Jose Mourinho wants to re-sign former Tottenham star Christian Eriksen on loan, according to Fabrizio Romano, but the midfielder’s salary could be a stumbling block.
Eriksen left Spurs for Inter Milan a year ago but has endured a nightmare 12 months in Italy, falling out of favour under Antonio Conte at the San Siro.
The agent of Eriksen is now working to find a solution. ??
Re Tottenham: Mourinho would like to have him back at Spurs on loan, but his salary [€7,5m/season after taxes] is the main issue – no advanced talks yet with #thfc. Eriksen hopes to come back in Premier League.

He is now being linked with the exit door, and Romano – who is always reliable when it comes to transfers – says the Dane’s agent is trying to ‘find a solution’ for his client, which means it looks almost certain Eriksen will leave Inter by the end of the month.
Romano, sharing the update on Twitter, went on to say Mourinho wants Eriksen back at Spurs on a temporary deal until the end of the season, but the 28-year-old’s massive wages could prevent a deal from happening.
Apparently Eriksen is eager to return to the Premier League, so Mourinho will be hoping Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy can get a deal done before a rival potentially swoops.
