Manchester United are reportedly considering making a move for Christian Eriksen in the January transfer window.
Eriksen’s contract at Tottenham expires at the end of the season and the midfielder has made clear his desire to move on to pastures new.
The 27-year-old was keen on a move to Real Madrid this summer but a move failed to materialise.

United, meanwhile, are lacking quality midfield options, particularly with Paul Pogba currently out injured and are hopeful of a cut-price deal for Eriksen.
According to Goal, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told chief executive Ed Woodward to make the Denmark international a priority target in January.
United wanted to make a move for Eriksen in August but cooled their interest after learning of his desire to join Madrid.
Eriksen has made a disappointing start to the new season having initially been left out of Mauricio Pochettino’s starting XI.
Since winning back his first team place, the former Ajax man has been criticised for a lack of effort, while Pochettino has acknowledged that the player is unsettled.
On Wednesday, Eriksen’s season went from bad to worse when he missed a penalty in Tottenham’s Carabao Cup shootout defeat by League Two side Colchester.
