Denmark coach Age Hareide admits Inter Milan midfielder Christian Eriksen turned down Manchester United this season.

Eriksen left Tottenham for Inter last month.

And Hareide revealed: "There were clubs in England that were interested in him. Manchester United were interested in Christian Eriksen. I know that Ole Gunnar (Solskjaer) was there.

"There was talk of Real Madrid and partly Barcelona, but mostly Real Madrid.

"But along the way Inter and (Antonio) Conte showed their interest. And they showed real interest in Christian and that was the most important thing."
