Christian Eriksen to join Inter Milan for £16.7 million
Eriksen’s future had been uncertain for the longest time but the report adds that he will fly to Milan for his medical early next week.
Although losing him does leave a bitter taste, it is great that we have managed to acquire a considerable fee. Eriksen has been a mainstay in our midfield since 2013 and will leave behind a legacy as one of the club’s best players in the Premier League era.
The End and the Beginning
Eriksen was part of what was arguably Tottenham’s best Premier League team. He played a crucial role in the midfield and in many ways, the Champions League final loss to Liverpool was the last hurrah. Jose Mourinho now has an opportunity to rebuild a side that seems to have run out of inspiration.
However, Tottenham have done well to orchestrate a deal now instead of losing the player for free in the summer. The 27-year-old’s departure will provide the likes of Giovani Lo Celso and Gedson Fernandes with more opportunities to express.
