Naturally, a key part of the rebuilding job that will be started at Old Trafford, this summer, relates to who the club can persuade to join them.
If Manchester United are not able to offer Champions League football, next season, then the lure of playing for our great club might be somewhat diminished.
Yesterday, as we scoured the various news pages available to us, the name of a familiar transfer target once again generated column inches in the mainstream media.
It would appear, according to the news vehicle, the Standard, Manchester United remain keen to lure the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Christian Eriksen, to the club.
Eriksen, according to our source, is only paid £70,000 a week by the North London club, a pittance when it comes to the salaries a player of his standard normally earns in the Premier League.
Although Tottenham have offered the Danish international a new contract that would double his salary, the 27-year-old has yet to put pen-to-paper.
However, as you’d expect, if Eriksen does become available there will be other clubs interested with our quoted source inferring our main rival for his signature could be real Madrid, hence the necessity to be able to offer the player Champions League football.
But, is Eriksen the kind of player you’d welcome to Old Trafford as part of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s rebuilding plans?
