Eriksen revealed during an interview with the club that the so-called Theatre of Dreams was always a special place to visit whilst at his former clubs.

The 30-year-old star said the stadium was always a special place to visit as a Brentford player

‘[It’s] the perfect place to do it, at Old Trafford. It will be fun to see the fans in stadium,’ he told the club website.

‘The atmosphere in the stadium was very nice [when I played here previously]. It was a very, very good feeling and an impressive atmosphere.

‘[Matches at Old Trafford have] always been very good.  There have been some very tough games in between, but always good memories.

‘It’s always been very special to play at Old Trafford. In general, playing against such a big club like Manchester United, there’s always something with it. 

‘Like I said, it’s going to be weird being on the other side.’

The Red Devils host Brighton on Sunday August 7 during the opening weekend of the season and return to Old Trafford two weeks later to face rivals Liverpool.

Still yet to make his first appearance since arriving at the club, Eriksen could feature in Man United’s final two pre-season matches against Atletico Madrid and Rayo Vallecano this weekend.
