Christian Eriksen plan
United reportedly think they can sign Tottenham star Christian Eriksen in January – but not in the summer transfer window.
The Red Devils have admired the Denmark international for a number of years with interest dating back to Sir Alex Ferguson’s time at the helm.
Manchester United nearly signed Eriksen in the summer but opted to pull out of a transfer amid fears he preferred a move to Spain.
And the Metro claim United believe they can sign Eriksen in January if they make an offer to Spurs.
They reportedly think they have no chance of winning a straight race for the playmaker at the end of the season.
And that means United have just over two months to get a deal for the Tottenham star done.

Personal terms agreed
Manchester United have agreed personal terms with an ‘unnamed target’, The Metro claim.
They say the Red Devils are confident of signing at least one player in the January transfer window.
Mario Mandzukic could be the unnamed transfer target.
Express Sport understands the Red Devils are keen on the Juventus striker, who has struggled to get game time with the Italian giants this season.

Woodward makes transfer decision
United chief Ed Woodward is prepared to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer £73million to spend on new recruits when the transfer window reopens in January.
The Red Devils are keen to add some fresh faces to their squad in the New Year amid their troublesome Premier League campaign so far.
United have won just three of their first 11 games and face a huge task to finish in the top four, currently sitting 10 points adrift of Chelsea.
Back in the summer, United sold Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan for £73m.
And, now, the Metro claim Woodward has decided to give Solskjaer the full amount to spend on reinforcements.
Man Utd to block exit
Manchester United will block any bids for Marcos Rojo in the January transfer window.
Rojo looked surplus to requirements under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last season as he struggled to get into the starting line-up.
A move away from Old Trafford in the summer looked likely, as Everton closed in on a possible deal.
But United at the last minute decided against accepting a loan deal, leading to the transfer falling through at the final hour.
And The Sun report Solskjaer doesn’t want to lose the defender in January.
A United insider told The Sun: “The manager has been impressed with how Marcos has knuckled down since he almost left for Everton.
“He hasn’t moaned about it, Ole knows he is a top defender when he can keep himself fit.
“He doesn’t see anybody available out there in January who could improve on Marcos.”
