I rejected Man Utd three times – Eriksen reveals


New Manchester United midfielder, Christian Eriksen, has claimed he rejected the club three times in the past before joining this summer.

According to Eriksen, United have always been interested since when he was at Tottenham Hotspur.

The Denmark international signed a three-year contract with the Red Devils and made his first start for Erik ten Hag’s side in a 1-1 draw with Rayo Vallecano in a pre-season friendly on Sunday.

But he has revealed he could have moved to Old Trafford years earlier and had conversations with United managers Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

“I’ve spoken to every manager who’s been here at Man United to see what the situation was.

But I was at Spurs at the time and I really couldn’t see myself playing in another English team at that time. I went abroad and went to Inter.

“It’s been on the books, well, not on the books but it’s been spoken about. For me, it wasn’t the [right] timing, it wasn’t there and I was at a place at Spurs for a long time and I wanted to try something abroad and I went to Inter and ended up having a lovely time,” Eriksen said.
