According to reports in Italy, Christian Eriksen will terminate his contract with Inter in January as he won’t be allowed to play in Italy with an ICD implanted.
According to Calciomercato.com, doctors will give their verdict over Eriksen’s availability to play in Italy next week.
However, the outcome appears obvious as Eriksen had an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) device implanted in June after collapsing on the pitch due to a heart attack during Denmark-Finland.
Eriksen returned to training in Denmark with his former club Odense this week as he is not allowed to play or train in Italy with such a device implanted.
“We are delighted that Christian Eriksen is keeping in shape right with us,” the club’s sporting director Michael Hemmingsen told Bt.dk.
According to the report, Inter will terminate Eriksen’s contract by mutual agreement at the beginning of 2022.
Eriksen’s €7m-a-year contract with Inter expires in June 2024 and his salary has been covered by FIFA insurance which guarantees to the club up to €7.5m for one year.
