Manchester United have joined the pursuit of Christian Eriksen as the out-of-contract midfielder weighs up his next move.

The Denmark international is a free agent after seeing out his short-term deal at Brentford.

New United manager Erik ten Hag has made midfield his priority area in his first transfer window at Old Trafford, with Frenkie de Jong his leading target.

It is not clear if Ten Hag sees Eriksen as an alternative or a compliment to De Jong.

Talks have been held with his representatives, amid interest from Newcastle and Tottenham.

Brentford were also hopeful of signing the 30-year-old to a long-term deal after his successful spell there last season.

United tried to sign Eriksen when he left Tottenham in 2019 – but abandoned their interest after he made it clear he wanted to move to Inter Milan.
