Inter Milan: Christian Eriksen is no longer a Tottenham Hotspurs player

Finally on the move. Christian Eriksen‘s transfer to Inter has just been announced after completing his medical with his new club.

The saga entailing one of Tottenham’s most influential players has to come to an end… Finally! Spurs and Inter have agreed on a deal said to be worth £17 million (€20m).

After one of the most meandering transfer sagas in recent memory, the Danish midfielder has finally got his move away from Spurs. Christian Eriksen has completed his transfer away from Tottenham and signed for Inter for a reported €20 million (£17m/$22m) fee.

The playmaker has signed a four-year contract at San Siro, and could be in line to make his debut in a Serie A clash away at Udinese this weekend – but is unlikely to feature in Wednesday’s Coppa Italia clash against Fiorentina. (Via: Goal.com)

The departing club was growing extremely frustrated with the unresolved situation, where they felt the receiving club was taking forever and a day to finalize the deal.

Thankfully, the worse is behind them and all involved are happy the transfer has now been announced by the Serie A leaders,. One especially happy is Jose Mourinho – Who can now go on with his business improving Tottenham.

Mourinho had this to say before the removal was completed.

I don’t want to say anything. I just want to say that this situation shouldn’t happen on the 25th on January. And it is not Tottenham’s fault. (via: Twitter-@jonathandveal83)

The show must go on

It’s clear to see the Italians were playing hardball with a player wanting out of the club. Well done to Tottenham for holding firm in their evaluation of one of the brightest stars (an evaluation for a world-class playmaker in the finals of his contract). And yes, I do believe Inter has done great business here.

The holdup was bad for the North Londoners, as finding a suitable replacement could have taken a lot longer than it did. Thankfully, they have done just that and have wasted no time in finding a replacement for the huge hole left.

He was really the Danish magician for Spurs

It is really Tottenham’s own fault they are losing one of the best playmakers in the Premier League. No silverware since arriving at the club has made the decision to leave quite the simple one.

One cannot simply accuse Mourinho’s pulling power for being weak, as the damage was done far afore his time of arrival. He was sadly the one who had to deal with the want-away player.
