Inter Milan superstar could make a return to the Premier League.
Christian Eriksen is free to leave Inter Milan in January, club chief executive officer Beppe Marotta has confirmed.
The former Tottenham star, who signed for around twenty million pounds was bought on as the man to change the title race for the Nerazzurri but that wasn’t to be the case.
He has not settled in well to life in Serie A as he finds himself as an outcast in Antonio Conte’s plans and often left on the bench.
Eriksen who is the club’s highest earner has astonishingly completed ninety minutes only twice since moving to the Serie A club.
He’s currently behind Vidal and Barella in the pecking order and the club manager Antonio Conte is frustrated with Dane’s behavior in the press after recently complaining about the lack of playtime at the club.
It looks like the relationship between the pair is beyond repair and the club are ready to sell him even if it means taking a loss. This has now been confirmed by Marotta, who says the club are ready to listen to offers for the former Tottenham man.
Yesterday, Conte answered in a very comprehensive way,” Marotta told DAZN, with the head coach having already been asked about Eriksen’s long-term future.
“I clearly add that we will not hold a footballer back if they ask to be transferred. We will have to make the right evaluations”
Inter Milan are hoping to find a swap-deal for the Danish international in January, according to Corriere dello Sport.
Inter Milan want Manchester United’s Fred or Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka for Eriksen and are currently working on it. But as things stand, both the deals look unlikely as both the players mentioned above are very important squad members for their respective teams, and both the club managers would unlikely sanction a move.
As things stand it looks like French champions PSG will likely end up getting Eriksen with Argentine Leonardo Paredes moving in the opposite direction.
