Galatasaray will not move for Manchester United midfielder Christian Eriksen this week but will return with an offer in the summer when Brentford could also be interested in his services.

The Turkish transfer window closes on 9 February with Galatasaray pondering a late move for the Denmark international.

However there is reportedly little confidence a deal can be done in time with ESPN reporting Eriksen will stay at Old Trafford for the rest of the 2023-24 campaign.

The Turkish giants are keen to return at the end of the season and discuss a deal.

Eriksen became of the first signings of the Erik ten Hag era in the summer of 2022, starting 36 games in all competitions last season.

The former Tottenham star has started nine of United’s 23 league games this term but the emergence of Kobbie Mainoo as the new star in midfield and Casemiro’s return to fitness has seen him remain on the bench for his side’s last three games.

The 31-year-old has 18 months left on his contract at Old Trafford having joined on a free transfer.

Eriksen had an impressive six months at Brentford prior to the move to Manchester, his return to football just seven months after suffering a cardiac arrets while representing his country at Euro 2020.

Eriksen turned down an improved offer from Brentford in 2022 but his countryman Thomas Frank says he would welcome the midfielder back to west London.  

He told Tipsbladet: ‘He will always be welcome back, Christian – always.

‘I think he knows that. And we know that he had a good time here. I understood well why he went to United back then, and I’ve said that publicly.

‘I also think he’s done well. Of course, he had an injury before Christmas for a while. But if Christian wants, he’s very welcome.’
