"Phenomenal" Man Utd star hailed as potential "signing of the season", he was a bargain

Manchester United's Christian Eriksen has been hailed as the "signing of the season", according to one transfer reporter.

Eriksen signed for United on a free in the summer transfer window and has been a vital player in Erik ten Hag's set up at Old Trafford.

The 30-year-old made a remarkable recovery from his cardiac arrest at last year's European Championships and his form at Brentford last season earned him the move to United.

When Ten Hag came to Manchester he was constantly asked about transfers and his response was the same each time: “We know what we want, we not only want new players, we want the right new players."


Dean Jones: He helped them move on from Frenkie de Jong

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Dean Jones, who is a transfer insider, spoke about Eriksen's involvement at United: “I think when you evaluate the value of the player compared to his performance levels, Eriksen has to be a candidate for signing of the season. He helped them move on, too, from the Frenkie de Jong saga.

“He helped bring a style of play and experience and just a level of performance that United hadn’t been capable of before this moment. So, undoubtedly, he has to be considered one of the best signings of the year.”

Eriksen's form has been enough to see him included in the Denmark national team squad for the World Cup in Qatar, which is another testament to his incredible recovery.
