Christian Eriksen had a cardiac arrest while playing at Euro 2020 last June but was able to resume his career after being fitted with an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator ICD. After being released by Inter Milan – because the ICD device is not permitted in Serie A – Eriksen accepted Brentford’s offer of a six-month contract in January and manager Thomas Frank repeatedly said the Bees wanted to keep the Ajax player.

The Denmark international in January 2020, helped Inter Milan win the Serie A title in 2020-21 under current Spurs boss Antonio Conte. Before he made his return to competitive football by joining Brentford, Conte said “the door is always open” to him training with Tottenham. The player might be Manchester United’s first signing as the move for Frankie De Jong seems not coming through.
