Christian Eriksen’s time in the Serie A club might reach to an end this summer as the playmaker has been placed on the transfer market six months after joining due to his inflexibility.
After ditching Tottenham Hotspur, Eriksen moved to Inter Milan where after months, he has been placed on the transfer list. Inter Milan wants to get a good price for Eriksen and for £35 million, the club will be willing to let go of the playmaker.
The preferred 3-5-2 formation has often forced Eriksen to settle for a spot on the sidelines. On the contrary, the Italian coach is certain he can lead the club back to glory should they grant him his wish this summer.
The new Inter Milan will be formed around Conte’s philosophy and blueprint for the future. Between the two, none features the expensive outcast, Eriksen. In simple terms, Conte is eager for the error to be solved over the coming weeks.
Eriksen’s horror spell since heading to Milan has culminated in a lockdown nightmare. He has been unable to settle into his new surroundings and the fact that Italy has been ravaged by COVID-19 makes it worse.
The pandemic hindered him from finding a house in North Italy. This means the club’s training complex became his makeshift home. A stop from the police then added to the misery. Eriksen had been on his way to the supermarket and was promptly given a stern kicking off for breaking the stay-at-home guidelines in place.
The football suspension also prevented him from retaining his fitness levels. His wish to bounce back and defy critics has meant he wants to stay at the club.
Eriksen had even hoped to be considered an important part of the new project at Inter next season. However, he has found himself behind Roberto Gagliardini in the pecking order. But still, he remains determined to lead from the front.
The outcast has been unable to establish himself in Inter Milan. Therefore, inter believes offloading him now will prevent a potential tactical dilemma next season. According to Sportmediaset, Eriksen will be shipped out should the club’s valuation be met.
Having players capable and willing to race up and down at both ends of the field is crucial for Conte’s 3-5-2 set-up. Therefore, the manager views Eriksen as being solely a creative hub. He believes he is not capable of adopting and playing further forward.
