Madrid gets advantage: Inter prepares shocking swap Deal ‘Eriksen for Regulion’


Even though he only just arrived in January, Christian Eriksen doesn’t seem to fit into Antonio Conte’s plans and could be put on the market.

Meanwhile, Inter are also looking for a left-back and are being linked with Sergio Reguilon.


Valero believes Eriksen ‘only needs time’ to flourish for Inter


Borja Valero believes Christian Eriksen ‘only needs time’ to flourish for Inter and that ‘it’s better if Lautaro Martinez stays’.


Valero began by passing judgment on Inter teammate Marcelo Brozovic, who has become a crucial component for the Nerazzurri in recent seasons.

“In the three years I’ve been playing for Inter, he has grown a huge amount,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Over time he realised how strong he was and took possession of a new role, as a ‘regista’. He can grow further.”

Eriksen failed to record a goal or assist in his domestic appearances before the coronavirus break, but the Spaniard has every faith in his ability to shine.

“Eriksen arrived midseason. He played for Tottenham the week before, and a week later he changed league, country, language, training: it’s not easy.


“The stop came just as he was hitting form. He has everything to succeed at Inter, he only needs time.”

Finally, the veteran advised Lautaro Martinez to ignore interest from Barcelona and help the Beneamata’s project ‘take off’.

“We have a very important project here, which is for all to see. For it to take off, it’s better if he stays.”



Eriksen wants to prove his worth to Inter when season resumes

Christian Eriksen will attempt to make up lost ground and prove his worth to Inter when football returns according to a report in today’s print edition of Corriere dello Sport.
The Danish national team midfielder joined the club in a circa €20 million deal from Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur back in January but his acclimatisation to Italian football was abruptly interrupted due to the outbreak of the ongoing global Coronavirus pandemic.

In the games he managed to play upon joining before football was brought to a halt, the 28-year-old did not exactly live up to expectations and he has only shown a few flashes of what everyone knows he is capable of.

The report from the Rome based newspaper goes on to state that Inter manager Antonio Conte is currently studying potential changes he could make to the team and Eriksen could well become decisive for Inter.

Since joining Inter, Eriksen has made eight appearances across all competitions, in which he has scored one goal and provided a single assist.


D.Alli Sad To See Eriksen leave For Inter

Dele Alli Admits He Was Sad to See Christian Eriksen Leave Tottenham for inter…

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli has confessed that he was sad to see Denmark international Christian Eriksen leave the club during the January transfer window.

Eriksen had rejected offers of a new contract at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and wanted to leave last summer, but a move never materialised and so was prepared to walk away for free at the end of the season. Spurs eventually accepted an offer from Inter for around £16.9m.

Dele Alli
Both Eriksen and Alli had been vital players for the club in recent seasons, and the Englishman admitted (via the Evening Standard) that he will miss having someone of Eriksen’s quality around.

“Chris is an amazing player, but it came to that point where he wanted to move on,” Alli admitted.

“It was sad for me and the other boys because he got on with everyone, he was a great squad player, he got on well, he was great in training and always working hard on the pitch.

“He gave me a lot of assists as well and I am going to miss them, but at the same time I wish him all the best and I am sure we will speak soon, maybe go for dinner.”

Amid all the transfer drama, Eriksen’s form undoubtedly took a nosedive. He managed just three goals and three assists during the first half of the season, and his inconsistency saw him booed by Spurs supporters during matches for a perceived lack of interest.

“He’s been amazing,” Alli insisted. “You don’t want to speak to him too much about what is going on but he has been giving 100%, always been training hard, always been committed to the club.

Christian Eriksen

“You read a lot and see a lot but you would never be able to tell that he wasn’t focused. He was always positive and never really spoke about anything other than Tottenham. It is a huge honour to have played with him and I wish him all the best.”

After making his debut in a Coppa Italia victory over Fiorentina, Eriksen was handed his first start for Inter in Sunday’s 2-0 win over Udinese.


Eriksen Reveals Why He Left Tottenham

José Mourinho Reveals When Christian Eriksen Told Him There Was ‘No Way’ He Would Stay at spurs…

José Mourinho has revealed that Christian Eriksen told him there was ‘no way’ he would be staying at Tottenham on the Spurs boss’ first day in charge at the club.

Eriksen was long linked with a move away from north London before he finally sealed a £17m switch to Inter earlier this week. The Dane’s departure ended a six and a half season association with Spurs, during which he made over 300 appearances in all competitions.

Christian Eriksen

When Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino in November, Eriksen had just seven months remaining on his contract and midfielder was always clear to the 57-year-old about his desire to leave.

“The day I arrived he told me he was not going to sign,’ the former Chelsea boss claimed. “Christian told me the decision was made and there was no way. From that moment I was just trying to build the team without him. That was the reason why I didn’t play him many, many times.

“It was down to me and Mr Levy to manage the situation in an intelligent way. For me, to try to have a player without great motivations but with a good sense of professionalism to give us what he could. And for Mr Levy to do a great deal with six months on his contract.”

Jose Mourinho
Mourinho also revealed his belief that speculation over Eriksen’s future negatively affected the playmaker’s performances on the pitch.

“Christian was a good guy in the dressing room. Always positive and always respectful with the limitations of somebody that wants to leave because there are always limitations in this situation. You could feel in some matches he was not Christian; that is normal,” he explained.

Eriksen was not the only prominent player to leave Spurs in January with Danny Rose joining Newcastle on loan until the end of the season.

Mourinho has also made moves to bolster his squad, bringing in Gedson Fernandes from Benfica and Steven Bergwijn from PSV Eindhoven. Spurs host Manchester City on Sunday and both Bergwijn and Fernandes could be in line for starts.


Giovani, best to replace Eriksen in Tottenham ..

With Christian Eriksen not at Inter, Giovani Lo Celso’s emergence, and permanent signing, couldn’t have come at a better time for Spurs fans.

His performance against Southampton at the weekend showed once again that he could be the perfect replacement for the Dane, with the Argentine helping to secure a 1-1 draw against a high-flying Saints side in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Spurs flattered to deceive at St. Mary’s, but Mourinho will be delighted to know that he is already in possession of a worthy Eriksen replacement – putting his transfer headaches to rest (in that department, at least).

Since his arrival in north London from Real Betis back in August, the midfielder initially struggled to find his feet in the Premier League. There were high expectations surrounding Lo Celso’s arrival, with supporters eager to see what the young playmaker could bring to England’s top tier – but the 23-year-old ended up spending the majority of his time sidelined with injury.

However, over the past few weeks, Lo Celso has proved exactly what he’s capable of.

He was crucial in the lead up to Tottenham’s only goal on Saturday, charging past the likes of James Ward-Prowse and Moussa Djenepo before providing a superb pass to Erik Lamela in the lead up to the goal.

Lo Celso then nearly got on the scoresheet himself, slamming the ball in the middle of the net in the first half hour of the game, only for the officials to disallow the goal. It was his work in the latter stages of the match which really caught the eyes of supporters though, with the young star running the centre of midfield, switching from the right wing after new signing Gedson Fernandes was taken off in the early moments of the second half.

One aspect that will make Lo Celso the perfect replacement for Eriksen is his ability to dribble past his opponents. Once Fernandes came off, the Argentine was free to glide past Southampton players effortlessly.

Lo Celso pairs that dribbling ability with an impressive passing range and technical ability. It’s a set of attributes that will be valuable to Mourinho as he looks to encourage his side to make quick transitions and to get the ball up the field, making him a crucial component of this current Tottenham side.

Although he has shown his worth in central midfield, he can also perform as a winger or in a deeper role on the pitch, making him an extremely versatile player. In Tottenham’s game against Norwich, Lo Celso excelled as a more deep-lying midfielder, playing as an interceptor for quick attacks.

With Mourinho constantly testing his best possible midfield, a flexible player who can perform well in various roles is just the type of man the Portuguese boss needs.


Tottenham’s Eriksen transfer bid to Inter Milan: Mourinho speaks

Tottenham have not received a transfer bid for Christian Eriksen and the midfielder will play against Watford on Saturday, says manager Jose Mourinho.

The Dane is out of contract in the summer and has been linked with a January move to Inter Milan.

The 27-year-old, who joined Spurs in 2013, has featured in 18 of 22 Premier League games so far this season.

“You have to ask the agent and Inter because they know more than me,” said Mourinho on Friday.

“If they are confident it is because they are ready to make us an offer, which didn’t happen yet.”


Inter Milan offer Christian Eriksen 4 year contract

...€20m bid offer ready

Italian outfit Inter have offered Christian Eriksen a four-year contract and are preparing to submit a €20m bid to Tottenham this month.

The Denmark international is in the last six months of his contract in north London and is free to talk to clubs abroad over possible moves at the end of the season.

Tottenham have even given Eriksen a measly €20m price tag as they look to avoid losing him on a free transfer, with The Guardian’s Fabrizio Romano confirming that the asking price is being considered by Antonio Conte’s Inter.

Jose Mourinho,Christian Eriksen
The Italian side initially approached Eriksen’s agent, Martin Schoots, with a four-year contract with the view of completing a deal for the end of the season, but the 28-year-old’s low price is making the club weigh up a move this month.

Gianluca Di Marzio adds that Inter could even look to offer Uruguay international Matías Vecino as part of any move for Eriksen this month.

It isn’t suggested one way or the other whether Tottenham would be interested in signing Vecino during the January transfer window.

The Nerazzurri have already held talks with Eriksen’s agent, while Paris Saint-Germain are also expected to hold talks in the coming days.

It’s unknown if Harry Kane’s recent injury could impact Tottenham’s stance over selling Eriksen this month, although an extra €20m (roughly £17m) would assist the club in their efforts to find a stop-gap during the January transfer window.

Christian Eriksen

Spurs have most notably been linked with a move for AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piątek, but they’ve also been keeping an eye on Celtic’s Odsonne Edouard – although he won’t be available until the summer transfer window.

If Tottenham are looking to promote from within, however, then Troy Parrott could be given the chance to become the fourth young Republic of Ireland striker to make an impact at a senior level in England this season.



Inter joins PSG for Tottenham’s Eriksen bid.

Inter are keeping tabs on Christian Eriksen’s situation, with the Italian side eager to secure the Dane’s signature in the summer when his contract expires, while Tottenham are more keen on a January departure.

Eriksen’s future has been a huge topic of debate during recent transfer windows, with the playmaker unwilling to commit his future to the club and instead seeking to depart the club when his contract expires in June, or potentially even before that

That’s not what Inter are hoping for, though, according to Gianluca Di Marzio. They would like Eriksen to see out his contract with Spurs and join them for free in the summer, with Antonio Conte a big fan of the midfielder’s talents. Inter’s directors have already begun contacts with Eriksen’s agents, with a view to making that dream a reality.

However, Tottenham are resigned to losing Eriksen, therefore would prefer to see him sold for a fee this window. Di Marzio adds that they would be willing to part with the Danish international for a fee of €20m, which they deem a fair valuation given the length of his contract remaining.

The Serie A side may be forced to act quickly in that sense, while the report also adds other circumstances may too force their hand early. They revolve around the club’s pursuit of Arturo Vidal, who Inter are aiming to bring in from Barcelona this January.

Conte would prefer to make immediate additions to his squad, as he looks to end Juventus’ run of eight successive Scudetti. It is added that should the club be unable to add Vidal during the winter window then their pursuit of Eriksen will be ramped up, and a January deal a more likely possibility.

Equally, if they do move this window, it will give them a better chance of securing the Dane’s signature, as the likes of Manchester United, Real Madrid and PSG wait in the wings to snap him up for free in the summer


Manchester United targets another midfielder.

Christian Eriksen when his contract expires at the end of the season.

The Dane has made it clear that he does not want to sign a new contract in north London, and manager José Mourinho recently admitted that Eriksen has already informed him of his next move.

Christian Eriksen

In January, Eriksen will be free to discuss a new contract with any overseas sides, but Premier League clubs like United must wait until the summer. According to The Telegraph, United are confident that they will be able to do exactly that.

Eriksen is unlikely to leave in January as clubs around Europe do not want to pay £40m for a player who will be available for free in six months, so it will come down to whether any overseas clubs move first.

Real Madrid are no longer as keen as they were during the summer, but there is expected to be competition from Juventus and Inter – both of whom can speak with Eriksen in a matter of days ahead of a potential summer move.

Christian Eriksen
However, United are understood to believe that they will be able to land Eriksen in the summer, although they are looking at other midfield options just in case they end up missing out on his signature.

The other name mentioned is Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish. The 24-year-old, who has managed seven goals and six assists this season, remains under contract at Villa Park until 2023, and United are aware that signing him could potentially be tricky.

He is committed to Villa, but United are waiting to see whether he will be made available for transfer if Dean Smith’s side end up being relegated from the Premier League.

Jack Grealish
Villa currently sit in the relegation zone in 18th, so that is certainly not out of the question. Grealish has certainly proven to be good enough to play in the top flight, so he may look to leave if he is faced with another spell in the Championship.

Midfield is an area in which United have struggled this season, and it appears as though Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is targeting at least one high-profile signing to try and address their problems in the summer.


Mourinho:I know Eriksen’s future plan.

Tottenham Hotspur manager José Mourinho claims he already knows what Christian Eriksen’s future holds – but is refusing to shed any light on the situation publicly.

The Denmark international is heading into the final few months of his contract and has been heavily linked with a move away from Tottenham, either during the January window or on a free transfer at the end of the season.

Jose Mourinho,Christian Eriksen
Mourinho’s already convinced Toby Alderweireld to sign a contract extension at Tottenham and the Portuguese manager claims he also knows what Eriksen’s plans are ahead of the January transfer window.

“I think I know his future because his communication with me is completely open and honest and we trust each other,” Mourinho said, quoted by AS.

“The only thing I can tell you is that I know his future but I am not going to be the one to speak about his future. It has to be him to speak about his future when he makes the decision to speak about his future, not me.”

Even though Mourinho wouldn’t reveal where Eriksen’s future lies, the Portuguese manager was eager to add that the midfielder’s contract situation hasn’t taken away from his desire to help the club this season.

“My sensation is that Eriksen wants to help us,” he added. “That’s why I play him when we need someone with his qualities.”

Although it’s unknown if Eriksen will be set to follow in Alderweireld’s footsteps by signing a new long-term contract, Eric Dier is set to be rewarded with a new deal as his importance in the first team continues to increase under Mourinho.

The 25-year-old’s current deal is set to expire in 2021, but Dier’s extension – which is believed to be work £75,000 a week – is likely to see him tied to the club at least until 2024.
