Ajax midfielder Christian Eriksen has revealed that there are two clubs that he would be interested in joining, but it is bad news for Manchester United and Liverpool who have both shown an interest in the talented playmaker.
The 21-year-old is largely expected to leave Ajax in the summer and there has been plenty of speculation linking him with a move to the Premier League. As well as Liverpool and Manchester United, Tottenham are also said to be keen to recruit the midfielder after last season convincing Jan Vertonghen to leave the Dutch champions.
And while Eriksen would be prepared to move to the Premier League, it seems as though Manchester City is his preferred destination.
"I'd like to play for a club like Manchester City or PSG," Eriksen told Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad, as reported in the Express. "For me it is important that I have a good feeling at the club.
"I should be able to play football and then I could develop. I will be a better football player."
Both Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain certainly have the money to convince Ajax to part with their star midfielder and he would likely be offered improved wages at either club.
It would be a bitter blow for Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson who previously spoke of his admiration for the player after Ajax played the Premier League side in the Europa League last season.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was also said to be keen on signing the Denmark international as he looks to build a side capable of once again mounting a serious challenge for a place in the top four.
Eriksen is considered one of the best midfielders in Dutch football and is looking to help Ajax secure a third successive league title. He has scored nine league goals already this season to help the club sit five points clear of Vitesse Arnhem at the top of the table.
Ajax would certainly want a significant fee for the midfielder as he has proved his quality in the Eredevisie and in Europe, where he has also excelled.
