Man United in talks with PSG, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid over loan signing
| Last updated
Manchester United are reportedly in talks with FOUR European giants over a potential late deadline day loan switch.
The Red Devils have brought in both Jack Butland and Wout Weghorst on loan and it looked as though their transfer business would be done.
However, summer signing Christian Eriksen suffered an injury in the 3-1 FA Cup fourth round win over Reading following a challenge from Andy Carroll on Saturday evening.
The Dane was spotted leaving Old Trafford in crutches and the club have since confirmed he will be out of action until late April or early May.
With games coming thick and fast, United are now on a hunt to sign a midfielder on loan before the transfer window slams shut.
And according to Jason Burt from The Telegraph, United have made contact with Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain as they try and sign an Eriksen replacement.
The word was that United have been left "frustrated" so far, although there is still time for a deal to be done.

United have been heavily linked with Bayern Munich's Marcel Sabitzer and according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the club are in discussions over personal terms for the Austria international.
As per BILD journalist Christian Falk, Sabitzer did not train with Bayern today and United are now the only club in the race to sign him after Chelsea shifted their focus elsewhere.
Sabitzer's target Ryan Gravenberch was also touted as a potential target, as was Atletico Madrid midfielder Yannick Carrasco.
Manager Erik ten Hag discussed Eriksen's injury blow and the possibility of making another signing in a press conference ahead of the Nottingham Forest Carabao Cup semi-final second leg.
“It's quite clear Christian brings top quality to our squad and he has some specifics that are hard to replace, such as his impacts in the final third with his final ball," he said in his press conference.
"On deadline day it's difficult. You can't make policy on such bad injuries, but we have players in the midfield department, good players, so we have players who can fill the gap."
