Tottenham Hotspur v Real Madrid - UEFA Champions League

Alderweireld open to Spurs stay

News Transfer

Toby Alderweireld has admitted that staying at Tottenham for next season is a possibility despite being linked with a move to Manchester United

Since sustaining a hamstring injury against Real Madrid back in November in the Champions League, Alderweireld has struggled to regain his place in the starting line-up at Spurs and failed to agree on terms for a new contract at the club.

The Belgium international is now into the final 12 months of his current deal at Spurs, although the club does still have the option of renewing it for another year.

United had hoped to sign Alderweireld for around £50m, but Spurs are refusing to consider offers below £70m at the moment.

“Yeah, why not?” said Alderweireld, according to Sky Sports.

“I have two years left on my contract. I don’t know what is going to happen.”

The Belgian defender made just 14 appearances in the Premier League last season, but was included in Roberto Martinez’s Belgium squad for the World Cup.
