Manchester United appear to be struggling to bring in key targets this summer with Brentford’s Christian Eriksen the latest to reject a switch to the Red Devils.
The update, shared by the Guardian, attracted an uproarious reaction from former Liverpool star Jose Enrique on Twitter.

Erik ten Hag’s outfit was beaten to the signature of prolific Benfica hitman Darwin Nunez after the Uruguayan’s head was turned by the prospect of a move to the Merseysiders – an opportunity he grasped with both hands in a £64m move.
It’s at times like this that we could not be more grateful for the collective superiority of our transfer efforts with the pull of Jurgen Klopp, combined with the expertise of our recruitment team, consistently ensuring that we identify and secure our top targets.
Perfection isn’t quite a guarantee, as the snubbing of Liverpool by Aurelien Tchouameni in favour of a move to Spanish capital highlights, but it’s to our credit that we often have sound alternatives lined up.
If not, patience is the name of the game for the club and we would appear set to exercise that virtue once more whilst waiting for our next top midfield addition next summer.
