Jose Mourinho has confirmed Christian Eriksen will feature against Watford on Saturday despite ongoing uncertainty around his immediate future.
Eriksen is edging closer to a move to Inter Milan, though the Serie A club are yet to submit an official bid as talks continue between his agent and Inter chief executive Giuseppe Marotta.
He said: “You have to ask the agent and Inter because they know more than me.
“If they are confident it is because they are ready to make us an offer, which didn’t happen yet.
“When I see people speaking, especially people with responsibilities, it makes me surprised. He is trying to do his best and it is normal until January 31 his brain is not totally focused.
“It is a normal consequence of the situation. I still don’t understand that optimism. For a few matches people are saying he is playing his last game. Eriksen plays tomorrow.”
