Christian Eriksen has verbally agreed to join Manchester United as a free agent. The 30-year-old playmaker impressed after signing for Brentford on a short-term deal in January which sparked interest from a number of clubs.
The Bees had been hopeful of convincing Eriksen to stay in West London and had offered him a new deal.
But SunSport understands the Danish international has now made the decision to join Manchester United.
He is set to pen a three-year deal at Old Trafford.
Eriksen is said to have informed United of his desire to join the club, with the midfielder now set for a medical.
His contract also needs to be finalised after agreeing to join the club in principle.
Tottenham had been rumoured to be interested in resigning Eriksen but after their interest cooled it has been a two-horse race between United and Brentford for his signature.
Eriksen is now set to join up with boss Erik ten Hag.
The playmaker worked with the United boss briefly when he trained with Ajax before making his comeback to football with the Bees earlier this year.
Bookmakers Betfair have now suspended betting on Eriksen to join United.
Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said: “We have suspended betting on Manchester United to sign Christian Eriksen this summer following a flurry of bets this morning.
“United were odds-on at 4/9 to sign the Danish midfielder before the market was suspended.
“Eriksen could have quite the impact with United 5/4 third favourites to finish in the top four, behind Tottenham and Chelsea at 4/6.
“In addition, Man United are 15/8 to win at least one major trophy next season and they are 25/1 to win the Premier League.”
Eriksen played just 11 times for Brentford after penning a short-term deal – scoring once and providing four assists.
He is now set to follow left-back Tyrell Malacia through the doors at Old Trafford.
