Transfer news: Eriksen signs for United
Manchester United is pleased to confirm that Christian Eriksen has joined the club, signing a contract until June 2025.
The midfielder has been capped 115 times for Denmark, scoring 38 goals for his country. Eriksen has played 237 games in the Premier League, registering 52 goals and 71 assists.
Christian Eriksen said:
“Manchester United is a special club, and I cannot wait to get started. I have had the privilege of playing at Old Trafford many times but to do it in the red shirt of United will be an amazing feeling.
John Murtough, Manchester United Football Director, said:
“Christian has been one of the best attacking midfielders in Europe throughout his career. It is no surprise that he had so many options this summer, so we are really happy that he was convinced that this is the right club for him.
“In addition to his outstanding technique, Christian will add valuable experience and leadership skills to the squad, and we are looking forward to seeing the benefits of these qualities on the pitch this coming season and beyond.”
Every pre-season game, including Tuesday's match against Crystal Palace, will be shown live in the Man Utd App and on ManUtd.com.
