It was gathered that Eriksen worked with new Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag when the tactician trained Ajax.

Ten Hag was also said to have helped the player return to football following his horrifying collapse while playing for Denmark at Euro 2020; so there is a possibility of him reuniting with the coach, Mirror reports.

Sources say the midfielder is already settled in London with his family and not considering relocating to the North West.

Sky Sports News reporter Mark McAdam said:

"This is a significant 24 hours in the future of Christian Eriksen. It's a fascinating story as Eriksen is deciding on two options. One is Manchester United, the second is Brentford.

"It's strange to think that 10 years ago, United were challenging for Premier League titles while Brentford were in League One preparing for their first game of the season against Bury.
