Reported Man Utd target Christian Eriksen has revealed that joining a team in the Champions League “isn’t essential” to him.

The Danish playmaker signed for Brentford in January and shone for the Bees after penning a six-month contract.

It turns out it was Darwin Nunez who was rebuffed by sixth-placed Manchester United!

Interest in the player is high and Brentford have reportedly offered him a new long-term deal, however, Tottenham and Man Utd are also keen.

A report on Tuesday claimed that the Red Devils and Spurs have both held ‘substantive talks’ with Eriksen and his representatives.

And speaking to Viaplay, the 30-year-old has admitted that he “would love to play Champions League football again”, but has said that it “isn’t essential” for him.

“I have different offers and options, which we are considering, and then we make a decision,” Eriksen said (quotes via The Athletic).

“I would love to play Champions League football again. I know how much fun it is, but it isn’t essential for me.”

Eriksen also told Danish publication BT (via Spurs Web): “I don’t know why it’s hard to make a decision. Maybe because you need that last thing in order to find out what you want. It’s really hard to say what the outcome will be.

“Sometimes it can happen fast, other times it’s slow. You are not always a master of your own faith. It also depends what the possibilities are in terms of clubs. And then you have to make a decision from that. For me it’s about making the right decision.”

On his plans over the next few days, Eriksen continued: “I’m going on holiday and will be relaxing a bit. We are gonna go swimming, get a little tan and eat some nice food.

“I’ll have my cellphone turned on. I know my agent well enough that he will call me if anything interesting comes along, and if not, he won’t call me.”
