The conductor has arrived to the show: Inter signs Eriksen

A better player hasn't been sold for less money in recent years as Christian Eriksen arrives at Inter for a fee of €20,000,000.

Tottenham got its price finally but as much as Daniel Levy has been phenomenal in transfer negotiations these past years, that much has this sale been a steal. Eriksen is entering his prime and if his contract wasn't running out in the summer he would be sold for €70,000,000 at least.

Beppe Marotta, Inter's director of football, has once again brought value to his team. Antonio Conte is getting a prime midfield conductor that can make any team better. Inter announced the signing of the Dane with the message to Milano "your elegance is about to meet its match."

The 27-year-old played only for Ajax and Spurs in his career, and after six and a half years in London, he has signed a contract to stay in Milano until 2024. While earning €8,000,000 per year, reportedly.

"I couldn’t wait to join, it’s wonderful to be here and I’m happy to be a new Inter player. I’m very excited and can’t wait to introduce myself to the fans. I’ve already experienced their warmth, it’s been a fantastic welcome. I feel great," said the Denmark international.

Since his Premier League debut in September of 2013, Eriksen has assisted the most goals (62), created the most chances (571), scored the most goals from outside the box (23), and from direct free-kicks (8) in the competition! But he doesn't care about stats.

"I’m not really someone who places great importance on statistics but I know that there are people who like talking about this. The numbers say that I did really well in England. It’s now time to start a new challenge, I’m really happy to have the opportunity to play in Serie A for a big team. Inter is a fantastic club," said the Dane.

Inter has been the busiest team in Europe this January with three notable transfers as Ashley Young and Victor Moses joined the squad before Eriksen.
