FC Inter News are reporting that Tottenham Hotspur are unlikely to move to re-sign Christian Eriksen in January as the relationship between the midfielder and Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy is strained.
Eriksen has struggled to get regular game time since he left Spurs to join Inter Milan last January. He seems to have fallen further down the pecking order this season after Antonio Conte bolstered his midfield options during the summer transfer window.
Don Balon (via Calcio Mercato) reported at the end of last month that Inter have decided to put the Dane up for sale when the transfer window reopens in January, just a year after he moved to the San Siro.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano previously revealed that Tottenham made an enquiry to re-sign the midfielder on loan during the summer transfer window (Here We Go podcast).
FC Inter News has now backed up the claim that the Nerazzurri are looking to move the former Spurs midfielder on but they reveal that he is unlikely to return to North London.
They suggest that Eriksen burned his bridges with Spurs by threatening to run his contract down and leave on a free transfer, which did not sit well with Levy.
The Tottenham chairman is thus said to be unlikely to sanction a deal for the 28-year-old, while Jose Mourinho is also reportedly not keen on having him back.
