REVEALED: Eriksen chose Inter Milan ahead of Man Utd, Bayern Munich offers

Manchester United attempted to keep Christian Eriksen in England before joined Inter Milan, it has been revealed.

Eriksen left Tottenham for Inter in January, though the Nerazzurri didn't have a clear run at the Dane.

Gazzetta dello Sport says he rejected the advances of Paris Saint Germain, Bayern Munich and United.

A phone call from Inter coach Antonio Conte is understood to have been crucial in his decision to choose Inter.

The move from Spurs cost €20m.
