Published Add your comment

Christian Eriksen is settled at Ajax, and the playmaker has insisted he will spend next season with the Dutch side, despite interest from Manchester United and Manchester City.

Eriksen, who has made 15 appearances for Denmark, said he has gotten used to juggling games for club and country.


The 19-year-old told reporters: "I don't feel the pressure. I'm getting used to it now.

"A lot of clubs are following me but you know when they follow you it's because it's going well.

"I hope it's going to go on until I play at a new club, but right now I'm at Ajax and I'm very happy there."

Both Manchester United and Manchester City were said to be chasing the star this summer, along with Real Madrid.

City were believed to have made a £20 million bid for Eriksen, according to the Daily Mail, but both City and Ajax denied that talks were taking place.

United were also said to be still interested in Eriksen, but with the 19-year-old insisting he’s happy in Holland, both United and City will need to look elsewhere to bolster their midfield.
