Christian Eriksen has terminated his contract with Inter by mutual consent, as his agent notes ‘Italy is the only country he can’t play, but there are four clubs interested.’
The decision to part ways became inevitable after it became clear the Denmark international would not be given permission to resume professional football while he had an internal defibrillator implanted in his chest.
That is because the device is the sign of an on-going cardiac condition, ready to restart his heart if it should stop again.
“Christian wants to keep training in Milan, because that is where he and his family live, but Italy is the only country in which he is officially banned from practicing sport with an implanted defibrillator,” agent Martin Schoots told Ekstra Bladet.
“He is not even allowed to go into a gym to train there. However, he feels great, all the feedback we got from physical tests are very positive. There’s no reason not to dream or hope.”
With that in mind, Eriksen is looking for a new club to join in Europe and the favourites are a return to Ajax or Odense in Denmark.
“There are already four clubs who have asked for information on Christian’s situation. And yes, I can confirm a Danish side is among them.”
