Christian Eriksen: Manchester United told they will have to cough up at least £60m for Tottenham playmaker

The Red Devils are planning a massive overhaul of the squad, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hugely dissatisfied with his current crop following their barren run of form in which they have recorded seven defeats in nine matches.

Eriksen, 27, has one year left on a contract that earns him a reported £70,000-a-week, but has been stalling on signing a new deal amid interest from LaLiga giants Real Madrid.

Los Blancos were reportedly weighing up a £100m bid to acquire his services at the turn of the year – and according to the Evening Standard, United are now thought to have joined the race for his signature.

Getting Eriksen to sign a new deal could be vital to any hopes Spurs have of bringing silverware to the club as he has once again been crucial this season, racking up seven goals and 12 assists in 32 league matches.
