Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson wants his players to make a ruling on Ajax star Christian Eriksen.

The Manchester Evening News says Ferguson will get his own players' assessment before deciding whether to move for summer target Eriksen.

United will get a first-hand look at the Danish wonderkid when they face Ajax in the Europa League tomorrow night.

Ferguson believes Eriksen has the potential to become the long-term successor to Paul Scholes and does not want to lose him to one of United's European rivals.
