Report shares Inter’s stance on Spurs loaning Christian Eriksen

Spurs are the only side Inter Milan will not loan Christian Eriksen to for free, according to a report from Fabrizio Romano in Calciomercato.

Eriksen’s future remains up in the air. The Dane has endured a tough time since leaving Tottenham Hotspur for the Nerazzurri last January.

Calciomercato reports that he has been given the green light to leave Inter this month. And it is claimed that Jose Mourinho is interested in bringing him back to North London.

The report however, details a major stumbling block. According to Calciomercato, Tottenham are the only club that would have to pay a fee to take Eriksen on loan.

Other sides would have to cover the 28-year-old’s wages. But Inter would apparently be willing to forgo a loan fee if he headed anywhere else.

Calciomercato suggests that Inter do not want to loan Eriksen to Spurs for nothing because they paid Tottenham £16.9 million a year ago (fee reported by BBC Sport).

 

It is a bizarre move from Inter. And it will be interesting to see whether they dig their heels in should Spurs prove to be the only side that makes a move in this window.

Romano notes that Eriksen earns around £128,000-a-week at San Siro. So if he is barely going to play, it surely makes sense to offload him wherever they can.

And if Spurs are the only club prepared to take him, they must surely be willing to compromise over the loan fee.
