Manchester United Are Willing To Triple Christian Eriksen’s Wages To Land Him This Summer

Manchester United are preparing to make a tempting offer to Christian Eriksen after it has been reported that his wages would be tripled if he moves to Old Trafford this summer.

The 27-year-old Danish attacking midfielder's current deal with Tottenham Hotspur is set to expire at the end of the following season, with Spurs struggling to tie him down to a new deal.

According to the Daily Mirror, the Red Devils are reportedly set to increase his wages to £240,000 a week, which would be a significant rise on the £80,000 a week that he earns at Spurs.

The newspaper reports that United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær has already been in discussions with the club's executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, over transfer targets this summer.

Eriksen, who has also been linked with Real Madrid and Inter Milan, is part of the 46-year-old Norwegian's plans to overhaul the squad in the summer.

The Mirror added that 'senior figures' at the club believe that the Denmark international won't sign a new deal unless his wages match the £200,000 that Harry Kane is currently on.

The Spurs star's arrival at Old Trafford would also help to bolster the squad should Paul Pogba leave the club in the summer for Los Blancos.

Speaking of Pogba, the 26-year-old United midfielder scored a brace in his side's 2-1 win against West Ham United on Saturday at Old Trafford.

The World Cup-winning Frenchman, whose form has improved significantly since the arrival of Solskjær at the club, revealed after the match why he decided to change his run-up technique for penalties.

It was an emotional return for former United striker Javier Hernández, who received a standing ovation from the Old Trafford faithful and shared a touching message with Red Devils supporters after the match.
