Christian Eriksen, the highly rated 19-year-old Danish international, has been linked with a whole host of top clubs across Europe, with United and Real Madrid supposedly keen to land his signature.

The playmaker’s agent claimed that he turned down an offer from Manchester City, whilst the player himself played down talk of a move to Liverpool.

Whilst it is clear the player will be interested in a move away at some point, for now, he is happy in Holland.

“I don’t feel the pressure. I’m getting used to it now,” he said. “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.”
