Eriksen went to Inter from Tottenham in January 2020, but has endured a miserable 12 months with the team.
He is not in the good books of manager Antonio Conte and may leave before the winter window closes.
And according to journalists Ian McGarry and Duncan Castles via the Transfer Window podcast, United believe they can land Eriksen on loan for bargain price.
United have offered Inter £1.33million (€1.5m) of the £3.55m (€4m) left on Eriksen's contract this season.
The coronavirus pandemic has forced many clubs to cash in where they can and Inter are no exception.
Eriksen favours a return to Tottenham, but the Dane could find himself at Old Trafford if an agreement is reached.
