According to reports Seria A club, AS Roma have made an £18 million bid for Spurs’ Belgian centre back, Toby Alderweireld (Calciomercato).
However, it is widely known that Spurs have a £25 million buy-out clause, and they are not willing to let him go for any less (Calciomercato).
Alderweirdeld joined Tottenham in 2015 for £11.5 million in what now looks like the bargain of the century from Atletico Madrid (The Telegraph).
Since joining from Atletico Madrid, Alderweireld has been a regular performer at the back for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
Completing a total of 159 appearances for the Lilly Whites from North London, and scoring 6 goals and providing 4 assists (whoscored).
With the rumoured buy-out clause only in effect up until the 25th of July, Roma could risk paying a higher fee if they do not act fast.
However, the Tottenham Hotspur fanbase would love a change of circumstances, and for Toby Alderweireld to sign a new contract and see out the remainder of his career with Spurs.
Spurs Web Opinion:
With Toby Alderweireld being 30 years-of-age, it is hard to see any club looking to offer him anything higher than what we could.
With the new stadium and potentially more stellar signings coming to Spurs, why wouldn’t Alderweireld want to settle down in North London and retire with Jan Vertognhen?
