Manchester United have long been linked with a move for Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen, and could now land him for as little as £40m.

According to the London Evening Standard, Spurs have accepted that they must offload the Dane, and will listen to offers as low as £40m.

The midfielder has previously been valued at closer to £100m, but he has indicated that he will not sign a new contract at the club, despite the arrival of Jose Mourinho as manager.

That could alert Manchester United, who may be tempted by the cut-price deal.
