Why Christian Eriksen is stalling on Man United move

A fresh insight into the stance of soon-to-be free agent Christian Eriksen when it comes to the possibility of linking up with Manchester United this summer has been provided.

The last couple of weeks, of course, have seen speculation rampant in the media that the Red Devils are keen on adding Danish international Eriksen to the club's ranks with a view to next season.

This comes with the 30-year-old fresh off a stellar stint back in England with Thomas Frank's Brentford over the 2nd half of last season.

With his short-term deal in west London due to come to a close at the end of the month, though, Eriksen's intentions for the 2022/23 campaign have long been unclear.

But, on Monday, an insight into as much has been provided.

The info comes courtesy of David McDonnell of The Mirror, who suggests that, despite reports to the contrary, Eriksen has not closed the door on the possibility of making the move to Old Trafford.

The midfielder, instead, is understood to be keeping United waiting, keen to see the calibre of player which arrives through the door on the red half of Manchester over the coming weeks.

The insinuation, in turn, is that, should Eriksen be sufficiently impressed by the level of reinforcement to new boss Erik ten Hag's squad, he will then take into serious consideration committing to the terms of a contract with the Red Devils.
