As per a report from Evening Standard, Manchester United are in pole position to secure a summer transfer for Tottenham star Toby Alderweireld.

The Belgian’s current contract runs until next summer but talks of a new deal have not yielded positive results so far. The report states that Spurs had offered Alderweireld a new deal which could have seen him earn £120,000-per-week.

For a player who is currently earning just £50,000-a-week, that should have seemed like a great pay hike but since he has rejected the same, a summer exit does seem likely. Although the likes of Chelsea and Barcelona have registered an interest in Alderweireld, it looks like we might end up seeing him in a United jersey next term.

Evening Standard reports that United are willing to pay a fee in excess of £40million to ward off attention from other suitors. However, the report also goes on to claim that the Red Devils are willing to offer him a long-term contract – and that is something Tottenham are unable to provide.

At 29 years of age, the centre-back is skilled and experienced in an unparalleled manner but over the years, Mauricio Pochettino has focused on building a team filled with fresh and young talent. Thus, to offer a long-term contract to Alderweireld now would fly right into the face of that narrative.

Given the circumstances, it seems highly unlikely for Alderweireld to continue with us next season. With the money that United are willing to pay for him, we could certainly boost our own forces.

[Video] This latest aerial video of Tottenham’s $1bn new stadium is absolutely wonderful

Tottenham new stadium

YouTuber Mr AV (h/t Football.London) has posted a new high-definition video of our club’s stunning new $1bn stadium. The footage provides us with a clear picture of how much work has been done in terms of the construction.

The video also showed the soon-to-be-opened club megastore and the Tottenham Museum. The aerial footage of the new stadium was wonderful as it also showed the overall structure of the stadium and the single-tier 17,500-seater south stand. The video also shows the area where the giant golden cockerel will sit above that stand.

It is not known as to when the stadium would be available for use but it looks like the construction is progressing at a reasonable rate.

It was indeed a disappointment when it was decided by the club hierarchy that we would be playing our home games at Wembley this season but that would all change when the stadium is unveiled officially. The construction has taken quite a bit of time and it will be an exciting phase when the work is completed.

The new stadium would surely serve as a boost to the entire club and it would wipe out any negativity surrounding Tottenham. The club too have been keeping us updated on the progress regarding the stadium and we’ll have to wait to see what the club say next regarding the completion of the stadium work.

Tottenham’s past 8 meetings with West Ham has seen 28 goals being scored, at an average of 3.5 per game, hence, it is logical that the club has shared a video of some great goals from the past. The game on Saturday presents us with a chance to keep the pressure on the teams above us and we shouldn’t drop points.

The video was a trip down the memory lane and the fans had a say on it. The Tottenham faithful reacted to the video on Twitter and a lot of them had some nice things to say.

Winks and Dier in midfield? – Predicted 4-2-3-1 Tottenham line-up to face West Ham

Published

Harry Winks

Predicted Tottenham line-up to face West Ham in the Premier League

Tottenham face a tough task as they return from the international break. Spurs play West Ham at the London Stadium in a derby and have a number of injury concerns.

Jan Vertonghen has a hamstring injury while the likes of Dele Alli and Danny Rose are out injured too. Spurs have done well in the Premier League despite a couple of defeats. We are just two points behind the league leaders and a win on Saturday would keep the pressure at the top of the table.

Mauricio Pochettino has to be smart with his team selection given our injury concerns.

Probable Tottenham XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Hugo Lloris (GK)

The France international should play this derby. Lloris hasn’t been at his best this season but a run of games should help him.

Kieran Trippier (RB)

The English defender is another player who seems to be suffering from a long World Cup, however, he should remain in the starting XI.

Toby Alderweireld Tottenham

Toby Alderweireld

Davinson Sanchez (CB)

Sanchez should start for us given Vertonghen’s hamstring injury and the Colombian has looked in decent touch this season.

Toby Alderweireld (CB)

The Belgian has to have a good game as he would be up against the in-form Marko Arnautovic.

Ben Davies (LB)

The Welsh left-back should start for us with Danny Rose out injured.

Harry Winks (CM)

Winks did play recently for England and should get a look into the team as we still have a few players out.

Eric Dier of Tottenham

Eric Dier

Eric Dier (CM)

Dier had a great showing against Spain but hasn’t done all that well when playing for Spurs this season. The Englishman needs a good game and let’s hope it’s on Saturday.

Son Heung-min (LAM)

The South Korean is an automatic selection when fit as he is one of the best players in the Premier League.

Lucas Moura (CAM)

Moura started the season well but has petered down a bit in recent weeks. Nevertheless, the Brazilian should start for the Lilywhites at the London Stadium.

Erik Lamela (RAM)

The Argentine has been excellent for Spurs this season and could be one of the keys to all three points on Saturday.

Kane was in brilliant form for England and should start against the Hammers.
