PSG prepare €20m bid for Tottenham old boy as Man Utd watch on

Inter Milan are ready to cut their losses on Christian Eriksen, according to reports – but PSG will pose a serious threat to any hopes Tottenham had of luring him back.

Things have not gone to plan for Eriksen since leaving Tottenham for Inter in January. Just nine of his first 20 Serie A appearances have been starts – leaving him concerned about spending a season on the bench.

Therefore, Inter are seriously considering letting go of the playmaker just a year after buying him. And according to Todofichajes, PSG want him in January.

The report claims this is a “unique opportunity” for PSG, who want to add a world class player in the winter transfer window. They have been looking for a new attacking midfielder, and were considering a current Spurs star, Dele Alli, in the summer.

Now, it appears their attention has turned to someone who used to play for Tottenham instead. If Eriksen can recapture the form he previously showed in London, then he would be a smart signing for PSG.

Inter want to recoup the €20m they paid for Eriksen in January. And PSG are ready to make an offer as soon as the January window opens.

That would be disappointing news for Tottenham fans, after Spurs had been linked with a sensational bid to take Eriksen back.

After securing the return of one of their former heroes in Gareth Bale during the previous transfer window, there had been speculation that Tottenham could offer Eriksen a lifeline as well.

Man Utd also keen on Eriksen

However, Tottenham are not the only side who would consider taking Eriksen back to the Premier League.

According to Todofichajes‘ report, Manchester United are also keeping an eye on the 28-year-old.

The Red Devils were in the hunt for Eriksen before he joined Inter. They could reignite their interest now that his future is coming under question again.

In turn, that may force PSG to speed up their negotiations for the attacking midfielder.
