    The rumour is he was coming to us weeks ago but asked for more money after man utd’s offer which tinkled off the club and told him we are not increasing it.

    Can’t really see what he takes to United that Bruno doesn’t … got rotational option. Let’s hope he takes their corners for them.

    I'm intrigued how Man U line up with him as him and Penandes would need a beast in there to win the ball back and they definitely don't have one there at the moment.

    Totally understand if he's been guaranteed more playing time there due to how we line up and our new found depth, hard to imagine that being a reason to miss put on a player to Man U in the prem era though!

    Eriksen is a better player than Fernandes, and far, far, far less of a prima Donna!

    Good move for us, bad move for him imho.

    Unlike Fernandes he can play in multipe roles/positions.

    I would be concerned about the lack of balance. How good of a signing Eriksen is will depend on their other business.

    Eesh. Various reports going around of us being Eriksen's preferred destination but the club not wanting him enough.

    I think this one's going to come back to bite us. Suddenly United have an attacking midfielder who knows how to press and always brings out the best in the players around him.

    The old Toby move that allegedly tinkled us off in the past.

    I don't think so. Getting rid of Paul 'I'm so full of myself that I can't be bothered to actually do my job' Pogba and Christiano 'I don't care about anything but myself' Ronaldo, will have sorted most of their problems.

    It's tough to tell. I don't think money would have been that high on his list of priorities (besides all offers would have required a wheelbarrow each week). It was then rumoured he wanted to stay in London and would surely of preferred to be in the CL. Both ticked with us. So?, playing time? our formation not perfectly suited? Perhaps Conte didn't charm him enough 1.as he already knows him 2. Because Conte himself couldn't really say what the plan for him was.

    Personally I'd of gone for him. He's clever. Provides an instant easy formation change, and likely zero settling in/up to speed problems.

    That was what I was intending to imply. Penandes would start most games as a ten so if Eriksen played CM I think they would be exposed centrally when they don't have the ball based on their current options.

    Eriksen will say it was always United as he wanted a 'new challenge'
    We will say he was never really under consideration.
    The Internet will say he was greedy / we didn't make a decent offer depending on what agenda is being met!

    Eriksen can play wide too, like he did for us. More of a wide starting position, definitely not a winger. But there's potential there to make himself useful alongside Fernandes. If they get other signings right. I hope they don't.

    Eriksen left, sancho right, bruno in the middle and someone up top. With ronaldo I think that would be really good, with Rashford a bit toothless.
