Christian Eriksen signed for Inter Milan from Tottenham for a fee in the region of £17million on this day in 2020.
The Denmark international joined Inter on a four-and-a-half-year deal following six-and-a-half years with Spurs, where he scored 69 goals and provided 89 assists in 305 appearances.
Following his departure, Eriksen posted on X, formerly Twitter: “Dear Tottenham fans, I don’t know where to start!
“I have so many unbelievable memories over the last 6.5 years I was at Spurs.
“I enjoyed being at the training ground every day and playing games in the stadium so much, but sometimes you just want to try something new.
“So, Spurs fans it has been a pleasure to play at your club and hopefully we meet again in the future.”
Eriksen won a Serie A title with Inter, but left the club in December 2021 after suffering a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 during Denmark’s opener against Finland.
After receiving life-saving treatment on the pitch, he was taken to hospital and fitted with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) device.
Serie A rules stated that Eriksen would be unable to play with an ICD and an agreement was struck for him to leave.
He then signed for Brentford on a six-month deal in January 2022 before joining Manchester United that summer.
