Three reasons Man United fans should be excited following Alderweireld comments
Cheap and very cheerful
If Tottenham refuses to give Alderweireld a new deal or take up the option to activate a one-year extension clause, Manchester United could pocket a top player at a discount price.
Should no deal be reached and Daniel Levy happily let the 29-year-old walk out the club’s door, United must be ready to pounce and hand the player a deal that will take him through the final good years of his career.
Even if Spurs were to activate his extension clause, United can still bag a key addition for less than the player’s value as the agreement also holds a £25million buy-out that comes into effect during the final two-weeks of next summer’s transfer window.
