Inter and Christian Eriksen have terminated the Dane’s contract by mutual consent. The Nerazzurri confirmed the long-awaited news in a statement Friday afternoon.

MILAN – FC Internazionale Milano can confirm that an agreement has been reached to terminate Christian Eriksen’s contract by mutual consent. The club and the entire Nerazzurri family wish Christian all the very best for his future.

Although Inter and Christian are now parting ways, the bond shall never be broken. The good times, the goals, the victories, those Scudetto celebrations with fans outside San Siro – all this will remain forever in Nerazzurri history.

Eriksen was unable to play in Serie A after suffering a cardiac arrest in the Euros and getting a heart starter device implanted. Such a device isn’t allowed in Serie A but is permitted in Holland and Denmark, so Eriksen could continue his playing career there. The 29-year-old made 60 appearances for Inter, scoring 8 goals and notching three assists. He’s most remembered for his last-minute freekick winner against Milan in the Coppa Italia, which sparked the Dane into a run of superb form to close out the season. He also scored the game-winner against Crotone in early May to clinch Inter the Scudetto.

While we’ll always wonder what could have been with Eriksen just starting to show his best before the incident, what matters is that he’s safe and healthy.

Best of luck wherever life takes you, Christian!
