Tottenham Hotspur ace Christian Eriksen is reportedly facing a transfer dilemma in the upcoming summer window as he is reportedly set to decide to choose one club between Real Madrid and Manchester United as his next team.
With the Dane entering into the final 12 months of his contract at White Hart Lane after this season, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy might be willing to see Eriksen for £95m, rather than risking losing him for free next season.
However, trusted Spanish publication AS quote Express who claim that strained transfer relations between Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur over the years could prove to be a hindrance in Eriksen's move to Old Trafford.

This particular situation is what Real Madrid could benefit from once again. In the past, Manchester United were pretty close to snatch Gareth Bale and Luka Modric from Tottenham before the duo was subsequently sold to Los Blancos.
Then, in 2017, Tottenham again put the brakes on United trying to sign Eric Dier, after which the Red Devils went on to sign Nemanja Matic. Most recently, Spurs have also ensured they did not sell their star defender Toby Alderweireld to the Old Trafford side.
Express finally quote the Mirror in reporting that despite Eriksen's personal preference being Real Madrid, Los Blancos are said to have Eriksen as their third choice option after Eden Hazard and Paul Pogba, which definitely brings the Dane in a condition where he could have to settle with a compromise, more so as Manchester United are reportedly ready to offer him three times his current wage at Spurs.
