Christian Eriksen's future at Tottenham remains uncertain, amid ties with Real Madrid and Manchester United during the summer.

The Danish international has been strongly tied to a move away from Tottenham this summer, after admitting that it could be time for a new challenge, questioning its future north of London.

Eriksen, 27, said he hoped a resolution could be found this summer, with Real Madrid named among the potential suitors for the former Ajax man.

Speaking at the Danish publication, Ekstra Bladet, he said: "I feel like a place in my career where I might want to try something new.

"I have the wildest and deepest respect for all that has happened in Tottenham – I will not be negative. But I also said that I would like to try something new.

"I hope there will be a resolution during the summer. That's the plan."

But with less than a month to go in the transfer window, there was still no movement regarding his future, with the signing of Real Madrid Eden Hazard by Chelsea and the future of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba still unclear.

Pogba was connected to Real Madrid after Marca declared that Zinedine Zidane wanted to sign the French, and not Eriksen, with the Danish connected with United as a potential substitute for the winner of the World Cup, if he were to leave.

However, there has not yet been any movement on that situation, which means that the future of Pogba and Eriksen will remain in the air with just under four weeks until the new Premier League season.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino admits that he hopes Eriksen will stay at Tottenham next season.
