Christian Eriksen’s great story continues with the move to Old Trafford.
according to the athlete30-year-old midfielder David Ornstein has agreed to a three-year contract with Manchester United. Once Eriksen formally signs the deal and completes a critical medical examination, the Denmark international will become one of the first deals of the summer for the club.
One year ago, a move to one of Europe’s biggest clubs was hard to believe after Eriksen collapsed on the field due to cardiac arrest in the Eurozone. The Danish star needed resuscitation on the field before being taken to hospital.
The installation of an implantable defibrillator to monitor his heart rhythm made Eriksen ineligible to play in Serie A, where he was a member of defending champions Inter Milan. But in the winter, Eriksen signed with Brentford for the second half of the season, participating in 11 matches and scoring one goal in the Premier League.

He went on to score for Denmark in his first match at the Barken Arena in Copenhagen, the site of his cardiac arrest last June.
Having reportedly refused to return to Brentford, Eriksen will join Manchester United on a free transfer after the club lost Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard among other midfielders.
The attacking midfielder is set to become one of the first deals under new coach Erik ten Hag, while the club is also said to be close to a deal for left-back Feyenoord Terrell Malacia.
