Manchester United are close to reaching an agreement with Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen, according to reports in Spain.
Concise News learnt that the 27-year-old has one year remaining on his current contract and admitted in June that he wants to leave Spurs this summer.
Eriksen has made it clear that he would be open to joining Real Madrid but the Denmark international is not the club’s first-choice option as Zinedine Zidane is prioritising a move for Paul Pogba.
However, Manchester United are standing firm over their £150 million valuations of Pogba and Madrid have so far been unable to come close to matching the midfielder’s valuation.
That has left Madrid seeking other options to Pogba and Eriksen, along with Ajax’s Donny van de Beek, is an alternative.
According to AS, Madrid have maintained contact with Eriksen’s representatives throughout the summer and made it clear during talks last week that the Spurs midfielder is still on their shortlist if they are unable to sign Pogba.
But the report claims that Eriksen is now ‘seriously considering’ a proposal from Manchester United after being offered a five-year contract in the last few days.
The report claims that Eriksen is ‘convinced’ by United’s rebuild under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who first proposed the signing to the Old Trafford hierarchy in March.
