Over the course of the last week, Manchester United fans were truly given a taste of the incredible as transfer rumors kept piling in. The most sumptuous of the sagas involved the possibility of Paulo Dybala coming to Old Trafford in exchange for Romelu Lukaku heading to Juventus.
While the Lukaku saga still remains at large, it is understood that the Dybala aspect of the deal may not develop in the few days that remain.
Likewise, some of the other quickfire players the Red Devils were linked to, including signings that have been hyped the whole summer, also now appear to be in some doubt.
Despite all of that, the club may still make a massive late signing.
According to Sky Sports, Manchester United are considering a late move for Christian Eriksen from Tottenham Hotspur. While these murmurs have been doing the rounds for a while now, there is now an added dimension to the saga- Paul Pogba.
Initially, it was assumed that the Danish midfielder would be signed as the replacement for Pogba who appeared Real Madrid bound. Interestingly, Eriksen was also on Los Blancos’ wishlist in the event they failed to sign Pogba.
Now, this latest claims marries these past two rumors in an interesting way.
According to the report, Eriksen moving to Old Trafford will not be dependent on whether or not Pogba stays after deadline day. On that matter, the source was also adamant that United are confident of retaining the highly-rated Frenchman.
This certainly seems to indicate that Zinedine Zidane and company will miss out on both the Premier League talents.
Eriksen has made it clear that he wants to move away from Spurs this summer. Now it remains to be seen as to how the Mancunian giants are able to hammer out a reasonable deal this late into the window.
