It has been reported that Manchester United intends to make the announcement regarding the signing of Christian Eriksen while they are on their summer tour of Australia.
Eriksen, who left Brentford at the end of the previous season, is still an unsigned free agent. However, the Dane now appears set to sign a three-year contract and join Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford despite being enticed to return to Tottenham.
This summer, the Red Devils appointed the Dutchman as their new manager. Though more are anticipated to come, only Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord has joined the team as a new signing so far.
Eriksen perfectly satisfies Ten Hag’s desire for his midfield to display more creativity.
After having an implantable cardioverter defibrillator fitted, the 30-year-old demonstrated during his time with the Bees that he has fully recovered from his cardiac arrest from last summer.
Eriksen has since undergone a thorough medical exam, and, according to ESPN, he has verbally accepted the three-year contract.
In fact, United is optimistic that the former Spurs and Ajax star will be able to travel to Australia and join his new teammates.
Following their 4-0 friendly demolition of Liverpool in Bangkok, Ten Hag’s men made their way to Australia on Wednesday.
Jadon Sancho, Fred, Anthony Martial, and Facundo Pellistri all scored in a rallying victory over the Liverpool team.
