Christian Eriksen has been reported to reject a bid from Manchester United this summer transfer window. Sources have not confirmed whether the rejected offer was due for renegotiations or if Eriksen is looking elsewhere. Eriksen recently joined Brentford on a season-long loan after the unfortunate spell he experienced during his international game during the Euro 2020. Eriksen will be a free agent this June and is not expected to sign with any Serie A team due to their policy of not allowing athletes to play with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator.
As it stands, Eriksen is likely to extend his contract with Brentford or a possible move to Tottenham in the Premier League. In 2013 Eriksen joined Tottenham from Ajax in a deal believed to be worth £11 million (€12.45 million). Eriksen joined the club on the same day as Erik Lamela, who joined from Roma, and Vlad Chiricheș, who joined from Steaua București, and took the club’s total spending for the 2013 summer transfer window to £109.5 million. He made his league debut against Norwich City on 14 September and provided an assist for Gylfi Sigurðsson in a 2–0 victory. After the match, Spurs manager André Villas-Boas commented, “It was a great debut for Christian, he is a pure number 10, a creative player and his individual quality made all the difference.”
Eriksen began his senior club career at age 18 in 2010, playing for Ajax, where he won three Eredivisie titles and the KNVB Cup. In Tottenham Hotspur Eriksen was twice named the club’s Player of the Year, was voted into the 2017–18 PFA Team of the Year, and later also reached the 2019 UEFA Champions League Final. In 2020, Eriksen joined Inter Milan in a transfer worth €19.7 million (£16.9 million) and won a Serie A title prior to the mutual termination of his contract in 2021. Eriksen returned to the Premier League in 2022 with a move to Brentford.
Eriksen made his senior international debut for Denmark in 2010 at age 18, and has since earned over 110 caps, including appearing in five major tournaments; he was also the youngest player at the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Eriksen is his country’s seventh-highest all-time goalscorer and was named Danish Football Player of the Year a record five times.
