Christian Eriksen might find himself back on the market this summer, just months after his protracted departure from Tottenham.
Gazzetta Dello Sport reports that the Danish playmaker is already having second thoughts about his January decision to join Inter Milan, where he struggled to assert himself on Antonio Conte’s team before the lockdown, making three starts and a further five appearances as a substitute.
The Italian outlet adds that Conte is still in the market for two players who would rival Eriksen’s midfield place in the former Chelsea manager’s beloved 3-5-2- Barcelona’s Arturo Vidal and Brescia’s Sandro Tonali. It’s not a formation that suits Eriksen and Conte isn’t changing for anyone.
Which begs the question; why would Inter sign the 27-year-old?
Eriksen could be looking for a new club again if clear the air talks planned with Conte for the Serie A season’s resumption go pear shaped. The report is clear that Eriksen will not stay at Inter to sit on the bench. It also claims that our former assist king feels disrespected by Inter’s treatment of him. And we know he ain’t the type to knuckle down and prove them wrong.
Could they be about to pull the heist of the century and put Eriksen back in the shop window? At probably three times the £17.7m they paid for him – fee according to the Daily Mail. On a long-term contract, transfermarkt.com now values Eriksen at £61.2m. That’s our money, they’d be making off him.
