Man Utd offered Eriksen £43MILLION package in free transfer move to ward off interest from his former club Tottenham | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED reportedly handed Christian Eriksen a package worth £43MILLION when they signed him on a free transfer to ward off interest from rivals.

The Red Devils snapped up Eriksen after his six-month contract with Brentford expired.

Eriksen proved he could still cut it at the top level while playing for the Bees last term, despite the career setback following a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 playing for Denmark AND his release from Inter Milan.

His elegance and form landed him back on the radar of some of England's top clubs – including his former team Tottenham.

And according to Football Insider, to ward off interest from their rivals, United are paying Eriksen £200,000-a-week plus a £12million signing-on fee.

Across the span of his three-year contract, United will have paid the 30-year-old an eye-watering £43m.
