Danny Murphy, a former Liverpool player, has urged Manchester United to hold off on making a summer transfer for Christian Eriksen.
Murphy insisted that Eriksen is not a player of the highest caliber and added that under Erik ten Hag, Man United’s new manager, Eriksen would start ahead of Bruno Fernandes.
By verbally committing to join Man United as a free agent on a three-year deal, he has put an end to rumors surrounding his upcoming football move.
The six-month loan at Brentford, which ended this summer, for the international player from Denmark was impressive.
According to Murphy, who told talkSPORT, “I really like Eriksen, I have always admired him in terms of his creativity and the way he plays football.”
“He tries things, he is good at set-plays, and he has two good feet, but if I were a United supporter, would it excite me? He’s going to play on the team, right?
He will not replace [Bruno] Fernandes on the field.
No, he added. global standard? Eriksen? No. “No, no,” “no, no,”
“His experience and talent make him a welcome addition to any squad.
“But is he going to play in that starting XI when United plays against Liverpool, [Man] City, and Chelsea in the big games? The response is, “No.”
