Inter CEO Beppe Marotta has confirmed Christian Eriksen could leave in January.
The Denmark international starts on the bench against Torino today.
“I always say that I make the choices for the good of Inter,” Antonio Conte said at a press conference on the eve of the game.
“I think Christian had plenty of opportunities, he played more than other players. He will start or come off the bench when I deem it appropriate, otherwise I will make other decisions.”
“Conte replied exhaustively, I add that a club should never hold a player if he asks to leave,” Marotta told Dazn.
“Eriksen is behaving like a professional, he is a player available to Conte and what the coach does is in respect of the player and the club.
“Eriksen hasn’t made any request but when the right time comes we’ll try to find the right combinations.”
The Nerazzurri could soon begin talks to extend Alessandro Bastoni’s contract.
“When a player joins the national team is always something to be proud about. Bastoni has been improving and it’s fair to consider a different economic relationship as we trust the player.”
