After enduring a long speculation of leaving Tottenham Hotspur, Christian Eriksen has finally leave the London-based club to join Serie A title chaser, Inter Milan.
The 27-year-old departed after Spurs and Inter agreed for a €20m transfer fee and the Danish midfielder agreed a personal terms signed a four-and-a-half-year contract.
Eriksen joined Spurs from Ajax for £11.5m in August 2013 and proved to be a crucial player under the managerial of Mauricio Pochettino, turning the club into a title chaser and qualifying regularly in the Champions League.
The highlight on his career with Spurs when they reached last season’s Champions League final, losing 2-0 to Liverpool.
It was also the turning point for Spurs as they sacked Pochettino in November and Spurs desperately want to keep Eriksen who only have few months left in the contract but they eventually allowed him to leave after the appointment of Jose Mourinho as the new manager.
