Inter Officially Bid Farewell to Christian Eriksen

Inter and Christian Eriksen have mutually agreed to rescind the contract. The midfielder visited the club’s HQ alongside his agent Martin Schoots to finalize its termination yesterday. He recently received confirmation from the doctors of the Italian Olympic Committee that he could not get the clearance to play in Serie A, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

Eriksen was fitted with an IFD after collapsing on the pitch in the Euro 2020 game between Denmark and Finland. However, the regulations on the matter are laxer in other countries, and he could resume his career elsewhere if he wishes to. The 29-year-old has been practicing in his home town Odense, his first team, in recent weeks. Ajax could also be an option.

Eriksen spent 689 days as an Inter player, as he joined from Tottenham for €27M in January of 2020. It took him a while to hit his stride in Serie A. He eventually became a linchpin of the formation with Antonio Conte at the helm and was instrumental in their title run. He had three more years left on his contract.

The Nerazzurri are planning to host him for a home game in 2022 to greet fans. Eriksen appeared in 60 matches with Inter, scoring 8 goals and providing 3 assists. His most memorable moment at San Siro was a successful free-kick from distance in a Derby with Milan. The club will register a loss on the balance sheets. However, they should be able to recoup most of the money through UEFA and a private insurance.
