Christian Eriksen Set To Make Man United Debut In Covert Friendly Against Wrexham

Christian Eriksen Set To Make Man United Debut In Covert Friendly Against Wrexham

Christian Eriksen signed a three-year contract with United earlier this month, allowing United to finalize his free transfer.

Under new manager Erik ten Hag, the 30-year-old was United’s second acquisition of the summer, but he did not travel with his team on their recent preseason tour of Australia and Thailand.

Christian Eriksen might play for Manchester United against non-league Wrexham in a friendly.

The Red Devils have two more official friendlies before the new Premier League season begins next month after returning from their preseason tour of Thailand and Australia.

A reserve team will play Rayo Vallecano at Old Trafford the next day, after Erik ten Hag’s team plays at Atletico Madrid in Oslo on Saturday.

However, it has now come to light that a scheduled behind-closed-doors exhibition game against a National League team might mark Eriksen’s debut in a United uniform.

According to reports, the game will be played on Wednesday at United’s Carrington training center.

The Manchester Evening News reports that Ten Hag expects to use several senior players in the match, with those who require playing time before the new season likely to be featured.

It was initially thought that the game would be against a United youth team.

The 30-year-old Eriksen, who joined the team this summer after making an impression in the second part of last season with top-flight newcomers Brentford, may be one of them.

Since his arrival, he has yet to appear for United, so the friendly against Phil Parkinson’s team would be the ideal chance for him to make his debut.

The international from Denmark did not travel with his new team on their recent preseason tour, but on Monday, he was spotted in Manchester.

The former Tottenham and Inter Milan midfielder, who has signed a three-year deal with the team, said: “I am eager to start playing for Manchester United because it is a wonderful team.

Although I have enjoyed playing at Old Trafford many times, it will be an incredible sensation to do it while wearing the red shirt of United.

I still have big goals for the game, and I know I can accomplish a lot. This is the ideal setting to carry on my adventure.”

Under the management of Hollywood A-listers Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, Wrexham have big intentions.

They lost in the play-off semifinals last year, preventing them from being promoted.

A handful of senior players are expected to participate in Wednesday’s friendly match between United and National League team Wrexham.

On August 7, United’s new era under the Dutchman kicks off. United will host Brighton at Old Trafford to kick off their Premier League season.
