Manchester United fans should get used to a league with Tottenham players, past and present.
The constant rumors tying Mauricio Pochettino to Old Trafford’s hot chair made that inevitable.
On top of that, the Red Devils ’start to the season has been disappointing, even if they are still sitting just three points away from the Champions League places.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has faced the strange riddle that he has a lot of attacking players in his books, and yet still manages to make United look completely uncreated on several occasions.
This happened again in Saturday’s 0-0 draw against rivals Manchester City.
United countries have largely added another forward who can play, hence their prolonged summer chase by Jadon Sancho, which has ultimately wiped out.
One other option is to approach a player who would play behind Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood.
According to The Sun, this has led to United considering access to former Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen, who is enduring a totally miserable spell at Inter Milan.
The Dane signed for the Nerazzuri only 11 months ago, but has already disagreed with Antonio Conte.
Eriksen made a total of 37 appearances and scored four goals. In this term, he is limited to only 274 minutes in Serie A.
Saying when it really matters – as in last season’s Europa League final – he stayed on the bench.
Inter signed the 28-year-old for just £ 17 million, a discounted discount as he had just 18 months off his Spurs contract. Jose Mourinho also gave Eriksen limited playing time due to his reluctance to transfer his future to the club.
According to Transfermarkt, he is now worth £ 45 million.
According to the same report, it seems that Inter were also keen on an exchange deal when they initially tackled the issue with fellow Arsenal fans.
It is unclear what form a possible deal with United would take, but Solskjaer is clearly already looking at reinforcements in his attacking midfield in light of renewed doubt about Paul Pogba’s future.
