Tottenham & Man United: What’s next for Toby Alderweireld?

Toby Alderweireld on transfer deadline day

It would be no surprise if Toby Alderweireld was a little nervous on Thursday.

Will Alderweireld still be a Tottenham player at 5.01pm?

For months rumours have been flying about linking Alderweireld with a move from Spurs this summer.

Last season was rough for the defender. After suffering a bad injury against Real Madrid, Alderweireld lost his place in the Tottenham XI.

At the same time, everyone knows that Alderweireld has a clause in his contract allowing him to leave for cheap next summer.

That has lead to speculation that Man United could sign the 29-year-old.

Man United deal looks unlikely

Yet, as transfer deadline day passes, it looks unlikely that Alderweireld will move to Man United.

That message is rubber-stamped across several articles in the Times on Thursday.

Where is Alderweireld’s agent today? The Times report:

Toby Alderweireld’s agent, Stijn Francis, is ready to fly over from Denmark if United bid for his client, who Tottenham Hotspur value at more than £50 million.

But even if Man United don’t complete a deal for Alderweireld, he still could leave Spurs. The Times announce:

The Tottenham Hotspur centre back Alderweireld, among others, could yet find a club abroad. He has been linked with a move to Italy if United do not bid for him. The defender’s representative is scheduled to arrive in London today to try to push for a move.

It’s worth noting that the Times fail to list any European suitors for Alderweireld.
