy and ultimately win the Serie A title during his first full season at San Siro. But while the pair worked well in Milan despite some tactical teething problems, it is Ten Hag who looks likely to be the Dane’s next boss.

Although Brentford remain willing to break the bank to keep Eriksen for another campaign following his one goal and four assists in a spectacular second half of last term, the Red Devils are the favourites to land his signature once he makes a decision on whether or not to change clubs in the coming days.
