Inter Milan took revenge on Tottenham chief Daniel Levy by not sending Christian Eriksen on loan
A report by Calciomercato, via Sport Witness (h/t Express) mentions that Inter Milan did not send Christian Eriksen on loan to Tottenham Hotspur without them paying a loan fee and a portion of his fees.
This is due to Inter wanting to take revenge on Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy. The Serie A side signed Eriksen in January last year, but it did not come easy.
Levy was not willing to budge on the transfer fee for the Danish midfielder. Inter only got their midfielder when Jose Mourinho sanctioned the move for the out-of-favour Eriksen. (h/t Express)
Since his transfer, he has had an underwhelming spell in Italy. Antonio Conte has not made him a regular starter and Eriksen was made available in the January transfer window last month.
According to the report, a host of clubs were interested, including Leicester City, Manchester United, and Paris Saint-Germain. Tottenham were also happy to bring him in until the end of the season.
However, that did not materialize. Eriksen could have been a great replacement for Dele Alli, who was linked with a move away from Spurs in January.
Both of those moves fell through as Alli stayed at Tottenham while Eriksen did not leave San Siro. Spurs could have used a creative midfielder like the 29-year-old.
He is tested in the Premier League and was one of the club’s most important players under Mauricio Pochettino. Spurs’ fortunes could have also been different had they signed him in January.
