The planned visit by a delegation from Inter to Christian Eriksen in Copenhagen has been cancelled, with the player currently prioritizing personal time spent with his family.
Today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport report that the Nerazzurri management have decided against the trip to Denmark, and will wait for the player to come back to Milan to assess his condition and perform further tests.
The 29-year-old is set to be discharged from hospital today, with his condition having fully stabilized and tests having brought some insight to the cause of his heart attack on Saturday and led to the player being fitted with a heart implant.
It had been the plan for a Nerazzurri delegation, including CEO Beppe Marotta, to visit the player now that he is out of hospital, but the club are said to have decided against it.
However, the club’s medical staff are in constant contact with the medical team to whom the Dane is currently entrusted.
After a period of rest further tests will be performed to outline the future course of action for the player’s treatment, and the player will travel to Milan so that Inter’s team can assess the player as well.
The question of whether the player can return to action for the Nerazzurri, or at all, in the future remains very much up in the air.
The club will have to wait on questions surrounding whether the ICD (Implantable Cardioverter Defibrulator) he has had implanted is temporary permanent before any answer can come.
Should the midfielder be unable to appear again in Inter colours there will be questions of collecting insurance, and of the possibility of selling the player.
However, there appear to be weeks to come before a conclusive answer to these questions, when further assessments reveal more.
