Manchester United 'open talks over £50m Christian Eriksen move'

Manchester United reportedly enter talks with Tottenham Hotspur over the potential £50m transfer of midfielder Christian Eriksen.

Manchester United have reportedly entered talks with Tottenham Hotspur over a potential £50m transfer for midfielder Christian Eriksen ahead of Thursday's transfer deadline.

Spurs are willing to part ways with Eriksen, who only has one year left on his contract, in order to use the money from his sale to fund a move for Bruno Fernandes.

United have also been heavily linked with Fernandes, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer yet to add to the squad's midfield reinforcements this summer.

However, according to The Independent, United's attention has switched to Eriksen, with the Red Devils confident that they can strike a £50m deal for the Dane over the next 48 hours.

Real Madrid have reportedly expressed interest in Eriksen over the window, but this has cooled over the last week as the La Liga side target Donny van de Beek, leaving United as the only serious candidates to secure the 27-year-old's signature.

It is claimed that Eriksen, although initially reluctant to complete the switch to Old Trafford, is now keen on moving up north after growing more resolved in his desire to leave Spurs this summer.

Sunday's key events


GOLF
· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

CYCLING - BMX
· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

SWIMMING
· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

BOXING
· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

TENNIS
· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

SAILING
· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS
· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

ATHLETICS
· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

HOCKEY
· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
