Toby Alderweireld has not ruled out staying at the club beyond the summer despite the defender being heavily linked with a move to Manchester United.

The 29-year-old has a year left on his contract, with the club having the option to extend for a further year. When asked about staying with us, our no.4 said:

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

Fans on Twitter reacted to the comments:

Verdict:

It’s not the most convincing statement is it? There is no talk of contract discussions being revived with the Belgian international, and with the player available for £25m next year, a departure is still more likely than not.

Toby is probably hedging his bets just in case a move doesn’t materialise this summer. The Manchester Evening News reported earlier this week that we are demanding £70m from United for the centre-back.

The asking price is said to be £20m higher than the Manchester club are willing to pay, leading them to assess other targets.

  • Why do you suckers believe all this rubbish ?
    The only people linking Toby with manu is the rubbish so called journos. They know nothing, so make it up, and then you all call out Toby and others. Call yourselves fans ? You are all morons.

  • United are playing hardball over the transfer, just like Levy is criticised for, just like most football clubs would. From what I’ve read their original offer was short on actual cash and padded with add ons that were unlikely to ever be triggered. Economists talk about a “perfect market” as one with a lot of buyers and sellers, football is the opposite. There are very few clubs that could pay Toby the money he wants or that he would actually want to sign for. Danny Rose is already finding out that if a big club loses interest then there’s usually nowhere else to go. So maybe its no wonder Toby is getting a little nervous.

  • I agree with Tonto 911. It’s a load of bollocks, same o same o, every season. Just wait & see, chill ffs, what will be will be. Stressing & moaning etc, is a waste of time & energy!

  • Let’s put all this talks out Toby into perspective.
    Firstly, he has been our top defender for the past few years.
    Secondly, if Levy had been paying our stars more money in the first place all our squad would not be involved
    In any transfer talk.
    The good news is Levy is at long last doing something about redressing the wage problem.
    Let’s hope we keep all our stars and just buy a few to improve our squad.

  • Don’t forget lads n lassies its the summer fest of frenzied feeding by the Spurs hating media, if you read/listen they all “cherry pick” everything our players say, it is, as it is every summer a load of bollox. COYS

  • What’s all the fuss about? Either he stay or he goes and if he does, its for the right amount of cash. How long have the media been banging on and on about Alderweireld’s reluctance to sign a new contract. To my knowledge, a year. First we hear that he’s only on £50k per week (poor lad), all of a sudden it was £80k per week and more recently, Spurs supposedly offering him £120k per week which was rejected because he wants £180k per week. All this tells me is that it’s a complete load of bullshit made up by the pricks masquerading as journalists ITK.

  • Hope he stays, he’s top notch and clearly and obviously has an understanding with Super Jan. We can’t 1 minute say he’s worth £75m and the next pay him peanuts. Problem is what’s Super Jan and Davy on?! If his wages do price him out – get as much as we can and sign someone else. That said he’s 29 and coming off a major injury so even if he was to be willing to sign – could we afford to turn down any offer north of £50m especially the £70-75m we supposedly rate him at?! The club comes first and now the stadium comes 2nd so that is a lot of money to turn down for a player who may well be unhappy, 1 yard off given major injury and wanting massive wages pushing our structure over and causing trouble for other CB’s and the dressing room as a whole.

  • I know MP has just signed a new contract, but contracts are meaningless. He will start next season at Madrid. Toby is on his way to United (with Rose), and Kane, Dele, and Christian will start their next season at Arsenal. All those media experts and ITK pundits can’t be wrong. But it’s not all bad news as all of our on-loan players will be returning to the Lane. Anyone else feel like a drink?!

  • Geofspurs – So Pochettino will start next season at Madrid ? Boy that means Lopetegui will be manager for less than two months. You really are talking rubbish.

  • Lets spare a thought for Spain.. 2 days before world cup sack their manager because he is new manager R Madrid. Spain International federation were not aware..who is the unknown manager?? J Lopetegui LOL… Come on England we have a good chance this tournament…
