Man Utd see Spurs ace Eriksen as Pogba replacement

Manchester United will spend big to find a replacement if Paul Pogba is sold this summer.

The London Evening Standard says United are considering Tottenham ace Christian Eriksen and AS Monaco's Youri Tielemans as transfer options for if Pogba departs this summer.

United chief Ed Woodward will reject any bid for Pogba, despite the Frenchman's desire to join Real Madrid, as he's hinted in public.

The same report, however, says that United have sounded out Spurs playmaker Eriksen and Monaco's Tielemans - who starred on loan for Leicester last season - as possible Pogba alternatives.

United's preferred option is to keep hold of Pogba, says the Manchester Evening News. They are adamant that the France World Cup winner is going nowhere this summer despite the speculation.
