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.
“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.
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.
