Some fans have taken to Twitter to react to reports that Toby Alderweireld has told Tottenham Hotspur that he wishes to leave the club this summer.
The Athletic reported earlier this afternoon that the 32-year-old is hoping to depart North London this summer once he finishes his international duty with Belgium.
Last year, Alderweireld’s father hinted that his son could move to a club closer to his native Belgium in the future (Gazet van Antwerpen).
Later today, Alderweireld will be part of the Belgium side which faces Italy in the quarter final of Euro 2020 with Spurs not prepared to stand in his way if they receive an offer which meets their valuation.
Here is how some fans reacted to the possibility of Alderweireld ending his six-year stint at the club.
I don’t blame him. Stay at a club which is about to begin a painful rebuild (and potentially not be a part of it) or move on where you can guarantee 1st team football and new experiences before retirement.

I’m sure he won’t be the only one now we named a manager that is useless

Would be the best time for him to leave, what a player and servant he’s been to the club 💪👏
