Manchester United could sign Christian Eriksen in January for less than half of Tottenham’s valuation of the midfielder last summer.
The Dane intimated last summer that he would not renew his deal in north London, which is set to expire in July 2020.
Tottenham slapped a £80m price tag on the midfielder and United made a late attempt to sign Eriksen with around 72 hours remaining in the window.
United couldn’t get a deal over the line and Spurs hoped that Jose Mourinho ’s arrival would persuade Eriksen to sign a new deal at the club.
However, Eriksen reiterated his desire to leave last week and he’s said to be ‘attracted’ by the prospect of moving to a club like United, though his preference remains to leave England.
The Evening Standard claim Spurs would have reluctantly sold Eriksen to United last summer and their position hasn’t changed ahead of the January window.
But Spurs are realistic about their situation and it’s claimed they’d now accept a figure less than £40m for Eriksen should United come calling again.
