£75,000-a-week star breaks silence on Tottenham transfer talk

Toby Alderweireld has stated that he has a preference of what he would like to do but his future remains in the hands of the club.

The 29-year-old has just over a year left on his current deal at the club, which also features a one-year extension option, but he is yet to reach an agreement with Tottenham over a new contract.

Reports have linked the former Atletico Madrid star with a move to Manchester United this summer, but the player had previously said little to address the speculation over his future.

A clause in the Belgium international’s contract states that, if the club triggers the year-long extension until 2020, Alderweireld can be allowed to leave for a fee of £25m up to 14 days before the end of the 2019 summer transfer window.

For now though, the defender is leaving the decision up to the club.

“I have another two years contract. Tottenham decides about my future.” said the defender

“Of course I have my own idea. But that is not the case now.

“The past season was tough, but I’m glad that I could play the last four matches. That means that I am ready for the World Cup.”
