TOTTENHAM contract rebel Christian Eriksen is reportedly set to snub a move to Manchester United in January.
The 27-year-old – who hasn’t started a Premier League game since November 3 – is poised to become a free agent in the summer as he refuses to extend his stay at Spurs.
But he appears to be happy to wait until the summer to depart North London instead of moving in the winter transfer window.
According to the Daily Star, the Red Devils are ready to offer Spurs a cut-price deal of £20million in order to snare the Denmark international away from the club.
But they claim that Eriksen is not interested in linking up with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side – despite Daniel Levy ready to do business with United.
It is the second time in six months that the former Ajax man has snubbed the Red Devils, with United failing in an approach to land the player before the start of the season.
The report adds that Eriksen is to wait for the likes of Real Madrid and Juventus to come in for him as he knows being a free agent makes him an attractive option for clubs.
Eriksen – along with with team-mate Jan Vertonghen – have been urged by Jose Mourinho to follow Toby Alderweireld and extend their stay with Spurs.
He stated: “If I was Jan or Christian I would stay because they are here for such a long time.

“They are living the life of the club for the last five or six years, the transition from White Hart Lane to the best stadium in the world.
“With the perspective and vision of the club for the future, if I was them I would say ‘I want to be part of the next one’.”
Eriksen – who has been benched for the last six top-flight games – has chipped in with two goals and three assists in 19 games in all competitions this campaign.
