Eriksen’s intentions were clear in summer, when he was very close to going to Manchester United in the hours before the market closed in England. Sources of the operation informed AS that the agreement was virtually imminent, but the deal unexpectedly fell apart for the player. There were two reasons in that maneuver that caught his foot changed in Old Trafford: he did not want, for personal reasons, to live in the United Kingdom (Italy, and specifically Juventus, was his other great wish) and, above all, he preferred to burn his bullets regarding his arrival in Madrid. From the end of the transfer window in England until the end of Spain, Eriksen kept the faith that in the offices of Madrid they would convince Zidane of the convenience of its reinforcement, for its football and for being a market opportunity. The Danish knew firsthand that Zizou had stopped his transfer. The Frenchman did not move from there and for the then still Tottenham player opened a period of uncertainty. Christian Eriksen (27 years old), You can keep saying now that he will not release him as a topic in a presentation with Real Madrid that will not occur, he dreamed of wearing white. The new signing of Inter waited for it until it could not do more and, aware that Zidane did not love him, even having a pre-agreement with the Madrid club, he has accepted the Milanese proposal. If the question of what would happen to his future did not worry Eriksen too much, it was because he had the advantage of finishing the contract in 2020. Levy had to accept a reasonable price for him, finally about 20 million euros, or Tottenham would see him leave for free in July. His departure from London is the result of the exhaustion of Eriksen’s patience and a Zidane election backed by the passage of time: Danish is a very interesting player at a bargain price, but Madrid has managed perfectly without him.
