Eriksen Completes Inter Milan Medical After £17million Transfer Fee Agreed

Christian Eriksen has concluded his medicals at Inter Milan after completing a £17million move from Tottenham.

The Dane took a trip to Italy on Monday morning to finalize the deal after both clubs agreed on the fee.

The 27-year-old also posed for a cheeky picture with some members of the fan base as they seemed so elated to have the player in Milan.

The playmaker is reportedly set to earn as much as £320,000 pounds in wages while with the Nerazzuris.

The former Spurs man would be the latest of Premier League stars to pitch their tent with the Serie A giants after Ashley Young also joined from Manchester United this January transfer window.

Also, Victor Moses has joined the Nerazzuris from Inter Milan on loan this January.

Eriksen had on several occasions pushed for a move away from North London after repeatedly declining contract offers with the Jose Mounrinho-led side.

With the Dane’s mind away from North London, Tottenham thought it wise to recoup some money from his sale rather than let him leave on a free transfer.

Eriksen made a total of 309 appearances for Spurs, where he netted 69 times and provided 89 assists since he made the switch from Ajax in 2013.

However, he’s found the net on only three occasions this term and could only make the bench in Spurs’ FA Cup draw with Southampton.

Mourinho while speaking about the 27-year-old’s move said:

“If you ask me if I think this is the best Christian I have to be honest and say no.

“If you ask me if I know the reasons, I am not an idiot, I am in football for many years and know clearly a player in this situation is not a player that is even if he wants.

“I am not blaming or criticising the player, I am just saying it is normal a player in this situation doesn’t perform at the highest level.

“But I can also say that he is helping us in matches that he is playing with us.”
