Danish professional footballer, Christian Eriksen has reportedly agreed to play for Manchester United on a free transfer.
Naija News understands that the 30-year-old was rumoured to have been considering Brentford or Manchester United, but has now concluded on joining Old Trafford this week.
Erik ten Hag’s side is expected to finalise a three-year contract for the Danish player who spent the second half of last season on loan at Brentford.
Eriksen is expected to have a medical at Old Trafford once the contract gets signed before the week ends.
Renowned sports pundit, Fabrizio Romano confirmed the deal on his verified Twitter page on Monday morning.
He wrote: “Christian Eriksen will sign three year deal with Manchester United this week, medical already scheduled. Eriksen has already direct talk with Erik ten Hag, key factor.
“Manchester United is working to announce both Malacia and Eriksen as new signings this week.”
This is coming weeks after Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong agreed on personal terms to join Manchester United this summer.
The 25-year-old according to reports has agreed to play for the Red Devils starting this 2022/2023 Premier League season despite the club refusing to qualify for the next UEFA Champions League.
Naija News understands that De Jong’s initial plan was to remain in Barcelona.
Man United’s manager is, however, interested in signing the Netherlands international which has now given a green light.
Barcelona already had made it open that the 25-year-old is leaving the club, this is as the club currently suffers extreme financial issues and is ready to cash in on one of its prized assets.
Reports last month affirmed that De Jong has privately admitted he is ready to join the Premier League side after initial doubts.
