Manchester United Sign Christian Eriksen On 3-Year Contract

Manchester United have completed the signing of Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen on a free transfer.

The former Ajax, Tottenham, Inter Milan and Brentford player has signed a three-year contract at Old Trafford.

Earlier in July, Eriksen agreed in principle to sign for United after his short-term contract at Brentford ended in June.

He is United’s second signing under new manager Erik ten Hag after Netherlands full-back Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord.

“I still have major ambitions in the game.

There is a huge amount that I know I can achieve, and this is the perfect place to continue my journey.”

Manchester United is a special club, and I cannot wait to get started.”

Eriksen, who returned to football after having an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) fitted following his cardiac arrest at last summer’s Euros, could have returned to Brentford.

He joined the Bees in January after being released by Inter Milan because players who have an ICD fitted are not allowed to play in Serie A.

In addition, his former club Tottenham were interested in re-signing him this summer.

But Eriksen, who signed for Spurs in 2013, opted for United after talks with Ten Hag.

“I have seen Erik’s work at Ajax and know the level of detail and preparation that he and his staff put into every day.”

“It is clear that he is a fantastic coach.

“Having spoken with him and learned more about his vision and the way he wants the team to play, I am even more excited for the future.”

Eriksen has scored 52 goals and provided 66 assists in 237 Premier League appearances for Tottenham and Brentford.

He will not fly to Australia for the final two games of United’s pre-season tour, but will link up with his new team-mates before their trip to Oslo on 30 July, where they will face Atletico Madrid.

Meanwhile, it is understood talks to complete the signing of Argentina defender Lisandro Martinez from Ajax are progressing well.

However, a deal is yet to be done for the 24-year-old.

Eriksen Reveals What He Told His Wife After He Suffered A Heart Scare At Euro 2020,

Former Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen is back in professional football, having signed with Brentford during the January transfer window.

The Danish professional footballer suffered a heart scare at Euro 2020,

and had an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) device fitted.

He is allowed to play in the UK, something the device prevented him from doing in Italy.

He is excited to be back, even if he previously told his wife Sabrina that he might retire.

Eriksen said in an interview:

“Even with this condition, there are no limits,”

“You can run a marathon, deep-dive swimming or whatever.

It just depends on the diagnosis and how you feel about it.

“I told Sabrina I’d leave my boots, but also to not be surprised if in a few days I’d change my mind if everything was OK.

Luckily, it’s been OK.

“For me, normal was getting back to playing in Italy, but I wasn’t allowed to do this.

“So the normal had to change. We have the chance to get back to a normal life at Brentford.”

“Condition-wise and strength-wise I am in a very good place,” he said.

“It’s just the football touch that needs to come back and get up to speed.

We’ll see how my body reacts, but I feel very good.”
