The Denmark international is a free agent after his contract at Brentford expired last week.

Christian Eriksen has agreed in principle to join Manchester United on a free transfer from Brentford.

That’s according to The Athletic. The report claims Eriksen has told Manchester United he wants to play at Old Trafford. He is, therefore, ready to put pen to paper on a three-year contract offer.

The Red Devils will now finalize the agreement, and once that is complete, Eriksen will then undergo a medical.

The 30-year-old midfielder, of course, carries an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator after suffering a cardiac arrest on the pitch of a Euro 2020 match between Denmark and Finland last summer.

This forced him to leave Inter Milan as rules in Italy prevent the use of such a device. To resume his career, he continued to train throughout last winter and spent part of it at Ajax – who were then coached by the new United manager Erik ten Hag.

Eriksen later signed a six-month deal with Brentford in January and impressed the Premier League club, managing one goal and four assists in 11 appearances.
