CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN has been spotted for the first time since his move to Manchester United.
The former Brentford and Tottenham man signed a three-year deal with the Red Devils last week after much speculation surrounding his next move.
Eriksen spent six months at Brentford last season after leaving Inter Milan and flourished under Thomas Frank.
He was forced to quit Italy after Serie A rules dictated that he could no longer play.
This came after he suffered a cardiac arrest at the Euros last summer and was subsequently fitted with a defibrillator – which are not allowed in the Italian top flight.
But he is eligible to compete in England and the Danish international was seen out and about in Manchester for the first time on Sunday.
Eriksen was greeted by the almost-mythical Mancunian weather as he strolled the rainy streets with an umbrella.
And it isn’t long now until Man Utd fans will get to see the attacking midfielder pull on the red shirt as one of football’s great comeback stories continues.
Erik ten Hag’s first Premier League game in charge of the club comes at home to Brighton on Sunday August 7.
Speaking about joining United, Eriksen said: “Manchester United is a special club, and I cannot wait to get started.

“I have had the privilege of playing at Old Trafford many times but to do it in the red shirt of United will be an amazing feeling.
“I have seen Erik’s work at Ajax and know the level of detail and preparation that he and his staff put into every day. It is clear that he is a fantastic coach.
“Having spoken with him and learned more about his vision and the way he wants the team to play, I am even more excited for the future.
“I still have major ambitions in the game, there is a huge amount that I know I can achieve, and this is the perfect place to continue my journey.”
