Inter Milan emerge as potential suitors for Christian Eriksen
The Danish superstar had been angling for a move since the end of last season. Manchester United and Real Madrid were interested in him but nothing came to fruition and the player stayed at Spurs.
With his contract expiring in the summer, Eriksen has refused to sign an extension and is free to start talking to clubs this month (h/t Athletic).
The player angling for a move in January does come as bad news for United, who were keen on signing the player for free in the summer.
Having to rebuild the team on limited funds, Spurs would be better off if Eriksen leaves now rather than the summer. The money received from the sale can be reinvested in the squad as Jose Mourinho needs to bring in fresh blood.

Inter have been in touch with Eriksen’s representatives, although they are prioritizing the signature of Barcelona’s Arturo Vidal (h/t Daily Express).
Signed from Ajax Amsterdam in 2014, Eriksen has been a mainstay in an impressive Spurs side under Pochettino that reached the UEFA Champions League final last season.

Losing a player of Eriksen’s ability will be a huge blow for Spurs. However, we must rather sell a player who isn’t committed to the project in favour of new faces who can lead us into the new decade.
