The last twelve months have been somewhat of a nightmare for Christian Eriksen after his move to Inter Milan has not worked out how he would have hoped for.

He does not appear to have won Antonio Conte over and reports indicate that the Nerrazuri could be open to selling the Dane when the transfer window reopens in January (Football Insider).

Back in January, the deal certainly looked to be the right one for all parties involved with the reported £16.9million fee representing a decent return for Spurs considering the midfielder only had six months to run on his contract.

The fee also appeared to be a bargain for Inter especially for a playmaker of Eriksen’s established quality.

However, according to Calcio e Finanza (as relayed by Sport Witness), the Serie A club ended up paying around €27.5million (£24.7million) for the 28-year-old in January, with €7.5million (£6.7million) of that figure being paid as agent fees.

There was a scene in Amazon’s behind the scenes documentary of Tottenham’s 2019-20 season that showed Daniel Levy complaining about how difficult Erisken’s agent was to work with and the lack of communication between him and the club.

It now looks like the former Tottenham man’s agent profited considerably from his client’s move to Inter.
