Chelsea set to steal Toby from Tottenham

Chelsea are rumoured to be sniffing around Toby Alderweireld and are monitoring his contract situation at Tottenham, according to the Express.

Many expect the central defender to leave the club this summer.   The Belgian centre-half’s contract runs out in 2020 but has a clause that will allow him to leave for £25m in summer 2019 if no new deal is agreed.

Tottenham must make a decision on whether to cash in on the 29-year-old now, or allow him to leave for a bargain amount instead.

Mauricio Pochettino is said to have earmarked Dutch defender Matthijs de Ligt as a potential replacement for Alderweireld, and would cost around £45million.

Manchester United are also said to be keen on Toby, personally I think it would be absolute madness if Daniel Levy allowed him to join a Premier League rival, he’s the best central defender in the league.   Get him shipped off to the likes of PSG or Madrid instead, who would comfortably pay his £150,000-a-week demands.

Do you think Spurs would sell Alderweireld to Chelsea?  Have your say below

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Agreed, we should sell in this summer to a non-Premier league team. PSG would do, especially in exchange for someone like Draxler. I wouldn’t replace Toby with an 18 year old though….

  2. Toby will leave ..but he won’t be ‘stolen’, by Chelsea, or anyone else.
    Levy will set the fee at £50m, and that’s about right considering his age.
    If it’s a bidding war, then we could get even more for him.
    I’d love him to stay and be the player he was up until his long term injury,
    but with his ongoing distractions too over his contract for the past year,
    there’s no point in delaying the inevitable. We should get £100m for both
    him and Rose, and let’s spend ‘wisely’ on sourcing their replacements. No
    more lazy purchasing of PSG cast-offs please! Lucas deserves a chance next term to
    show what he can do, but Aurier, who’s unfortunately already SHOWN what he can do,
    must leave our club this summer!

  3. Sign him !!! Spend the $$$ as other top clubs do… Millions on a stadium yet can’t fork iut on players.. Levy gets more a huge bonus.. Why not players.
    Toby is best back in league.
    Get rid of Davies.Absolutely ridiculous that our top players continually leave for $$$.. When the till is full of cash
