The Denmark international has been in superb form this season and scouts from most of Europe's biggest clubs have flocked to Amsterdam to see him in action. 
Manchester City and Barcelona have both been strongly linked with the 19-year-old, but it now seems United are leading the race for his signature.
Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson is apparently ready to bid more than £20million to land Eriksen, who he believes could fill the gap left by the retirement of Paul Scholes.
A source told the Daily Star Sunday: 'United are hot on him. Trust me, they want him and £20million is the price being bandied around.
'Yet ironically both Chelsea and Spurs turned him down several years ago because they thought he was too small. He has since turned into a world-class player.'
Eriksen will be familiar to British football fans following his outstanding performance for Denmark in a friendly against England last season and goal against Scotland in August.
