Danish national team midfielder Christian Eriksen finally chose to join Inter Milan. In fact, they are known to get a number of attractive offers from other clubs. So, what is the reason the player prefers to move closer to the San Siro?
The issue of Eriksen’s departure from Tottenham Hotspur has been heard since last summer. At that time, the player turned down a new contract offer from the London Club. Spurs are clearly worried, because Eriksen’s contract remains until the end of this 2019/20 season.
In the end, the Danish player didn’t go anywhere. However, this issue continues, and again stirred as the opening of the winter transfer window throughout January 2020 yesterday.
Of course it’s a golden opportunity for Tottenham to sell Eriksen, rather than the player leaving for free in the transfer market next summer. A number of clubs then claimed to be interested in getting the services of the 27-year-old player.
However, Eriksen finally agreed to join Inter Milan. In fact, reportedly there are Real Madrid and Manchester United who are interested in the service. However, Eriksen had a reason why he chose to join the Nerazzurri.
He acknowledged the approach taken by many clubs, but when Inter Milan cast an offer, Eriksen did not think twice. That is because according to him, the Serie A giants have the potential to win the championship trophy.
The title has always been coveted by the former Ajax player, he sees Inter as more likely to win than Tottenham.
“I have been approached by many clubs, but Inter’s offer is concrete and promising. I can also easily see my role here, so it’s easy for me to say yes. “I came to win a trophy, the last time I lifted a trophy while I was at Ajax, and there was a greater chance of winning a trophy here than at my previous place,” said the player.
During approximately seven years of a career in the Premier League with Tottenham Hotspur, Eriksen is indeed known as one of the best midfielders. Unfortunately, he never felt the title with the club.
While Inter Milan does look promising this season. They can compete in the Scudetto hunt under the direction of Antonio Conte.
