Manchester United have reached a verbal agreement with Christian Eriksen over a move to Old Trafford  in this summer's transfer window, according to reports.

The 30 year-old has been a free agent since the end of his Brentford contract.

The Denmark international has been linked with a number of clubs this summer, including a return to Spurs, but has opted to team up with Erik ten Hag.

And according to The Athletic  Eriksen, who returned to the Premier League in January following his collapse on the pitch at Euro 2020 after suffering a cardiac arrest, is now set to move after 'verbally agreeing' to move to Old Trafford.

The Athletic claim Eriksen has told United he wants to join them and is prepared to accept their offer of a three-year deal, believed to include an offer of a weekly salary of £150,000-a-week.

Having been fitted with a cardioverter-defibrillator he was unable to continue to play for Inter Milan due to Serie A rules.

His fine form for Brentford has persuaded United to strike a deal for the 30-year-old.

United are now in the process of drafting up a formal contract and, if that is finalised, he will then undergo a medical. 

Leicester, Everton and Tottenham have all also been linked with the playmaker in recent weeks.
