Manchester United 'Working To Complete' Deal For Tottenham's Christian Eriksen
Manchester United are trying to sign Tottenham's Christian Eriksen before Thursday's transfer deadline.
Eriksen's representatives are hopeful of striking a deal with United with the player at the top of the club's transfer wish list, according to Daily Mail.
He could be on his way out for just £50 million, a year on from his £130 million price tag.
It remains to be seen whether Eriksen is potentially Paul Pogba's replacement. The Frenchman has been the subject of intense transfer speculation with reports linking him with a move to Real Madrid.

The Denmark international, meanwhile, has just one year left on his current contract with the creative-midfielder expressing his desire to take on a new challenge at the end of last season.
"I feel that I am at a stage of my career where I would like to try something new," he told Ekstra Bladet.
"I have the deepest respect for everything that is happening at Tottenham and it would not be something negative to stay. But I have also said that I would like to try something new.
"I hope that something will be decided this summer. That is the plan. In football you never know when there could be a decision like that. It could be at any point. The best thing is always for it to happen quickly, but in football things take time."
The 27-year-old has enjoyed six seasons at Spurs, but he hasn't won a trophy during his time in England.
United remain in the market for new talent following the summer arrivals of Daniel James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and, most recently, Harry Maguire who joined the club for £80 million from Leicester City.

Spurs, on the other hand, continue to be linked with new players in the shape of Sporting CP's Bruno Fernandes and Real Betis' Giovani Lo Celso.
The North London outfit have already recruited Tanguy Ndombele for a club record £55 million as well as Jack Clarke.
The transfer window is hotting up ahead of Thursday's deadline.
