Eriksen’s journey to professional football began in the youth ranks of Danish club OB Odense. His performances caught the eye of scouts, leading to a move to the renowned Ajax youth academy in 2008. This marked the start of his international football journey. Eriksen inked a two-and-a-half-year contract with Ajax, an Amsterdam-based team, on October 17, 2008.

In 2020, Eriksen embarked on a new chapter with Inter Milan in Serie A. With his Tottenham contract expiring in six months, Eriksen signed a four-and-a-half-year contract on January 28, 2020, with Serie A club Inter Milan, which would pay him €10 million a season.

Manchester United declared on July 15, 2022, that they had reached an agreement to sign Eriksen for a three-year contract. It was confirmed on July 28, 2022, that he would don the number 14 shirt.
