Christian Eriksen is one of Manchester United’s manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer priority signings this summer, according to reports.
The Tottenham midfielder is wanted by Real Madrid this summer window after establishing himself as one of the best playmakers in the world in recent years.
Eriksen would jump at the opportunity to join Real and has so far given no assurances he will sign a new contract with Tottenham.
The Mirror claim Ole Solskjaer has spoken to Ed Woodward about signing the Denmark international and United are prepared to triple his current wages.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is known to be difficult to negotiate with, but United feel Eriksen’s reluctance to sign a new deal and Real’s focus on other targets could help them secure a deal.
Eriksen enters the final year of his deal in the summer and Real Madrid are prioritising the signings of Eden Hazard and Paul Pogba.
United would be willing to offer Eriksen a £240,000-a-week deal, a very significant increase on the £80,000 a week he currently receives at Tottenham.
If Tottenham are willing to sell, United believe they would demand around £95m for Eriksen.
Levy would not want to lose Eriksen on a free next year and figures within the club’s board are growing increasingly concerned he will run down his contract.
Tottenham have begun the process of searching a replacement for Eriksen, with the likes of Leicester City’s James Maddison on their wish list.
