Manchester United have asked to be kept informed of Christian Eriksen’s situation at Tottenham Hotspur, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mail is reporting that Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is interested in signing a creative midfielder in the summer transfer window to add more flair to his team.

The same article states that the Red Devils have emerged as genuine contenders to sign the Denmark international despite Eriksen having been previously linked with FC Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.

According to the same story, Solskjaer’s interest in Eriksen isn’t dependent on Paul Pogba being sold to Juventus or Real Madrid in a £150m deal this summer.

The Daily Mail go on to add that the Norwegian head coach wants to “craft” to his team to blend with the “pace and energy” already present in the Man United squad.

Eriksen has established himself as one of the Premier League’s best playmakers since his move to Tottenham from Dutch giants Ajax in the 2013 summer transfer window.

The Danish star was part of the Spurs team that reached the Champions League final last season before a disappointing 2-0 loss to Liverpool FC in the Madrid showpiece.

Eriksen has scored 66 times in 276 games in all competitions for the north London side.
