Eriksen and Inter 'are set to mutually terminate his contract before 2022' as he is banned from playing in Serie A

12/15/2021

CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN’S time at Inter Milan is set to come to an end with the player and club reportedly agreeing to terminate his contract.

The 29-year-old suffered a cardiac arrest in a Euro 2020 match between Denmark and Finland in June.

He received treatment on the pitch before being taken to hospital, where he was fitted with an ICD (Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator).

The device monitors his heart rhythm and can also send shocks to the heart if necessary.

The Italian FA had announced he would only be allowed to return to Serie A action if he was deemed fit enough to play.

And crucially officials said his fitness must not involve a reliance on the ICD heart-starter.

The playmaker only returned to training this month at one of his former clubs – Danish outfit Odense Boldklub.

But without the ICD removed he will not be eligible to play in Serie A under rules laid out by the Italian Olympic Committee, which governs sport in the country.

A sensational return to former club Tottenham has at one point been mooted.

As has a homecoming move to Ajax, where the Dane started his career.

But with the Premier League and Dutch top flight hardly steps down from Italy, a permanent move back to Denmark is currently on the cards.
