Last week, Christian Eriksen became Manchester United’s second summer signing, and Erik ten Hag has voiced his joy at having been successful in luring the veteran midfielder to the club.
After United’s convincing victories in their preseason friendlies against Liverpool and Melbourne Victory, the club’s manager spoke about a variety of issues and topics that would be of interest to many of the club’s fans. These fans have been pleased with Ten Hag’s style of play and philosophy after the club’s recent success.
However, Manchester United and Ajax have reached an agreement on a transfer cost that starts at £46.8 million and can go up to £55.3 million for the 24-year-old player. If personal terms and visa criteria are met, the player will sign a five-year contract with United.
Ten Hag informed the coaching staff at the club that following Liverpool’s victory, he would rather be allowed to prepare for the following day’s training than attend a post-match news conference with members of the media. This was Ten Hag’s explanation following the match.
Eriksen became Manchester United’s second summer acquisition after Tyrell Malacia joined the club earlier this month from Feyenoord in a deal worth approximately £15 million. Eriksen became United’s second summer signing following Malacia. After the news broke on Sunday that a transfer deal with Ajax worth £55 million had been agreed upon, Lisandro Martinez is expected to become their third new player.
The former manager of Ajax was also questioned regarding Christian Eriksen, who had recently signed with Manchester United. The former Ajax manager described Eriksen as an experienced player, citing the player’s lengthy playing career in Italy, Holland, and even a previous stint in England with Tottenham Hotspur.
He said, “Unfortunately, we are unable to include them on our tour at this time.” Because at the very minute that they touch down here, we will take off for home. So that doesn’t make sense.
It’s hardly surprising that so many Manchester United players have discussed their fitness levels and the degree of intensity that they train at when they’ve been interviewed by the media; given how much attention is given to the game of football.
