Christian Eriksen has struggled in Serie A.
Ever since his move from Tottenham Hotspur to Inter Milan, the Denmark international has struggled to fit in.
He has made a total of 33 appearances for the club but just 15 of those have been starts, scoring four goals and laying on three assists.
Antonio Conte does not appear to rate the former Spurs star all that highly, and it appears that the 28-year-old could well be on his way out of the San Siro just as quickly as he arrived.
Indeed, Sport Witness carries a report from Corriere dello Sport claiming that the playmaker wants to leave and is pining for a return to the Premier League.
The Italian outlet claims that there is legitimate interest from two English clubs: Arsenal and Manchester United.
The latter are given more of a mention, which may not come as a surprise given Eriksen’s Spurs ties, and it appears that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on a deal.
He is said to be looking for a ‘regista’ in midfield, and United are keen to strike a bargain deal.
Indeed, the report claims that they are trying to exploit Eriksen’s somewhat fractured relationship with Inter in order to get a deal done.
He has a lengthy contract at the club which runs until 2024 and he is valued at £45m by Transfermarkt but that fee could fall dramatically if all parties want the switch to happen.
GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…
The irony of this.
Eriksen wanted out of Spurs as he was desperate to take on a new challenge in a new culture, namely a new foreign league.
Now he is desperately seeking a way back to the Premier League after finding out that the grass isn’t always greener.
One can forgive Spurs fans for chortling.
However, it remains to be seen if he would actually get in the United team; they do have Bruno Fernandes, after all, along with Donny van de Beek and Paul Pogba.
It would be an odd move for both parties, and Eriksen really needs to think twice before accepting a switch to Old Trafford; he could well find himself on the bench all over again.News Now - Sport News
