MANCHESTER UNITED are interested in a shock swoop for Christian Eriksen – with Inter Milan looking to offload him just 11-months after joining.
The 28-year-old midfielder has had a nightmare time since his £17m arrival in Italy from Tottenham in January.

He has fallen out-of-favour under Antonio Conte, and has only played 274 minutes in Serie A this season along with a handful of substitute appearances in the Champions League.
SunSport understands Inter would be willing to offload Eriksen, but would be looking for a transfer fee of around £27m.
United want to add another attacking midfielder to their squad, with Paul Pogba’s future and fitness up-in-the-air with the window opening next month.
Eriksen has also been eyed by Arsenal and PSG, but Inter’s initial talks over a possible swap deal were immediately rejected.
The ex-Ajax ace has been watched by the French giants on a number of occasions over the past few seasons, and tried to sign him from Spurs.
Sporting director Leonardo is a huge fan of his ability, and there has been rumours over a possible swap deal involving Leandro Paredes.
It is believed the Nerazzurri would NOT be interested in sending the Denmark international out on loan with option to buy either.
Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are also keeping tabs on Leicester winger Harvey Barnes, who is valued at around £60m.
