Eriksen has often struggled at Italy, and was linked with a move away in the summer as Inter Milan tried to sell him.
Bayern Munich refused to negotiate with Inter for Jerome Boateng
Bayern Munich were offered the chance to sign Eriksen, but the Bavarians refused to let go of Jerome Boateng.
Eriksen joined Inter Milan from Tottenham Hotspur in the winter transfer window this year for £17 million. However, the Denmark international has failed to impress manager Antonio Conte in his 28 appearances for the club.
The 28-year-old was linked with a return to Tottenham Hotspur in the summer, with Inter Milan keen to let go of him.
Now it has been reported that Bayern Munich had the chance to sign the attacking midfielder, in exchange for veteran centre-back Jerome Boateng. Boateng, who joined Bayern Munich from Manchester City in 2011, has been a consistent presence in Bayern's defence.
Since 2011, the Germany international has made more than 300 appearances in al competitions for Bayern Munich, playing a key role as they won the treble last season under manager Hansi Flick.
Bayern Munich let go of key midfielders Thiago Alcantara and Philippe Coutinho this summer, with Thiago joining Liverpool and Coutinho returning to Barcelona after a season-long loan in Germany. Young midfielder Michael Cuisance too has left the club, having joined Marseille on loan.
Bayern Munich were busy during the end of the transfer window, having bought winger Leroy Sane and centre-back Tanguy Kouassi early on. Striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, right-back Bouna Sarr, winger Douglas Costa, and midfielder Marc Roca also joined the club during the last week of the transfer window.
The Bavarians are seen as one of the best teams in world football right now, having successfully won the treble last season. They are among the favourites for all three trophies this season as well.
Inter Milan, on the other hand, let go of veteran centre-back Diego Godin to Cagliari. A move for Boateng would have added experience to their backline.
