Toby Alderweireld

A report from Football.London claims that Manchester United and Tottenham are not in discussions over the transfer of Toby Alderweireld.

There were reports that the two teams had spoken about the transfer a month ago but it is now being claimed that there are zero talks going on regarding Alderweireld joining Jose Mourinho’s side.

The 29-year-old defender had suffered an injury-hit campaign and saw his first-team spot being taken over by new signing Davinson Sanchez.

Nevertheless, the Belgian is part of the World Cup squad alongside Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele. The report does go on to say that Alderweireld could leave the club in the summer as we have not been able to finalise a contract extension.

The Belgian wants £180,000-a-week while we are prepared to give him a contract with a wage of £130,000-a-week. The Belgian defender’s contract ends in 2019 but we can extend it for another year, though that will allow Alderweireld to leave for a fee of £25m in the summer of 2019.

A frustrating transfer saga that will continue

The other aspect of this transfer has been the rumour that we wanted Anthony Martial to be part of any deal that would see Alderweireld join Mourinho’s side.

Martial did not have a great season and is not a part of the World Cup squad for France and maybe Pochettino can turn things around for the former Monaco striker.

Since we have a quality defender in Davinson Sanchez and also have youngsters like Juan Foyth in the side, a swap deal for Martial would not be the worst outcome for us.

It does seem like Alderweireld wants to leave the side and there is no point in trying to keep a player who does not want to be here.

Bringing Martial in would give us another dimension in the attack and it could turn out to be one of the smarter deals we have pulled off in recent years.

Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium is towards completion and a new time-lapse video from last week has been shared which highlights the final stages of work being done.

The video begins with a view of the exterior where cranes are working on one section of the structure. The next part features an aerial view of the entire stadium. The video shows construction being done throughout the night to get the venue ready as quickly as possible.

A clip from the video showcases a section where numerous glass panes are yet to be installed, however, a number of cranes and workers are on the job.

The pitch was installed a week ago and an interior shot displays the grass and the artificial pitch lighting. It is great to see that most of the seats are installed and the LED hoardings across the seating area of the stadium.

Tottenham have no plans of signing Wilmar Barrios from Boca Junior, sources have told ESPN. The Colombian international had a decent World Cup with the national side and was linked with a move to Spurs, according to the report.

Reports (h/t ESPN) suggested that we had agreed on personal terms with the 25-year-old’s representatives and were preparing a bid for the midfielder.

However, sources have told ESPN that there were no discussions in the summer and he isn’t a target for Mauricio Pochettino in the winter window.

Spurs were the only club to not sign a player in the summer but the manager was open to signings in January.

The manager was quoted by ESPN as saying:

“In football you always need to think you can improve, and you need to try to improve your squad.

“We couldn’t sign [in the summer] for different circumstances, but we wanted to sign.

“Now January will come and we’re going to try to sign. I think it’s not only us — all the clubs and managers want to sign players, must refresh the squad.

“We need to try again in January or the summer if we want to move on the team and the club.”

Spurs are in a great position in the Premier League as we are just a couple of points behind the league leaders.
