Christian Eriksen close to sealing £16.8m move from Tottenham to Inter Milan
Christian Eriksen is close to sealing a #16.8m move from Tottenham into Inter Milan that may see him earn up to #320,000 per week, according to Sky in Italy.
Spurs have been eager to market the brand new midfielder to prevent him leaving on a free transfer when his contract expires at the conclusion of the season.
Antonio Conte wants to add him and, while resources in England understand the deal has not yet been signed up, those in Italy think it is close to being agreed.
Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol told The Move Prove:”Daniel Levy looks like he’s going to get what he needs yet again.
“Spurs’ standing in the start was that they were not going to take less than $20m for Christian Eriksen although he’s only got six months left in his contract.
“Our information is that the bargain hasn’t been completed yet, but our colleagues at Sky Italy believe it is virtually agreed. They say that Christian Eriksen is currently going to treble his salary and it is going to be a 20m deal.
“He’s definitely going to be signing a four-and-a-half-year deal and he will be earning #260,000 a week. With bonuses that could go around #320,000 a week.”
One player who may be after Eriksen from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium entrance door is Danny Rose.
The left-back’s contract expires at the conclusion of this 2021/22 year and he made it clear in November 2019 that he plans to run down his deal prior to leaving the club.
But, Spurs are willing to allow Rose to depart with Premier League sides and are keen to avoid that scenario interested.
“Bournemouth, Newcastle and Watford are just three of those groups,” Sky Sports News reporter Dharmesh Sheth told The Transfer Show.
” All three want Danny Rose on a loan. Tottenham either want to market or at the very least have a loan which has an obligation to buy at the conclusion of the year added into it.
“That’s because Rose has got 18 months left on his contract and Tottenham don’t wish to be in a position as they are right now with Christian Eriksen.”
It’s recognized his absence from recent squads could soften his perspective, while Rose has made it clear that he doesn’t need to leave Spurs before his contract expires.
“I think things have shifted a bit,” explained Sheth. “He has not produced the 18-man squad at any of Jose Mourinho’s past 3 games.
“If this continues then you’d think Danny Rose will be very unlikely to push his way into the England squad for Euro 2020.
“So you’d have to think that a move now would suit not only Tottenham but also Danny Rose too”
