Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, believes the signing of Christian Eriksen would have made a ‘big difference’ for Manchester United.
Speaking on Robbie Savage’s Premier League Breakfast, the 44-year-old said: “I was quite excited when Christian Eriksen got mentioned.”
The former England international also compared Eriksen to Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne saying: “He could have made a big difference to United in the way De Bruyne plays for City, creating chances and scoring goals.”
Manchester United were linked with the Tottenham midfielder who recently admitted he was looking for a new challenge.
However, with Deadline Day behind us, United fans will have to wait until January to see whether this move can actually transpire.
Despite missing out on the Danish international, Scholes still believes that the Red Devils are well prepared for the season and can seal a top four finish.
He said: “They have some good players so the target is top four and I think they will make it.”
United start the season this Sunday with a huge game against Chelsea. Christian Eriksen’s Tottenham meanwhile, take on newly promoted Aston Villa.
