Man United, Chelsea vie for Eriksen as Real drop interest
Tottenham star Christian Eriksen is wanted man. With his contract running out in June 2020, the 26-year-old has attracted the attention of almost every major club in Europe.
It was generally assumed that Real Madrid would get their man (as they usually do when it comes to Tottenham players). Not so, say the Daily Express which reports that Manchester United and Chelsea are keen to keep the Denmark midfielder in the Premier League and have “been boosted” by reports that Real have dropped their interest.
Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are still in the running, but United and Chelsea will feel confident of fending off the competition if Eriksen does choose to leave Tottenham.
