Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy gives Christian Eriksen green light to join Man United

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has stated that Spurs are not scared of doing business with Premier League rivals amid Man United interest in Christian Eriksen.

The Dane has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent months and was linked with a late move to Manchester United but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left with little time to convince the midfielder to make the switch.

Levy has revealed that he is open to keeping Eriksen at White Hart Lane but the former Ajax midfielder has turned down several contracts from Spurs.

Eriksen can negotiate with foreign teams from January 1 but Premier League clubs such as Man United could still agree a fee with Spurs in order to sign him in the winter transfer window.

‘We are honestly not scared to trade with our rivals,’ Levy told the Evening Standard.

‘My view is really simple. For a player to sign a new contract, not only have the conditions got to be right but the player has got to want to do it.

‘It is up to those players whether they want to stay at Tottenham and we’ll see.

‘I don’t want to comment on ­individual players too much. I actually think it is unfair.

‘Every circumstance is different. There may be a player who wants to stay, there may be a player we don’t want to stay.’

Manchester United are expected to make at least one signing in January after failing to sign replacements for Ander Herrera, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.

The 27-year-old Tottenham midfielder is an ideal replacement for Paul Pogba should the World Cup winner force his move to Real Madrid.

Erling Haaland is one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s top priorities and reports are claiming the deal could be finalised in January but will agree to loan the Norwegian back to Salzburg for the remainder of the season.
