Solskjaer asks Manchester United to sign Christian Eriksen



Solskjaer asks Manchester United to sign Christian Eriksen

Christian Eriksen is one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer priority signings this summer, reports say.

The Tottenham midfielder is wanted by Real Madrid this summer after establishing himself as one of the best playmakers in the world in the last two years.

Eriksen would jump at the chance to join Real and has so far given no assurances he will sign a new deal with Tottenham.

The Mirror claim Solskjaer has spoken to Ed Woodward about signing Eriksen and United are prepared to triple the Spurs’ star wages.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is notoriously difficult to negotiate with, but United feel Eriksen’s reluctance to sign a new contract and Real’s focus on other targets could play into their hands.

Eriksen enters the final 12 months of his deal in the summer and Real are prioritising the signings of Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and United’s Paul Pogba.

United would be willing to offer Eriksen a £240,000-a-week contract, an incredible increase on the £80,000 a week he currently earns at Tottenham.

If Tottenham are willing to sell, United anticipate they would demand upwards of £95million for Eriksen.

Levy would not want to lose Eriksen on a free next year and figures within the club’s hierarchy are growing increasingly concerned the Denmark international will run down his contract.

Tottenham have begun the process of finding a replacement for Eriksen, with the likes of Leicester City’s James Maddison on their target list.
