Man Utd ‘join Tottenham in race for free Christian Eriksen transfer after remarkable comeback for Brentford and Denmark’

CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN is being chased by former club Tottenham and Manchester United following his incredible return from last year's cardiac arrest.

The 30-year-old's impressed the Premier League titans with his incredible impact for Brentford since getting back in action after the heart scare at Euro 2020 nine months ago.

Eriksen's health scare saw him fitted with an ICD so he could continue playing.

But his ex-club Inter Milan had to let the midfield dynamo go as Serie A regulations do not permit him to play with his defibrillator.

Eriksen was then snagged by the Bees in January who took him on until the end of the season.

His fine form for the London club led to Denmark giving him a call-up last month.

Eriksen instantly repaid his national side's faith by scoring with his first touch of the game at the same stadium where he suffered the near-fatal heart scare.

And Eriksen's rich vein of form continued when he scored his debut goal for Brentford in their shock 4-1 drubbing of Chelsea on Saturday.

His phenomenal progress with the Bees has caught the attention of Spurs and Man United who are also embroiled in a battle for a top-four spot, the Daily Mail reported.

The fact that they won't have to spend a penny on him is proving to be an attractive proposition to the Prem rivals.

A move to White Hart Lane will see Eriksen rekindle his love affair with the club where he spent seven years.

And he'll reunite with Spurs boss Antonio Conte – who he won the Scudetto with at Inter last season.

But Bees boss Thomas Frank is keen for Eriksen to stay at the club next season.

He said: "In any footballer’s decision to move clubs there are a lot of aspects. It will be the same for Christian.

"To be fair, I know Christian quite well and one thing he’s good at is just enjoying the moment. And I think he’s enjoying it even more.

"So we are not thinking too much of what is going to happen in two or three months’ time.

"I’m just very pleased he’s playing for us. It’s no secret that I want him to continue next season.

"I know Christian is enjoying his football and really enjoying being back. I know I will have to answer these questions until the end of the season, so let’s see what will happen."
