Eriksen choosing between Man Utd and Brentford

Christian Eriksen is understood to be deciding between whether to join Manchester United or stay at Brentford.

Both clubs have made the 30-year-old appealing offers - but United's is thought to be more financially lucrative.

Eriksen worked with Erik ten Hag when he trained with Ajax as part of his his return to football following his horrifying collapse while playing for Denmark at Euro 2020. Teaming up again as part of United's anticipated new era has its attractions.

But sources close to the midfielder, whose short-term contract at Brentford expires at the end of June, say he and his family are settled in London and have reservations about relocating to the North West.

Eriksen also wants to start every game to be sure of a place in Denmark's World Cup team later this year - his priority after missing out on the Euros because of his cardiac arrest in the first game.

He is unlikely to re-sign for Tottenham, who primarily play with two central midfielders under Antonio Conte and have committed to both Rodrigo Bentancur and Yves Bissouma this year.

Eriksen's comfort in London, that money is not his priority, and the strength of his relationships with people at Brentford, which include a number of his Denmark team-mates and the Danish head coach Thomas Frank, puts the club in a strong position.
