Toby Alderweireld has spoken out on his future at the club in a recent interview with a Belgian newspaper.

When asked by De Zondag about whether he will be leaving the club this summer, the 29-year-old replied:

“I have another two years’ contract. Tottenham will decide my future. Of course, I have my own idea.”

Fans on Twitter reacted to Toby’s words with some pleading for him to stay, while others are happy to see him go:

Verdict:

Toby has not agreed to a new contract to stay with us, and with the player available for just £25m next summer, it seems more likely than not that he’ll leave before the start of next season.

However, so far, it seems there has been no approach for our no.4 from any club. The Mirror have consistently reported that Manchester United are poised to make a substantial bid for the defender, but no offer has materialised

It’s likely that this will drag on until after the World Cup. No player wants to be distracted by transfer talk during the tournament, and with Belgium’s first group game in just 13 days time, it unlikely things will be resolved before then.

  • Trouble is, from what I have seen it isn’t JUST the money, he, I believe, wanted/wants an unrealistic contract extension of something in the region of FIVE YEARS on top of his pay rise, and at his age with the probability of him picking up more injuries and being out for long periods of the game DUE to him getting older, that is not feasible.
    I think if it were JUST a case of more dosh they would have come to an agreement a long time ago and all would be cushty.
