Christian Eriksen Has The Characteristics Manchester United Desperately Need

It’s been another summer of discontent at Manchester United with club legend Cristiano Ronaldo the latest player to push for a move away from Old Trafford. Needless to say, times have certainly changed since Sir Alex Ferguson retired with the Red Devils no longer a destination club for the world’s best and rather, a sinking ship that players are seemingly desperate to get off of. 

Admittedly, there seems to be a drive to change the current ethos at Old Trafford after years of underwhelming results and inept performances. It will naturally take some time to adequately rectify the situation with United no longer legitimate title contenders. At least, at 25/1 in the latest online betting outright markets to win the Premier League, you can better understand how much work there is to be down in virtually every department of the club to ensure they return to the summit of the English top-flight. However, as initially touched on, there does seem to be a concerted effort to begin making the changes that will ensure this happens.

The appointment of Erik ten Hag is undoubtedly a positive move in the right direction with the Dutch manager certainly not one to turn a blind eye to dwindling standards. In addition to that, the 52-year-old’s recruitment this summer looks to be the breath of fresh air that the club needed and has, on the face of it, broken the habit of bringing in players with the wrong mentality to play for one of the world’s greatest clubs. 

At the top of that list is Christian Eriksen who has joined the club on a contract that will last until the summer of 2025.
