Manchester United star rules out move to Saudi Arabia

Christian Eriksen will likely leave Manchester United this summer, with one year left to run on his contract. It was inevitable that the international break would throw up some questions about his future.

Due to a knee injury sustained in November, the Denmark international missed ten games in all competitions and only made 12 starts in the Premier League last season.

Having less of an impact on the team in his second year at the organisation, United will entertain offers for Eriksen’s signing this summer.

Some players are drawn to the idea of playing in Saudi Arabia, but Eriksen has made it clear that, in contrast to other Premier League players in recent years—particularly those who are willing to dance for the Saudi carrot—he is not interested in shifting his career to the Saudi Pro League.

Eriksen says ‘no’ to Saudi Pro League switch

“I have never received an offer [from Saudi Arabia], and I have made sure that it has never been approached,” said Eriksen, as per Danish outlet Bold.

“If my agent has said something, I’ve always said that I don’t even want to know what it is because it’s not something that interests me.”

Eriksen was asked if he saw it happening in the future, to which he responded: “No. I can see that it can be difficult to say no, and we have also talked about that before – also for the club.

“I understand that it can be really difficult to say not if you see how much money is involved, but I just try to avoid it completely so that I don’t get to know how much it could be. I’m not going there.”

I can’t help but admire Eriksen’s stance. Even though he could move to Saudi Arabia and pocket a lot more money, it’s not like he’s not filthy rich already.

It sounds like he’d prefer to end his career in Denmark!
