‘They were very early on’ – Former Tottenham icon revealed how close he was to Spurs return


Christian Eriksen revealed that a return to Spurs was never considered this transfer window, informs the Evening Standard.

The North London team has been heavily linked with the Danish midfielder since his contract expiration with Brentford, but the player revealed that Manchester United were the first contenders to sign him.

In an interview to MEN, where he was asked about a possible move to the Spurs, he said: “It was just talk.”

”They never really came with anything so it wasn’t really a thing for me to go back to Tottenham at the time and Man United were very early on, very positive and I had good conversations. ”

“It was very positive from the first few phone calls already and the club felt like they wanted me, so it was on for a long time.”
