CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN has reportedly rejected a move to Manchester United.
It is understood the Old Trafford club made advances to sign the Tottenham star.
But according to journalist Tom McDermott, the Denmark international and his team have given a clear “no”. Instead, Eriksen, 27, would prefer a move to Spain.
Both Real Madrid and Barcelona have been linked with potential attempts to sign him this summer after another fine season under Mauricio Pochettino.
His contract runs out in 12 months and he has openly admitted he could be tempted to “try something new”.
The Champions League finalist told Danish magazine Ekstra Bladet: “I feel like I am in a place in my career where I might want to try something new.
“I have the wildest and deepest respect for everything that has happened at Tottenham. “But I have also said that I would like to try something new.
“I hope there will be clarification during the summer, that’s the plan.
“In football, you do not know when clarification comes. It can happen at any time.
“[It is] best if it happens as soon as possible, but in football things take time.”
