Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not be deterred by the club’s failure to land the 27-year-old Dane in the summer window.
Eriksen claimed he wanted a “new challenge” at the end of last season and a dream move to Real Madrid was his desired outcome.
But the move fell through before the Spanish transfer window slammed shut yesterday, paving the way for United to swoop again in January.
Solskjaer’s side have lacked a creative spark this season with Jesse Lingard – the man Eriksen would likely replace – having failed to contribute a single Premier League goal or assist in 2019.
And United have managed just three goals in their last three games and Solskjaer thinks Eriksen can be the creative spark his team currently lack – especially as his fellow Scandinavian is in his peak years.
The Red Devils were interested in the playmaker all summer and were willing to pay around £70million in a deal Spurs were keen on.
