Eriksen has struggled to find his best form at Man Utd in the 2023/24 season, having only started nine games in the Premier League, seven of which he was substituted in.

He’s spent the rest of the campaign sat on the bench so it’s no surprise that he’ll move on, particularly when you also consider the addition of a fully fit Mason Mount and the rise of young teenager, Kobbie Mainoo.

Not forgetting, of course, that new signings will be certain to come in during the upcoming window. The Dane’s current contract runs out in 2025.

Will Christian Eriksen head to the Euros?

This news comes after former Everton and Real Madrid midfielder Thomas Gravesen blasted Christian Eriksen’s inclusion in the latest Denmark squad.

Eriksen has hardly played this campaign, with only two of his outings coming this year.

Gravesen said via Tipsbladet: “It is completely scandalous that he has not selected Nicolai Vallys. It’s a scandal of great proportions that we have a national coach who looks so little towards Denmark when there’s a player running around with those qualities.

“When you look at the way he is playing football at the moment. And then they choose to take out a player who has sat on the bench at Manchester United, Christian Eriksen, just to maintain relations.

“The Christian Eriksen we all know, he is no longer there. Christian Eriksen doesn’t play football anymore. Christian Eriksen sits on the bench and watches football. Christian Eriksen as we know him, he is no more. You must not fall back on the fact that you are only selected on merit. One must not single out Christian Eriksen only on his merits.”
