Christian Eriksen has reportedly expressed a wish to eventually return to playing football, and Inter are hopeful that the Dane can eventually make further appearances in Nerrazzurri colours, but any plans will necessarily be subject to the results of medical tests on the midfielder.

Today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper report that the Dane is in contact with Inter teammates on WhatsApp and has reassured them of his condition and said that he hopes for a return to football.

The Nerazzurri also hope that the 29-year-old can come back from his health emergency, as he is an important player in the club’s sporting project.

However, all parties are fully aware that any plans must wait until clarification on his situation is provided by medical tests.

Dr. Piero Volpi of Inter’s medical staff has exchanged emails with Denmark’s Dr. Morten Boesen, and expects the results of the exams in the coming days.

The key matter will be to establish the cause of the midfielder’s apparent cardiac arrest during Denmark’s opener against Finland on Saturday.

In the event that a problem is identified which would make a repeat of the incident probable, any return to football for the Dane could seriously be in doubt.

Inter will receive economic relief in the form of insurance payments should Eriksen be unable to return next season or at all, but his absence from the team on a sporting level is something which the club cannot be compensated for.
