Tottenham Contract Rebel Could Leave For €35m – Inter Milan Join The Race

Toby Alderweireld is a wanted man, thanks to the rather ridiculous standoff we have, related to his contract situation. We all know that the 28-year-old wants to remain at Tottenham but we are not willing to pay over-the-top wages, which Alderweireld can get at many other clubs.

It would come as no surprise that Barcelona have been linked with a move for the Belgian but another of Europe’s top clubs are interested in his services. Sports Mediaset via Fichajes claims that Serie A’s Inter Milan want to sign him up and that they have added him to their transfer list.

One of the surprise packages from this Serie A season, Inter are in desperate need of another central defender and the report claims that Toby could leave us for close to €35m, which would be a bargain in this day and age of football.

Alderweireld has created a great defensive partnership with Belgian teammate Jan Vertonghen and losing him would be a great folly in our dealings with players. The former Atletico Madrid man has been a great signing for us and we would not be able to find such a quality replacement should we lose him to any other side.

The report goes on to suggest that Inter want to sign Alderweireld in the winter window as the contract talks have hit a standstill and that could be a major problem for us, even after the signing of Davinson Sanchez from Ajax.

Alderweireld has already played 11 games this season and would have looked to continue putting up great performances at the back. We have been one of the best defences in the Premier League this campaign and had a stellar showing in the last one too. So not keeping hold of the Belgian would harm us in the short and long-run.

Atletico Madrid, his former club, are also interested in the player and could join in the bidding war when their transfer embargo is lifted in the winter window. They already have signed Diego Costa and could raid another London club, this time for their defence.

Alderweireld earns around £50,000-a-week right now and not negotiating a new deal and letting him leave would just be a poor move. But given the reported price of €35m from the Italian outlet, it seems unlikely that Daniel Levy will let the Belgian go that cheap.

Things will get interesting in the January window and we hope that a deal will be finalised to keep Alderweireld at Tottenham for a long time.
