Barcelona ready to battle Manchester United for Spurs ace


Barcelona are rumoured to have joined Manchester United in the race to sign Toby Alderweireld in the January transfer window, according to the Daily Mirror.

The central defender has left than a year to run on his current contract at Tottenham Hotspur.  However, the club does have the right to exercise an agreement in the contract that allows them to extend the deal by twelve months.

If the contract is extended, it will trigger a transfer release clause of just £25million if any bids are received for the Belgian in the final two weeks of next summer’s transfer window.

Barcelona have also been linked with another Tottenham transfer target, Ajax’s Matthijis de Ligt.

Manchester United were heavily rumoured to be keen on signing Alderweireld during the summer but a move never materialised.
