Report claims Spurs star will leave within 48 hours

According to a report in the Daily Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld could be a Manchester United player within 48 hours.

Talks between both clubs have been taking place for a while but apparently, a breakthrough has been made on a transfer fee.  Previously, Tottenham were refusing to budge from their £75million valuation of the Belgian defender, with a deal now said to be agreed at around the £60million mark.

Alderweireld has only 11 months to run, but the club has the option to trigger a one-year extension, which would, however, activate a clause allowing him to leave for £25m in the final two weeks of next summer’s transfer window.   He has apparently already rejected an improved £130,000-a-week offer.

Tottenham are mindful of this and rather than risk losing one of their most valuable assets for a cut-price and are now apparently willing to meet United’s offer.

Frustratingly, there is no mention of a deal for Anthony Martial within the piece.  If Alderweireld leaves and we are still yet to bring in any new signings, Tottenham fans have an absolute right to be p*ssed off with Daniel Levy.  

A shiny new stadium is great, but we want a side who can compete for trophies.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Good riddance but Levy I believe will ask MP to use Dier as a replacement for Alderweireld in defence and bring in a top attacking box to box tough midfielder , I do hope Levy tells UTD to get on with it super quick to allow MP to find his preferred midfielder not Levys preferred midfielder in time for the kick off , now get shot of Rose , Dembele , Aurier , Mouca , Florente , Sissoko , N`Gou not spelt right , and the rest of the deadwood who just sit on the bench .
