The Dane impressed a lot for Brentford in the Premier League season after the comeback from the cardiac arrest he got in the European Football Championship this summer.
Eriksen signed for the club in January on a short-term contract out of season and has been heavily sought after after his contract with the London club expired.
I add to Brentford, Eriksen’s old club Tottenham have been interested in getting the 30-year-old, but now it seems like Manchester United are running away with the midfielder.
According to The Athletic, the club must be preparing the contract for Eriksen, who must also undergo a medical check before he can possibly sign for the big club.
Plays with defibrillators
Medical check is something all players must undergo before a transfer, but will always be an element of uncertainty for Eriksen. He underwent cardiac arrest after the cardiac arrest in the European Championship match at Denmark’s national arena Parken, against Finland on 12 June last year.
The defibrillator made it impossible for Eriksen to continue playing for Inter in Serie A, with whom he had a contract a year ago. No one gets games with defibrillators in the Italian top division.
In December, Eriksen got his contract with Inter terminated and just after, Eriksen started training with Brentford, which he eventually signed for.
The London club won several matches after Eriksen’s debut against Newcastle on 5 March.
National team happiness
Ten days after returning to the football field, he was taken out of Denmark’s national team squad and on March 26, Eriksen scored two minutes into the national team comeback. It was against the Netherlands in Amsterdam, on the pitch where he played for Ajax early in his career.
Also in his first home game in the Park for Denmark after the cardiac arrest, Eriksen scored. He made it 3-0 for Denmark against Serbia three days after the match against the Netherlands.
Denmark easily qualified for the World Cup in Qatar in November and December. It is expected that Eriksen will be an important piece for the Danish national team in the world championship.
