Christian Eriksen has reportedly agreed to join Manchester United on a free transfer.
The Denmark international has verbally accepted a three-year contract to be part of Erik ten Hag’s Old Trafford revolution.
The signing is not yet complete, with formalities still to be carried out – but the playmaker is now set to become one of a host of new recruits this summer.
It is believed Eriksen could also have returned to Thomas Frank’s side, but the lure of playing for United proved too much.
A three-year contract is being prepared for Eriksen, who is still to have his medical at Old Trafford.
Eriksen could be United and new manager Erik ten Hag’s second signing of the summer transfer window, with Feyenoord defender Tyrell Malacia undergoing a medical at Carrington ahead of his move.
Eriksen became a free agent after his short-term deal with Brentford came to an end last month.
Tottenham had also shown interest in re-signing their former player – but when Antonio Conte turned his attention to other targets, it left United as front-runners for the 30-year-old.
Ten Hag sees Eriksen as capable of playing in a deeper midfield role or as a No10 to give him more options in the middle of the pitch.
United’s priority is central midfield, with Ten Hag closing in on a deal for De Jong, but defensive reinforcements are also being looked at Old Trafford.
