The report adds that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken with Ed Woodward regarding his summer transfers, and Eriksen is part of his plans.

Eriksen is interested in a move to Real Madrid and wants to play under Zinedine Zidane, but the report adds that Real are looking at Paul Pogba and Eden Hazard in the summer.

The 27-year-old Eriksen is one of the best playmakers in the Premier League and Levy would want a huge fee for the Dane, according to the report.

Eriksen will have just one year left of his deal and the Mirror claims that United might have to pay £95million to sign the Dane.
