Christian Eriksen has verbally agreed to a three-year deal with Manchester United, David Ornstein of The Athletic reports.

A contract is set to be completed pending significant medical tests despite some interest from Tottenham Hotspur to bring the midfielder back.

The 30-year-old made his return to the Premier League with Brentford in February after recovering from collapsing on the pitch at Euro 2020 after suffering a cardiac arrest. Eriksen was fitted with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator but could not resume play with AC Milan because of Serie A rules.

The Italian club would terminate their deal with Eriksen allowing him to join Brentford fro the second half of the season where he played for 11 matches.
