To sign with ERIKSEN UTD
Manchester United have reached an agreement in principle to sign Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen on a free transfer, according to reports on Monday.
United boss Eric Ten Hague has asked Erickson for a three-year contract.
The 30-year-old has reportedly agreed a deal with United and will complete his transfer to Old Trafford after undergoing a medical.
Erickson has completed an incredible return to his career following the death of his brush last year.
He suffered a heart attack while playing for Denmark at the European Championships in Copenhagen and was forced to leave Inter Milan after recovering in Serie A.

Equipped with a removable cardioverter defibrillator, Ericksen proved his form and ability during his second half of the season at Brentford.
He played 11 times in the Brentford Premier League, scoring once and setting up four assists.
Erickson was also targeted by his former club Tottenham Hotspur but was impressed by Ten Hag after training with Ajax following a heart attack.

The former Spurs boss has been sacked by PSG
Paris Saint-Germain are set to replace Mauricio Pochettino as French champions, according to a press release issued on Tuesday.
PSG will hold a press conference at the club’s Park des Prince Stadium on Monday at 2:00 pm (1200 GMT). This event is an indication that it may be useful for publicizing Galtier.
PSG refused to confirm Galtier’s presentation to AFP on Monday, but Le Parisien and various local media outlets posted a video on Twitter of the 55-year-old arriving at the club’s office outside the French capital.
PSG have been working for several weeks to finalize the appointment of the new coach, but no action has been taken. Pochettino and his backyard staff will remain on contract.
According to French media reports, Galtier, who spent last season in charge of Ligue 1 rivals Nice, will arrive in Paris on Monday to sign a two-year contract with the Qatari-owned club.
With the exception of those on international duty in June, PSG announced their pre-season preparations on Monday.
Galtier, who left Nice last month, has developed into a top-flight coach for the French club over the past decade.
He spent eight successful years at St. Etienne, where he won the 2013 League Cup.
Pochettino is set to leave Paris after 18 months in charge. He won the Ligue 1 title last season but has also been knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid in the last 16.
It may come as a surprise to some that the Qatari-owned club, once linked with Zinedine Zidane’s transfer to PSG, could opt for a more attractive name on the bench.
However, the former Portsmouth assistant manager has previously worked with the Portuguese Super Scout at the Louis Campus, where he was recently named PSG’s football adviser and built the Lille team that won the league under Geltier.
PSG have boosted their hopes for the Champions League success in the short term.
They have signed a deal ahead of the new campaign, with መም 40 million (42 42 million) coming from Porto, a 22-year-old Portuguese midfielder.
