CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN looks set to continue his miraculous footballing journey with a switch from Brentford to Manchester United this summer.
On June 12, 2021, Danish star Eriksen collapsed on the pitch in the game against Finland, to the distress of friends, family and his long-term partner Sabrina Kvist Jensen.
But who exactly is Sabrina and where will Christian Eriksen be playing his football next season?
Who is Sabrina Kvist?
Born in the town of Tommerup in Denmark, Sabrina currently lives with Eriksen.
A trained hairdresser, she prefers to keep a low profile and isn't one to hog the public limelight.
Sabrina originally stayed on the continent to complete her hairdressing education whilst Eriksen earned his stripes with Spurs, before moving to England where she worked for a clothing company.
The pair bought a house in Hampstead back in 2016, as the former Tottenham midfielder emerged as one of Europe's leading playmakers.
But the great Dane admitted that he'd found it hard to adjust to life in London and moved to Inter Milan.
He said in 2016: “You have to learn how to cope physically and mentally, but I can handle the pressure and the demands because I live seven days a week for my job.
“That is very tough for my girlfriend. Of course, I would like to go out in the city with her and friends, but it just doesn't fit in with playing in England."

Christian Eriksen collapsed in the 43rd minute during Denmark's Euro 2020 opener with Finland.

His distraught teammates formed a circle around the Inter Milan ace, with some in tears.
UEFA announced the Group B match has been suspended due to a "medical emergency."
The stadium announcer told fans that the game had been suspended due to a medical emergency and to stay in their seats.
Sabrina Kvist Jensen was seen in tears and being consoled by Danish players after she rushed down to the pitch.
It was confirmed afterwards that the star had suffered a cardiac arrest, from which he has since made a full recovery – but is yet to return to action.
How long has she been with Christian Eriksen?
One of football's quieter couples, the pair like to keep their private life behind closed doors.
Neither are often seen out in the hustle-bustle of London life and instead prefer quieter meals with friends.
They have been together since 2012.

Who did Christian Eriksen play for after his cardiac arrest?
Christian Eriksen mutually terminated his contract with Inter Milan before 2022 following his cardiac arrest at the Euro 2020 – with the Danish icon banned from playing in Italy whilst having a heart defibrillator.
However, in the latter stages of the January transfer window, London outfit Brentford confirmed the signing of Eriksen on a six-month contract.
And in that time, the midfield maestro managed five goal contributions in 11 matches, quickly becoming a fans favourite at the Brentford Community Stadium.
Who does Christian Eriksen play for now?
Brentford reportedly offered Eriksen a contract to stay on in London however, the Danish magician verbally AGREED a deal in principle to join Manchester United on a free transfer.
United legend Rio Ferdinand questioned what Eriksen's role will be at the club and even went as far as to label him a 'squad player'.
Ferdinand said: "He doesn’t come as a starter, I would be very surprised if he comes into Manchester United as a starter.
"I think he’ll come in and play a particular role in and around it.
"The position he is likely to occupy will be similar to Bruno Fernandes and I don’t see him taking him out of the team."
