Christian Eriksen’s remarkable story continues with a move to Old Trafford.
According to The Athletic’s David Ornstein, the 30-year-old midfielder has agreed to a three-year contract with Manchester United.
Once Eriksen officially signs the deal and completes an all-important medical, the Danish international will become one of the first signings of the summer for the club.
One year ago, a move to one of Europe’s biggest clubs would have been hardly believable after Eriksen’s collapse on the field due to a cardiac arrest at the Euros. The Danish star needed to be resuscitated on the field before he was transported to a hospital.
After reportedly turning down a return to Brentford, Eriksen will join Manchester United on a free transfer after the club lost Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard among other midfielders.
The attacking midfielder is set to become one of the first signings under new manager Erik ten Hag, while the club is also reportedly close to a deal for Feyenoord left back Tyrell Malacia.
