Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy insists Manchester United fans will be "underwhelmed" by the signing of Christian Eriksen.

Off contract from Brentford, Eriksen has verbally agreed a three-year deal with United.

"I really like Eriksen, I've always admired him in terms of his creativity and the way he plays his football," Murphy told talkSPORT. "He tries things, he's good at set-plays, two good feet but would it excite me if I was a United fan? He's going to be a squad player, isn't he?

"He's not going to play instead of [Bruno] Fernandes."

When asked whether Eriksen is a "world class player", Murphy took no hesitation in answering.

"No. World class? Eriksen? No. No, no, no, no."
