Inter Milan could offer Christian Eriksen to Manchester United in the hope of securing Fred as part of the deal, according to a report.
Eriksen has struggled since his move from Tottenham, suffering from a run of poor form.
Teammate Romelu Lukaku has said that learning Italian would benefit the Denmark international. Head coach Antonio Conte, meanwhile, has doubted that that change would an impact.
What’s more, Conte has insisted that he will not look to move Eriksen into a deeper role to accommodate him. As such, links have resurfaced that he could be on the move again soon after signing for Inter.
But Corrierre dello Sport (via Sports Mole) claims that a move to United could be another option for the frustrated star.
As part of the deal, Inter would reportedly look to sign Fred, which the source states would be a tough operation.
Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has relied on the Brazilian as a key protector of his back four from midfield. As such, it would take some persuasion from Inter chiefs to get that part of the deal in progress.
What’s more, it remains unclear whether United would want Eriksen in their side. Fellow attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes has made himself arguably the first name on Solskjaer’s team sheet.
The Italian publication adds that Paris Saint-Germain’s Leandro Paredes is another option for a swap deal for Inter.
