Christian Eriksen, who had an outstanding comeback to top football with Brentford last season, is in high demand and is expected to make a choice at the end of the month.
Christian Eriksen allegedly prefers to stay in the Premier League over moving abroad for the upcoming season.
While on vacation, Eriksen is considering the contract offers from the three teams vying for his services: Brentford, Tottenham, and Manchester United.
After a spectacular comeback for Brentford in the second part of the 2021–2022 season, the 30-year-old midfielder is in great demand.
With Brentford’s current offer, Eriksen will become the highest-paid player at the club. The allure of Champions League play and a return to Spurs, though, might be too great to resist.
After experiencing a heart attack while playing for Denmark against Finland at Euro 2020 last summer, Eriksen has made an incredible return to the top level of football.
He signed a short-term contract with the Bees in January, and in the 11 Premier League games he started, he contributed to seven victories for Thomas Frank’s team.
He is eligible for a free transfer starting on July 1 but hasn’t decided on his future because he’s still recovering following his involvement in Denmark’s four Nations League games.
Although the Daily Mail says that he has received interest and offers from clubs outside of England, he prefers to remain in the Premier League.
With the offers to stay at Brentford, return to Tottenham, where he played from 2013 to 2020, or work with Erik ten Hag at United, Eriksen is extremely at ease with the situation.
After Denmark defeated Austria 2-0 on Monday, he told reporters, “There are numerous criteria and many different aspects inside such a judgment.
Football sometimes moves quickly and other times a little more slowly. You can not manage it on your own. I have to choose well and take my time with everything.
My phone is always on, but I am aware that my agency rarely calls unless there is an interesting development.”
Eriksen appreciated his time at Brentford, where he played with several other Danes and for a manager named Frank, who is also Danish.
He received a contract offer from the Bees at the beginning of June, which would make him the team’s highest-paid player.
However, the appeal of Champions League soccer and a return to Spurs may be too alluring to resist.
Under Antonio Conte, Tottenham finished fourth last season, and lately, Eriksen said he would “love” to participate in Europe’s premier club competition once more.
He told Viaplay, “I have several offers and choices, which we are reviewing, and then we will make a decision.
I would like to return to Champions League football. Although I am aware of how much pleasure it is, I don’t need it.”
Eriksen is a favorite of United manager Ten Hag, who had a close-up look at him when he trained with Ajax’s reserve team last year in an effort to get fit before joining Brentford.
Ten Hag’s top target is Frenkie de Jong of Barcelona, but Old Trafford desperately needs midfielders with the departures of Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata, and Jesse Lingard at the end of June.
