Inter Milan midfielder Christian Eriksen is reportedly hoping to make his return to professional football next year – but with a different club.
Eriksen has been out of action ever since suffering a cardiac arrest in Denmark’s opening fixture of the Euro 2020 tournament.
The Dane is now on the comeback trail, having had an ICD fitted in his chest in order to regulate any further disturbances in his normal heartbeat rhythm.
However, Serie A rules state that no player can compete in the competition while having such a device fitted. As a result, Eriksen is set to leave Inter.
According to La Gazzetta, Eriksen is hoping to return to professional football in 2022, with both he and Inter aware that cannot happen at the San Siro.
