Manchester United have made Inter an offer to sign Christian Eriksen on loan until the end of the season, according to a report in the British media.
As per the Transfer Window Podcast, run by football journalists Ian McGarry and Duncan Castles, the Premier League leaders are looking for an understudy to Bruno Fernandes and have identified the Danish midfielder as a stopgap until the end of the season.
United are only prepared to cover part of Eriksen’s salary as part of the deal, offering to pay €1.5 million of the €4 million he is due between now and June.
Given Inter’s insistence that whoever takes Eriksen must pay a significant part, if not all of his salary, it seems highly unlikely a deal will be agreed.
Eriksen was an unused substitute in Sunday’s Derby d’Italia win over Juventus and remains likely to leave Inter in January, provided a club makes an offer that meets the Nerazzurri’s conditions.
A report in Gazzetta dello Sport today said they wanted a paid loan or a permanent deal in order to part company with the 28-year-old.
