Christian Eriksen will be allowed to leave Inter Milan in January, club chief executive officer Beppe Marotta has confirmed.
The Danish international made the switch to the Serie A giants in January in a deal said to be in the region of £16.9million after having just six months to run on his existing deal at Tottenham Hotspur (BBC).
Eriksen made his intentions clear that he wanted to seek a new challenge away from North London just a matter of days after the Champions League final defeat to Liverpool in June of last year and despite inviting interest from Real Madrid, a move failed to materialise (Ekstra Bladet).
Marotta revealed that Inter have not received any offers for the midfielder and they will not stand in his way of a suitable bid is made.
The 28-year-old has started only four games in all competitions so far this season and he has been an unused substitute in the last three (transfermarkt).
“Yesterday, Conte answered in a very comprehensive way,” Marotta told DAZN, with the Inter boss having already been quizzed about Eriksen’s future.
“I clearly add that we will not hold a footballer back if they ask to be transferred. We will have to make the right evaluations.
“Conte is using [Eriksen] with respect for the player and the club. At the moment no offers have arrived, but at the appropriate time we will try to make the right decisions.”
