Spurs playmaker Christian Eriksen has reportedly agreed to a contract with Inter Milan until 2024.
According to Gary Jacob at The Times, the Danish schemer will earn around £100,000 per week after tax.
Daniel Levy and the Tottenham board are understood to be keen to cash in on one of their prized assets instead of risking losing the player for free in a year's time. Eriksen's deal expires in the next British summer and Spurs reportedly want £20m for him now.
La Gazzetta dello Sport believes that that the fee will be closer to £17m and key meetings regarding a transfer will happen on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
Eriksen has reduced his wage demands from an annual salary of £8.5 million (£163,000 per week) to £6.5 million (£125,000 per week) to help push through a move.
Inter's hand is further strengthened by a Growth Decree from the Italian government which provides them with a 50% reduction on tax.
The 27-year-old midfielder has scored 69 goals and provided 89 assists in 302 appearances for the North London club, but his return of three goals & three assists in 25 games during the 2019/2020 season underlines how unsettled and marginalised he has become.
Spurs boss Jose Mourinho has revealed that Eriksen will feature in tonight's FA Cup 3rd round replay against Middlesbrough and could also be in line to get minutes against Watford on the weekend in the Premier League.
Eriksen did start Tottenham's 1-0 loss on the weekend against Liverpool but he failed to impress, and a section of the Spurs support made their feelings on the player known with audible boos ringing around.
A move to Inter could make a lot of sense for a player at the peak of his powers but who has fallen out of favour with Mourinho.
Christia Eriksen has hit double figures for goals & assists in five of his six full seasons at Tottenham so Inter would be getting a top-class player.
