​​Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that midfielder Christain Eriksen could still leave the club before the European transfer window closes, with the Danish international linked with a move to one of the Madrid clubs.

Eriksen was expected to move in the summer transfer window, with ​Manchester United one of the clubs that were interested along with ​Real Madrid and ​Atletico Madrid. However, Eriksen ​reportedly snubbed United and is hoping to move to Madrid instead.

Although no moves seem to be forthcoming for the player, Pochettino has refused to rule out the possibility that he could lose his star midfielder before transfer deadline day on September 2.

“You know more than me, things can still happen,” Pochettino said, according to ​Goal

“It is not in my hands if something happens or not. Still we need to wait until September 2 and hope there are not too many changes or not too many problems for us.

“We need to assess the circumstances. We will see what happens between now and September 2. Like we can change our minds, a player can change his, so until September 2 it is difficult to tell you if this will be the bravest group of players. 

"The team is still not settled how I expected it to be. We are still working in trying to make sure it is finished come September 2. That will be the moment to have a big conversation with the whole squad and settle the principle,” he concluded.

It remains to be seen if Christian Eriksen does get his ​desired move or if he will need to buckle down at Tottenham for one more season and try and help them win a trophy or two.
