CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN has revealed he is desperate to STAY at Inter Milan just six months after begging the club to sell him.
The former Tottenham playmaker, 29, only joined the new Serie A champions in late January 2020 after ending his seven-year spell in North London.
But within a year Eriksen was keen to end his spell and was actively looking for a route out of the club.
Spurs, Manchester United, Wolves and Leicester were all rumoured to be in for the Danish star earlier this season.
Eriksen admitted he struggled to deal with Inter boss Antonio Conte's rigid management style.
But now after finding his feet under the Italian and helping the club win their first Serie A crown in 11 years, Eriksen is desperate to help 'build something beautiful' at the San Siro.
On his rocky start to life at Inter, Eriksen told Gazzetta dello Sport: "I was willing to learn new things when I arrived.
"I hadn’t understood I had to follow’s Conte system all the time.
"Before, I was free to make decisions based on what I saw. It had a lot to do with intuition.
"Now, there is a general plan we have to follow… we must be ready, know where our team-mates are and where they can move.

"I had to learn all this and adapt to a different pace.
"We spoke in January, and I’ve proved what I am able to do.”
Eriksen continued: "I have no revenge to take, I just play football.
"Sometimes it goes well, sometimes it doesn’t. This is a sport that evolves quickly, almost every week.
"Six months ago I was living in a different situation, now we have a trophy and I can say I am really happy here at Inter.
"It was hard to win this title, but we did it with four games remaining.
"It’s a good starting point, now we can begin a new cycle… it will be hard to win nine titles in a row, but we’ll try to build something beautiful.
"Conte is so important for each one of us, also for the way we play. We follow him and you see that on the pitch.
"Everyone is so happy to have won with him.. but his stay is not up to me – it depends on the club and him."
