Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen will NOT be sold to Manchester United this summer, reports suggest.
The future of the Dane has been a hot topic this summer, with both United and Real Madrid strongly linked with a move for the playmaker over the past couple of months.
The 27-year-old admitted in June that he wants to leave Spurs this summer for a ‘new challenge’ – and Real were believed to be interested in striking a deal to bring him to LaLiga.
Recent reports suggested Spurs reduced their asking price for foreign clubs to just £50million – or £60m for English clubs – in a bid to sell Eriksen before his contract expires next summer.
Eriksen has made it clear that he would be open to joining the Spanish giants, but he is not the club’s first-choice target as Zinedine Zidane continues to prioritise a move for Man United’s Paul Pogba.
However, reports show Spurs are not willing to cash in on the Denmark international this window and he will therefore remain with the club until at least January.
Meanwhile, our sources also understand Philippe Coutinho will not move on loan to Spurs this window, with the Brazil midfielder said to be keen on remaining at Barcelona to fight for his place in Ernesto Valverde’s first-team.
