Man United make midfield star ‘available for transfer’ this summer after playing reduced role this season: report

Man United are looking to cash in on Christian Eriksen, after the Dane has seen his minutes reduced this season.

Manchester United are undergoing major change. Sir Jim Ratcliffe is not messing around. He is not scared to make sacrifices in the short-term, in order to achieve future success.

The dressing room will look very different next season. Anthony Martial and Raphael Varane will leave. No doubt many others will follow, both on free transfers and moves with fees involved. Perhaps some higher profile loans, too.

Another man has been put up for sale over the last 24 hours; Christian Eriksen.

It’s the usually reliable ESPN with the news. They state that United have made the midfield star ‘available for transfer’ this summer, after playing a reduced role this season.

Eriksen was among the first names on the team sheet last term, though that has changed, despite injuries galore in that area of the field.

The Dane looks a step slower than he did in 2022/23, while he’s only been starting games when others have been stuck in the treatment table.

Don’t forget that Eriksen was signed on a free transfer, so his sale, for whatever price, will represent pure profit for the Old Trafford club. It will not be a massive fee due to his age and the fact he has just a year left on his deal.

This is just another example of United trying to clear money off the wage bill before they re-invest those finances in other players. Sir Jim Ratcliffe has made no secret of the fact that this process will take plenty of time. It’s reliant on us fans remaining patient, trusting the process and keeping behind the team.

Moving away from Eriksen does feel like the smart idea given his performances this season.
