Christian Eriksen is said to have followed Jurrien Timber’s lead and turned down a move to Manchester United, putting Erik ten Hag’s transfer ambitions in jeopardy.
Timber, an Ajax defender, has ruled out a move to Old Trafford after meeting with Holland manager Loui van Gaal. A move to the Premier League, according to the 21-year-old, would jeopardize his prospects of making the Dutch World Cup squad.
After 30-year-old Eriksen turned down a move to United, Ten Hag is said to have received yet another refusal.
According to the Guardian, top target Eriksen has given the Dutch manager “another rejection” and has determined whether to stay at Brentford or return to Tottenham.
Ten Hag’s recruitment goals will be severely harmed by the revelation. According to De Telegraaf, the former Ajax manager was desperate to sign Eriksen and Frenkie de Jong in order to change the style of play at the club.
After a fantastic six-month tenure with Brentford, Manchester United had hoped to persuade the Denmark playmaker to go north.
Eriksen is expected to sign a contract extension with the Bees, but Spurs are also rumored to be interested in his services.
Eriksen is being shunned by Tottenham
According to rumors, Tottenham have snubbed a move for former Inter Milan player, Christian Erikson.
Antonio Conte has expressed his desire to see the midfielder return to Tottenham but Fabio Paratici, according to a report in the UK, has not followed through on his initial interest in the player. Officials from the club are now reportedly “distancing” themselves from the rumors.
Eriksen’s future is rather uncertain as a result of all these speculations.
The Danish international reportedly chose to leave Brentford last week, according to Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla.
Thomas Frank was desperate to keep the playmaker and declared last month that he was ‘convinced’ he would stay. Despite a record-breaking offer, Eriksen chose to take on a new challenge. It’s unclear where that will happen.
Manchester United, on the other hand, will be disappointed that Eriksen, who had an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) implanted after falling at Euro 2020, has turned down their offer.
With departures dominating their transfer business to date, Ten Hag is still hunting for his first signing.
Brentford will not give up the effort to keep Christian Eriksen
Brentford have not given up hope of re-signing Christian Eriksen, despite Tottenham and Manchester United’s interest, according to our sources.
The Bees signed the Dane on a six-month deal at the end of the January transfer window, and he had a huge impact on the team, helping them avoid relegation with a 13th-place finish and 46 points.
The west London club has made it clear that they want Eriksen to stay long-term, despite the fact that he previously stated that he would leave when his contract ends at the end of June, according to 90min.
Brentford, on the other hand, is still pushing for the 30-year-old to stay and has made repeated efforts to re-sign him in recent days.
Thomas Frank, who worked with Eriksen in the Denmark youth system at the start of his career, recently met with the playmaker in person to discuss his future.
