Christian Eriksen, a free agent from Denmark, has agreed to join Manchester United on a one-year deal.
Brentford terminated the 30-year-contract old’s last month.
There has been talking of Eriksen returning to Thomas Frank’s squad.
But the allure of playing for Manchester United ultimately won out.
Eriksen’s Old Trafford medical is still pending, but he is anticipating agreeing to a three-year contract.
With Feyenoord defender Tyrell Malacia scheduled to get a medical at Carrington ahead of his move to United, Eriksen might be the new manager Erik ten Hag’s second signing of the summer transfer window.
Once released by Inter Milan, the Dane returned to the Premier League in January by joining Brentford.
It was after his heart attack at Euro 2020 that he had an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) installed.
The Serie A does not allow players with implantable cardiac devices (ICDs) to compete.
Brentford manager and fellow Dane Frank’s offer to Eriksen, as well as his family’s desire to remain in London, are said to have complicated Eriksen’s choice to not re-sign with the Bees.
But he has finally settled on United.
There was interest from Eriksen’s old club Tottenham Hotspur, whom he played for from 2013 to 2020, but the club has instead concentrated on other priorities.
