MANCHESTER UNITED are plotting a January swoop for Christian Eriksen despite him rejecting them over the summer, according to reports.
The Real Madrid target, 27, opted to play out his final season at Champions League finalists Tottenham amid interest from Old Trafford.
Once a key figure for Mauricio Pochettino, the Danish international has struggled to find form this season as speculation about his future continues.
And with Jose Mourinho starting to get the best out of Dele Alli in the No10 role, Eriksen could see his opportunities limited.
United would offer him an escape route but there would be plenty of interest in the playmaker from abroad this summer.
Juventus and Atletico Madrid have also been circling, with the Old Lady renowned for picking up bargain free transfers every season.
