Manchester United’s interest in Danish starlet Chrstian Eriksen remains strong, report Ita Sport Press.
Sir Alex Ferguson must assess whether Eriksen can replace Paul Scholes, who will surely retire for a second time at the end of the season.
United have long been linked with Eriksen, Reds coach Rene Meulensteen revealed last month that while there’s definetly strong interest, a bid isn’t forthcoming (Goal.com).
Eriksen is currently enjoying his third season in the Eredivisie, scoring five goals so far this term. The attacking midfielder made his international debut in March 2010, at the age of eighteen against Austria.
Since then, he has won another nineteen caps, including several appearances at the 2010 World Cup. Not bad for a twenty-year old.
2011 is where Eriksen really came into his own, picking up his first league title with Ajax. He also achieved great individual success, winning Dutch Football Talent Of The Year and Danish Footballer Of The Year.
Eriksen is the best player to come out of Denmark since Michael Laudrup, a true footballing genius. If Eriksen can go on to achieve even half of what Laudrup did, he has a wonderful career ahead of him.
Based on what I’ve seen so far, I wouldn’t bet against it. Sir Alex must be thinking about bringing in the Dane to shore up his ‘problematic’ central midfield area.
