Tottenham contract rebel Christian Eriksen has reportedly turned down advance from English side Manchester United. The Red Devils had tried unsuccessfully to sign him in the summer and are said to be interested in a January transfer for the midfielder.
Eriksen is into the last six months of his contract and could be available for a cut-price of £20million for teams in England. However the Denmark international is said to be more interested in making a move out of England
From January, Eriksen would be free to speak to teams outside the EPL and the likes of Juventus and Real Madrid have been linked with the player. The Danish playmaker believes that moving on a free in the summer would provide better options for him than a move in January.
Tottenham have not entirely given up hope in trying to convince the midfielder with manager Jose Mourinho recently speaking on the need to keep the midfielder. Despite this, the club are looking to sell in the winter transfer window than risk losing him on a free transfer.
Manchester United are in dire need of a quality midfielder to supplement Paul Pogba and the news of Eriksen rejection strikes a major blow for the club.
