With endless and ongoing speculation linking Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen with a departure away from White Hart Lane this summer, whilst rumours linking him with a move to Manchester United certainly aren’t new, they continue to be novel and one report over the weekend claimed that a move to Old Trafford was now back on.
With plenty more focusing on Eriksen’s words about a new challenge and something ‘more exciting’ and not his words about being happy to stay, there is a fair old element of the rumour mill feeding itself and with all the Paul Pogba to Real suggestions, the Mirror wrapped all those existing claims up into one easy piece and rehashed that his move to the Santiago Bernabeu had down ‘collapsed’ so instead his move to United was now back on.
There are some fresh claims (however, believability has to be questionable) and they state that the 27-year-old had long decided it was time to move on, and that he’s packed up from his London home ahead of the Champions League Final, such was his sureness that he would be moving to Madrid.
The claim naturally leans on Eden Hazard’s arrival at the club and continuing Pogba claims, but Juventus also now feature.
To end the report nicely they even link us once more with a move for Crystal Palace talent Wilfried Zaha.
In a shirt on somebodies pitch remains the only true barometer at this time of year – especially if you fancy staying sane.
