Calhanoglu replaces Christian Eriksen at Inter Milan

Hakan Calhanoglu has returned to Milan where he will undergo a medical with Inter Milan, and the Turkish playmaker has agreed to sign a three-year contract worth 5 million euros a year and will join the Nerazzurri as a free player.

According to Futbol Italia, the agreement comes with add-ons amounting to around €1m per season.

Calhanoglu joined Milan in 2017 and the Rossoneri offered the 27-year-old a new contract worth €4 million a year to extend his stay at the club.

But the Turkey international rejected Milan's offer and opted to join neighbors Inter instead.

He is expected to replace Christian Eriksen, whose Serie A career looks in doubt after he underwent a defibrillator implant.

Calhanoglu has arrived at Milan's Linate Airport and will undergo medical checks with Inter on Tuesday morning.

The continuation of Christian Eriksen, midfielder Denmark, with his team Inter Milan has become in doubt, after he underwent surgery to implant a pacemaker, after falling and suffering a sudden fainting on the field against Finland in the first match of the two teams in Euro 2020.

Sky Sports Italia confirmed that the 29-year-old midfielder is still recovering in his country before he begins to think about returning to the stadiums, as he will spend a few weeks at his residence in Copenhagen and will follow his country's last match in Euro 2020 against Russia on Monday.

The network added that it is clear that Inter Milan is following the whole story carefully, and is in daily contact with the player, and Eriksen will return to Milan next month, but his future in the entire Italian League and Inter specifically is doubtful, because of the pacemaker.

The network continued, "If this device is permanently left in Eriksen's body, he will not be able to play in the Italian league, since this device is prohibited by the protocol of the Committee for the Regulation of Cardiology in sports competitions, and it is not allowed to practice sports that require friction in the presence of this device." .
