Christian Eriksen to snub Man Utd transfer as Danish star 'wants to stay in London' in boost to Spurs and Brentford | The Sun

CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN is set to snub a move to Manchester United as he is keen to remain in London, according to reports.

The midfielder, 30, returned to the Premier League in January – just seven months after suffering a cardiac arrest while on international duty with Denmark at Euro2020.

He signed a short-term deal with Brentford on deadline day and made an instant impact upon his arrival.

In 11 appearances he recorded five goal contributions and helped the club to a mid-table finish.

But he is now set to become a free agent once again when his contract expires at the end of this month.

Manchester United have been heavily linked with a swoop for the star, but their chances of sealing a deal are now very slim.

According to The Athletic, Eriksen would like to stay in London so a move to Old Trafford is looking unlikely.

The Red Devils have already put an offer on the table, but it could now prove to be difficult to persuade him to accept.

Brentford and Tottenham are also competing for his signature, however, the midfielder has already rejected an offer from the Bees.

Spurs boss Antonio Conte is said to be keen to reunite with Eriksen after the pair enjoyed a successful spell together at Inter Milan.

And the North London side could put a significant offer on the table in order to lure him back.

Eriksen spent six-and-a-half years with Tottenham before moving to Italy in 2020.

During that time he scored 69 goals and assisted 90 in 304 appearances across all competitions.

Spurs kicked off what is set to be a busy summer with the signing of Ivan Perisic, who arrived on a free transfer from Inter Milan.

34-year-old goalkeeper Fraser Forster was announced as the club's second summer signing – he also joined on a free transfer from Premier League rivals Southampton.
