The Lowdown: Eriksen’s impressive Premier League return
Eriksen made a move back to England with Brentford at the beginning of the year, penning a contract until the end of the season.
It didn’t take long for Eriksen to catch the eye with the Bees, with Gary Neville labelling the midfielder’s passing as ‘out of this world‘.
The 30-year-old won seven games in 11 starts with Brentford, contributing to five goals mainly from a slightly deeper midfield role than we’re used to seeing him. He is now weighing up his next move, and it looks as if Erik ten Hag is keen to bring the Denmark international to Old Trafford.
The Latest: Ornstein’s reveal
Ornstein took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon to provide a significant update on Eriksen’s future.
The reliable reporter revealed that United have ‘made an offer’ for the midfielder, with Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong still a priority.
The Verdict: Shrewd move
Eriksen would give Ten Hag another high-quality attacking midfield option who has plenty of experience in the Premier League and in Europe.
He’d also be able to turn out in a deeper role or out wide, and after showing last season he still has the quality to star in England, a free transfer could turn out to be an excellent piece of business.
