Inter send warning to Tottenham over Eriksen return

Sky Sport Italia journalist Fabrizio Romano explains why Inter have decided Christian Eriksen can join any Premier League club except Tottenham on a free loan deal.

The Dane joined Inter in a €27m deal from Tottenham one year ago despite having his contract expiring at the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

For this reason, Inter won’t allow Eriksen to return to North London on a free loan move. In addition to that, Tottenham must pay Eriksen’s full wages if they want to welcome him back to the club.

Fabrizio Romano writes on José Mourinho want to sign Eriksen in January, but the Special One must deal with the conditions imposed by his former club.

Eriksen’s €7.5m-a-year salary is reportedly stalling is Inter exit, but the Nerazzurri are open to selling him on loan in the winter transfer window.

Intermediaries have begun talks with other Premier League clubs and Inter would allow the 27-year-old to join any other English side on a free loan deal, provided they pay the player’s full wages.
