Toby Alderweireld’s future at Tottenham remains undecided, as the player and the club remain at loggerheads over a new deal.
Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen, has been one of the Premier League’s best defensive partnerships since the former joined Spurs in 2015 and former Spurs star Darren Anderton is not confident that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will not give in to Alderweireld’s demands.
“I think [Toby] Alderweireld will leave Tottenham this summer. Until his injury he was the best defender in the Premier League so his situation is definitely a problem for the club”: Anderton told bookmaker bwin.
He added:”Alderweireld will move on this summer because he wants to be paid what the best defenders earn and Tottenham won’t do that. Manchester United can afford to pay him far more money and he will massively boost their chances of winning the Premier League”
Anderton also expressed concerns that clubs will come calling for Christian Eriksen this summer. ” I wouldn’t be surprised if Barcelona wanted to sign him this summer, especially if he has a good World Cup”, he said.
However Anderton is more confident that Spurs will keep hold of Mauricio Pochettino this summer, amid speculation that the Argentine could replace Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid
“It will be very tough for Pochettino to turn down Real Madrid, but I don’t think he will make the move this summer,” he said.
