LONDON – Manchester United are working to sign Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen before the transfer window closes on Thursday.
Representatives of Eriksen are hopeful of negotiating a move, and those close to the 27-year-old Dane revealed yesterday that he is at the top of United’s list.
United are working to finalise their incomings, but they will have until September 2 to negotiate sales, including that of Paul Pogba, to foreign clubs.
That is because the windows in Germany, Italy, Spain and France shut more than three weeks after England’s.
Tottenham are hopeful of striking a deal for Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes – another one-time United target – before Thursday.
