Tottenham contract rebel Christian Eriksen makes Man Utd decision

Tottenham contract rebel Christian Eriksen has no interest in a move to Manchester United.

Old Trafford boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer failed with a swoop last summer for Tottenham's unsettled star as he chose to wait - in vain - for Real Madrid to come calling.

And United are unlikely to fare any better in the New Year when they are weigh in with a cut-price £20m offer for Eriksen, says the Daily Star.

For starters, the Danish playmaker, with less than six months left on his current deal, will be permitted to talk to foreign clubs from the start of January.

On top of that, Eriksen, 27, knows being a free transfer next June will make him a far more attractive proposition to Europe's elite - including Spanish giants Real and Italian champions Juventus.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is still trying to persuade the ex-Ajax midfielder to commit his future to the club. But chairman Daniel Levy, who wanted £80m for Eriksen in the close season, would accept £25m to off-load him next month.
