Over the last two seasons we have seen Toby Alderweirld develop into one of the best centre backs in the Premier League. Some say he is the best in the league. For me he has been the best CB in the Premiership for the last two seasons. I would even say the best in Europe.
His positioning, strength and general reading of the game is world class. His tackling and aerial ability make him very hard to beat aerially and on the ground. Add the fact he also has a bit of pace once he gets going and has fantastic vision. It`s not hard to see why other clubs are looking at signing him.
This season Toby`s form hasn`t hit the heights of the previous two seasons. There has been plenty of talk about him not singing a new contract and will he sign a new deal and stay long term. Is the contract talk getting to him? Or is a new system playing with new players also causing a few form issues?
Over the next few months I`m sure the club will do their best to offer him as much money as they can to keep him.
Will he sign a new deal? Or will we sell him next summer for a massive profit?
