Man Utd could reportedly have been handed a significant boost to their hopes of sealing the transfer of Tottenham star Christian Eriksen.
The Denmark international midfielder is in the final few months of his contract at Spurs and has been heavily linked with several top European sides in recent times.
Latest transfer gossip suggested Christian Eriksen could be on his way to Inter Milan, but that now seems in some doubt as Antonio Conte is considering pulling out of the contract, according to Corriere Della Sera, as translated by Sport Witness.
It’s stated in the report that Antonio Conte wants signings with Serie A experience and could put the Christian Eriksen transfer on hold until he becomes a free agent in the summer.
The 27-year-old midfielder has also been linked with Man Utd, though, with the Daily Mirror among the numerous sources to state he’s a target for the Red Devils.
This makes sense as Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could clearly do with more creativity in his side after some underwhelming attacking plays for so much of this season.
The Red Devils have also been linked with similar players in the form of James Maddison and Bruno Fernandes, both of whom have been mentioned as possible alternatives to Christian Eriksen by Goal.
Still, if Inter Milan are no longer making Christian Eriksen a top priority for this January, that could hand Man Utd a significant boost to their hopes of snapping him up.
Tottenham Hotspur would presumably rather sell Christian Eriksen now instead of risking losing him for nothing at the end of the campaign, and club chief Daniel Levy recently revealed he wasn’t too worried about selling critical players to Premier League rivals.
“We are honestly not scared to trade with our rivals,” Levy recently told the Evening Standard when asked about possibly letting Eriksen join a rival.
Christian Eriksen has been a top performer in his time in north London and seems an ideal signing for Manchester United if they can pull it off.
