Everything will be judged next quarter for Eriksen
Christian Eriksen remained at Inter after the summer transfer window and has three months ahead of him to change the data.
Christian Eriksen was Inter's big transfer last winter. The Nerazzurri wanted the Dane very much and did everything to get him. For some, they even paid goodwill for him. Eriksen had a contract with Inter until the summer of 2020 and had made it clear to the team that he was not going to renew. He wanted a new experience in his career and a new challenge. Under this condition, the teams were waiting for January to arrive to start offering him contracts for when he will be free. But not Inter.
Antonio Conte's team immediately wanted Eriksen and did not think to wait. At the same time, he wanted to avoid the competition and the "crowding" that would take place for his signing. So, he offered 27 million euros to Tottenham for a player who would be free in six months and closed the footballer. His transfer was combined with a very positive atmosphere and the footballer came to seal that the Nerazzurri returned for good. But all this went for a walk…
Eriksen never performed as expected. He never adapted to his new team and the new conditions of the Italian championship and quickly began to lose the trust of Antonio Conte. A solution for the bench was quickly made, until we reached the summer "peak". Inter tried to get rid of Eriksen a few months after his transfer to the team. the player was considered a burden that the team had to get rid of. Somehow it was proposed to groups without finding a solution. A more typical example is Dortmund, to which Eriksen himself answered in the negative. In fact, the people of Inter were surprised by this development.
The critical quarter
According to "Tuttorsport", everything will be judged next quarter. Christian Eriksen is not in the choices of Antonio Conte and if his playing image does not change, he will hardly be able to remain on the roster. That is why the possibility of his leaving the team in the next transfer window remains open. Eriksen cost 27.5 million euros to come from Tottenham. Now Inter to ask for about 50 million to transfer him.
