Eriksen has made an incredible recovery since having a cardiac arrest on the pitch during a Euro 2020 match in June last year.

The star was forced to leave Inter Milan after having a defibrillator – which are not allowed in Italy – fitted in the weeks after his collapse.

But he returned to top-level football when fellow Dane Thomas Frank offered him a short-term deal at Brentford.

And he proved he can still make a huge impact in the Premier League as he helped the Bees secure top-flight survival.

That led to them offering him a permanent deal.

However, he has now agreed to join United instead and is said to have wanted £200,000 a week.

He is due to sign a contract, although the final figure is though to be worth less than that.

Eriksen’s move to Old Trafford is subject to a medical, which the BBC claim has still not been arranged.

Now that means it is touch-and-go whether he will join fellow new recruit Tyrell Malacia on the plane this Friday.

The Red Devils are heading to Thailand for the start of their pre-season tour.

They then head to Australia for the second part of the trip.
