Tottenham Agree To Sell Toby Alderweireld To United
It appears Toby Alderweireld will play at Old Trafford next season, following reports that the red devils have been dealt a major boost in their pursuit of his signature.
According to Yahoo Sports, Tottenham are ‘keen to sell’ the Belgium international this summer and will stop playing hardball over him.
Toby has been heavily linked with a move away from Tottenham ahead of the 2018/19 season, and he has been in the news consistently due to his links with Jose Mourinho’s side.
The Portuguese boss has been seeking for a new centre-back, with the duo of Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind expected to depart the Theater of Dreams before the start of the upcoming campaign.
Even the likes of Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Eric Bailly were not very much consistent last term, forcing Jose to seek to sign a new defender.
Apart from Alderweireld, the red devils have been linked with the likes of Raphael Varane (Real Madrid) and Barcelona’s Samuel Umtiti.
However, Toby was high up on United’s shortlist, and he could actually see himself playing at Old Trafford next term.
The talented defender is rated £70M and won’t obviously come cheap.
Spurs’ board are reportedly demanding a fee that is close to what Liverpool paid Southampton to sign Virgil Van Dijk in January.
