Man Utd make two-year contract offer to Christian Eriksen

Manchester United have made a formal contract offer to midfielder Christian Eriksen, according to The Mirror.

The Dane suffered a shock cardiac arrest at the European Championships last summer, but he has since made a terrific comeback.

Brentford signed him on a short-term deal in January this year. He was impressive for them with one goal and four assists from 11 outings.

Eriksen is now free to choose his next club with his deal having expired (June 30), and United are definitely one of his main admirers.

As per The Mirror, United have informed Eriksen that they are willing to hand him a two-year contract worth £150,000-a-week.

However, the midfielder is not in a hurry to make a decision as he is a free-agent. He is prepared to assess the club’s transfer business.

It is reported that Eriksen could sign for United once they confirm the arrivals of Dutch duo Frenkie de Jong and Tyrell Malacia.

Our view:

Eriksen can operate from the central and attacking midfield positions, but he is a natural from the latter of those roles. He could be a quality competitor to Bruno Fernandes at United.

Fernandes has made the number 10 position his own since joining the club two years ago. However, His performances during the second half of last season were far from his best.

The arrival of Eriksen would keep the 27-year-old on his toes. The Dane should also fancy his chances of starting next term as there will be plenty of rotation due to the congested schedule.

With the World Cup sandwiched between the season, United could be playing as many as 10 games in October. The same situation could occur in April 2023. The depth of the squad will be tested.

Eriksen would be a quality acquisition for United with his vast Premier League experience. It could be a matter of time before they sign him with De Jong and Malacia on the verge of joining.

Malacia is set to undergo his medical after sorting out representation issues and De Jong should follow suit. Their arrivals should persuade Eriksen into putting pen-to-paper on the proposed contract.
