Manchester United have joined the race to sign Christian Eriksen on a free transfer this summer.

Eriksen returned to football in January and enjoyed an excellent second half of the season with Brentford after signing a six-month deal with the Bees.

Thomas Frank’s side are keen to extend his stay and make him their highest-paid player in club history. However, Tottenham and Everton are among sides also keen to sign him at The Mirror and are now reporting United have joined the race.

Erik ten Hag is said to have been very impressed by the Dane’s wish. The Dutchman believes the former Ajax youngster can now play a key role in rebuilding Old Trafford with midfield, an area he will urgently tackle this summer.

Tottenham have the added appeal of Champions League football on offer but United are hoping they can persuade him to join Manchester.

The report adds that ten Hag is hoping to add six players to his United squad this summer in a bid to lift the club out of their current malaise.

Frenkie de Jong is the Dutchman’s priority transfer target with United close to agreeing a £70m fee with Barcelona.

United are yet to convince the 25-year-old to move to Old Trafford but with his priority on staying at the Camp Nou.

Ajax defender Jurrien Timber is another target but latest reports from the Netherlands suggest the 20-year-old is also skeptical about joining United this summer.
