'Great fit' - Exclusive: Mills urges Man United to swoop for PL player amid reported speculation
Danny Mills urged Manchester United to swoop for Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the former England international admitted Eriksen would be a great fit for Man United as his quality isn’t in question.
It was previously reported that Eriksen was high on United’s January shopping list and Spurs chairman Daniel Levy admitted Jose Mourinho’s side would not be scared to sell him to a Premier League rival.
Mills explained that he thought the North London club would be open to selling Eriksen to United as Mourinho won’t be bothered as he doesn’t want him.
When asked whether Spurs would actually considering selling to Man United as that’s surely their worst-case scenario, Mills told Football Insider: “Again if Mourinho doesn’t want him, he won’t be overly bothered, simple as that.
“We’ve seen that before if you’re not wanted, you’re not wanted, you can’t pick and choose whether a player goes after that.

“But I think he’d be a great fit for Man United if you get back to his top-quality.
“He’s tip-top quality, we know that, is his heart still set on Madrid rather than Manchester, that might be the only issue.”
The 27-year-old has featured 19 times for Spurs this season, scoring two goals and registering three assists in the process.
Eriksen’s future at Spurs looks uncertain as the Danish playmaker’s contract is on course to expire at the end of the season.
The midfielder has been with Spurs since joining from Dutch club Ajax in July 2013 and he has racked up a total of 296 appearances for the London club.
