Manchester United midfielder, Christian Eriksen has come out to say that his move to the club was years in the making. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he almost joined the club on three separate occasions while he was at Tottenham Hotspur, but it just wasn’t the right move for his career at the time.
Eriksen added that he is always very pleased when preseason finishes and the new season starts, so he is really looking forward to the coming weeks.
His words, “I’ve spoken to every manager who’s been here at Man United to see what the situation was,”
“But I was at Spurs at the time and I really couldn’t see myself playing in another English team at that time. I went abroad and went to Inter.”
“It’s been on the books, well, not on the books but it’s been spoken about. For me, it wasn’t the [right] timing, it wasn’t there and I was at a place at Spurs for a long time and I wanted to try something abroad and I went to Inter and ended up having a lovely time.”
“But then obviously something happened in the summer and that changed a bit the career path I had in mind, and then obviously to come back to Brentford first of all and then to be here is something I didn’t think could happen a year ago.”
On not returning to Spurs, “It was only talk.”
“They never really came with anything so it wasn’t really a thing for me to go back to Tottenham at the time and Man United were very early on, very positive and I had good conversations.”
“It was very positive from the first few phone calls already and the club felt like they wanted me, so it was on for a long time.”
“I feel good,”
“I’m always most pleased when preseason has finished and the season starts and then you know your condition is where you hope it should be.
“It’s been good, I’ve been taken good care of by the group and I’ve been getting my minutes in and I’m really trying to slot in as quickly as possible to the first-team.”
