Tottenham’s Contract Talks With Key First Team Star Is In A Limbo But Nothing To Worry About – Report

As if the disappointment of a sl0w summer transfer window wasn’t enough, talks between Tottenham and defender Toby Alderweireld over a new contract have hit an impasse, according to the Daily Mail.

The 28-year-old Belgian international is an important part of Mauricio Pochettino’s team and the Lilywhites are eager to tie him to a new contract. However, it is understood that there is no agreement in sight. There is nothing to be worried though as the lines of communication are open between both parties. There is a willingness from the player’s camp as well, to break the deadlock.

The centre-half signed from Atletico Madrid in 2014 and quickly established himself as one of the standout performers in the entire Premier League. His partnership with Jan Vertonghen made Spurs one of the meanest defences in England.

His current deal is worth in the region of £50,000-per-week. For someone of his calibre, it must be said that Alderweireld is earning a little less.

Does this make the rigid pay structure at the White Hart Lane a culprit? Both, yes and no. When the clubs around you are paying high, it is natural for the players to start looking at the current wage structure as a hindrance.

Alderweireld’s camp is holding out for parity with the club’s top earners Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris who earn around £110,000-per-week.

Manchester City Lurking Around

The Citizens are long term admirers of the defender and would offer the 28-year-old significantly more than what he’s earning here or even expecting to earn here. The player has two years remaining on his contract although there is an option for an extension of a further 12 months.

As such, there is no immediate rush to sign an extension but Alderweireld must be tied down to a new contract. The club has strengthened the defence this summer with the signing of Davinson Sanchez from Ajax. However, that’s not an excuse to let the uncertainty over Alderweireld hover around for a longer period.

What do you think? Is our wage structure partly responsible for this?
