Malaga Ready to Rival Manchester United for Starlet Christian Eriksen

Friday, 30th March, 2012

Malaga are looking to steal a march on Manchester United for the signature of Ajax starlet Christian Eriksen.

Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted holding an interest in the Danish midfielder, even as recently as February and took a close look at his talents when Manchester United met Ajax in the Europa League.

A bid from the Red Devils in the summer is expected, but the English giants are not the only side to harbour ambitions of snapping up the 20-year-old.

According to Spanish radio station Cadena Ser, Manuel Pellegrini’s Malaga are keener than ever on Eriksen and have been encouraged by a recent admission from the player that La Liga offers a style of football which would suit his game.

With Barcelona and Real Madrid far from certain movers for the Ajax star, Malaga may offer the most realistic possibility of a jump into the Spanish top flight.

Key to Malaga’s hopes of attracting Eriksen is Champions League football. And the signs are positive as Ruud van Nistelrooy and co. remain firmly in the running to finish in La Liga’s top four.

Should this happen, Los Boquerones will be more confident than ever over their chances of snapping up the midfield gem.
