    Eriksen is brilliant, would be our best midfielder if he signed.

    I think Eriksen would be abit mad to join us in our current state unless ofcourse he's only motivated by money.

    Don't see how him and Pogba play in the same XI unless you shoehorn Eriksen from playing from the right much like we've done with Mata for all these years

    He’s excellent but realistically we have zero chance to get him. He will either move to City or go abroad.

    Levy will not sell him to us, he wouldn't even sell us Toby who had one year left on his contract and you expect him to sell us eriksen?

    If Madrid come calling, then that is where he will end up. Fernandes would be another I would like to see here.

    Okay fine, fecking fine, you can have Lukaku if you want him so much, jeez.

    Hasn't Eriksen been pretty shit as of late though? I'm a fan of his but recently, whenever I've watched Spuds, he was just crap. Or was I unlucky?

    They didn't have any money for transfers last summer and it was too late in the end, if eriksen goes they can replace him, though what levy have in his mind only he can know. Money talks.

    Yeah, but you're completely ignoring the fact that Eriksen has 1 year left on his contract. It's take a reasonable offer now, or let him leave on a free. You're not in a position to be bartering for our players. Especially the best ones.

    Eriksen and Fernandes would instantly lift our quality. Would be dream signings if they happened.

    You can have Lukaku if you insist on having one of our players.

    United have wanted many Spurs players over the years and continue to do so now, but the last one who actually went to United was more than a decade ago. Moreover, things have changed since then: United are no longer the attraction they once were and Spurs no longer the need the money because our income has sky-rocketed.

    This should tell any sensible United fan that Eriksen is very unlikely to make a move north and that their club, instead of endlessly looking to poach established stars, should instead focus on trying to find their own Eriksen (at the stage he was when Spurs signed him from Ajax).

    He's having a bit of an up and down season. Was really good first half but then for a long while dropped off and was invisible, now seems to have picked it up again. When he's 'on form' we're 10 times the team but it's very frustrating sometimes watching him simply fail to have an impact on games, when you consider his exceptional talent.

    Those aren't the only possible outcomes. But even if they were, it's very likely that (a) what you might consider to be a "reasonable" offer and what Levy might consider it to be are very different; and (b) the only "reasonable" offer that Levy would accept is from outside the Prem.

    Can't see him coming here if he has offers from Madrid or Juve. Doubt Juve is an option as they just signed Ramsey.
    I don't subscribe to the notion Levy won't deal with us under any circumstances. He's not demented. Pretty sure he's a pragmatist. If we are the only club in for him, I'm fairly confident we can sign him. Pity we won't be the only club though.

    If Martial did not sign that £200k+ per week extension i could easily see him being offered to Spurs for Eriksen + some cash. Not the worst deal for both parties. Martial would get some much needed hands on coaching from Poch and we would get Eriksen.
    As for Eriksen replacement: Odegaard.

    Obviously.

    I'm talking solely about Manchester United in my original post, in response to the Spurs fan I quoted.

    Both Barca and Real will be in for Eriksen. Levy would happily lower the price a little to send him to Spain rather than lose his best player to a direct top 4 rival.

    If he flops in Spain, he'll be available for a knock down price a year from now.

    I assume you meant Martial + cash for Eriksen, rather than Eriksen + cash for Martial?

    But in any case I would think our interest in Martial has waned now that Lucas Moura has established himself at Spurs: Son + Moura provide sufficient pacy, attacking options for us

    Cash + Martial for Eriksen yes. Not that it is going to happen with the wages Martial is on now.

    I'd say interest has wand since Martial snubbed you to stay at United.
    No point in extending more invitations to tour your world class training facilities anymore.

    Without doubt, Spurs will sell him in this window, if he refuses to extend. iirc, This is the same way Eriksen got out of his previous club. If he prefers a domestic club, he will go there. Levy don't have any option in it.
    Its funny that some are discussing that United has to add a player swap.

    Remember Even City could have got Rooney, if he is having only a year left.

    Utd can’t do what they did 10 years ago where they probably thought certain players were too high risk to buy themselves, so let a lesser team than themselves take the risk and if those certain players were the real deal, then Utd can just go buy them at the premium because they can afford them back then and most of those lesser teams needed to money.

    Now that PL money has gone apeshit insane and clubs like Spurs have gained ground, that’s now very hard to almost impossible to pull off.

    Utd now have to take those risks due to the increased competitiveness

    Levy will not sell, even if he does, he will probably charge a ridiculous amount that it makes it not worth it. That's the way he is. It is worse now that they are above us in the league.

    I agree that it's all up to Eriksen, which is why I think it's unlikely that he will end up at United. I personally think he's more likely to sign a new deal around 200k at Spurs than end up at United. He is probably going to Spain if I am to guess.

    Don't be silly. If Eriksen wants to leave, Levy the option of telling him he can go abroad, but not go to a Prem club. In that event, Eriksen is hardly going to refuse to go to RM or Barca (or whoever) in favour of giving up a year's worth of greatly improved wages and holding out for United.

    I mean who wouldn’t want him but in all honesty I doubt we;d be his only option or even his first choice. If Real are looking to rebuild I’d wager he’d be on the list and they’d probably be high on his list of places to play.

    The player transfer value has skyrocketed more than their wages. Buying a player is much more expensive than extending bumper contracts. I would assume he would ask more than he is worth to sign as he is having only a year left in a couple of months. Although end of contract season, Fellaini and Herrera took the club for cleaners.

    Read my post again. "If he prefers domestic club". It is not Levy's option. It is Eriksens option. Next season, he will not be in Spurs if he is not renewing it.

    It doesn't matter if he'd prefer a domestic club - he's not going to prefer it so much that he'd give up the chance of playing for the likes of RM or Barca and immediately boosting his wages by a big amount. Levy won't sell to a Prem rival, regardless of what Eriksen might prefer.

    Toby says hello.
    An almost identical way of thinking you were peddling in here last year.

    He'd also get substantially more from Utd as a free agent so that missed wage wouldn't be a problem

    99.9999% of players are motivated only by money. He's hardly a childhood Spurs fan like, is he ?

    Toby wasn't wanted by RM or Barca - big difference. Nor is it just about wages - waiting another year to leave as a free agent would mean he'd be 28 years old heading towards 29. That's a year, when he's entering the later stages of his career, that he could be playing for RM or Barca.

    It's a total pipe dream to believe that he pines for United.
