Real Madrid's plan B Eriksen close to Manchester United move
It's hardly a charm offensive but Madrid have apparently told the Dane he's their alternative to Paul Pogba while Bayern are insisting on Leroy Sané.
After breaking the world-record fee for a defender, Manchester United do not appear to be done just yet.
With Harry Maguire joining Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James at Old Trafford, a London-based Dane could make the move to Manchester.
It could also lead to an in-demand Portuguese midfielder swapping Sporting CP for Tottenham.
TOP STORY – UNITED MAKE LAST-DITCH ERIKSEN MOVE
Manchester United are hoping to sign Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen before Thursday's deadline, according to the Daily Mail.
Eriksen is reluctant to renew his contract – which expires in 2020 – with Tottenham and United are looking to lure the Denmark international to Manchester prior to the transfer window closing.
If Eriksen, who has also been linked to Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Juventus, leaves Tottenham then he could be replaced with Sporting CP captain Bruno Fernandes.
Portugal international Fernandes has long been tipped to join United.
