Inter and Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen will reportedly return to Milan next week to undergo medical examinations.
The 29-year-old suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch during Denmark’s opening UEFA Euro 2020 clash against Finland on June 12.
The former Tottenham Hotspur star had a defibrillator implanted, but his career in Serie A will be over if the device is permanent.
Any contact sport is forbidden in Italy with such a device implanted, while it is possible to continue playing in other leagues.

According to Tuttosport, Eriksen will be in Milan next week to meet his teammates, the new Inter coach Simone Inzaghi and undergo further medical examinations.
“I also spoke to Eriksen before the Euros, not after. I counted on him. Inter did a good job in signing Calhanoglu, who is an important player. Eriksen has time to come back, we are waiting for him with open arms,” Inzaghi ensured.
UEFA has invited Eriksen to attend the UEFA Euro 2020 Final between Italy and England at Wembley Stadium this evening.
Inter fans paid tribute to their playmaker signing “We are Christian Eriksen” outside the club’s training ground on Saturday.
