Manchester United Make Loan Offer For Christian Eriksen
Speaking on the Transfer Window Podcast, as relayed by the Express, transfer expert Ian McGarry has claimed that Manchester United have been offered the services of Christian Eriksen on loan by Inter Milan. The reliable journalist further adds that the Red Devils have made an offer for the 28-year-old.
Eriksen, after spending close to seven years in England with Tottenham Hotspur, made the switch to Inter Milan in January last year. However, the Danish playmaker has struggled to carve out a place for himself in Antonio Conte’s side and is set to be shown the exit doors just a year after moving to Italy.
So far, Eriksen has featured just 14 times for Inter Milan in the 2020/21 campaign, only four of which have been starts in Serie A. The former AFC Ajax star has failed to contribute with a single goal or an assist and is now primed to leave. Arsenal have been tipped as his next destination, while former club Tottenham are also said to be interested in a potential reunion.

Arsenal Youth revealed Norton-Cuffy was signing a professional deal earlier in the week, after he turned 17 and became eligible for one.
Norton-Cuffy wrote on Instagram that he’s ‘delighted’ and ‘blessed’ to have the chance to sign professional terms with Arsenal. He thanked his family, friends, and coaches for helping him get the opportunity, and added that it’s ‘just the beginning’.

He only made his u18 debut in October, but he’s now up to five appearances for the top academy side too (and one for the u21s).
