Will Toby Alderweireld be leaving Tottenham Hotspur this summer?
The Belgium international has a contract in London until June 2020.
The problem, however, is that the centre-back’s release clause will drop to £25m this summer, which is bound to be activated – potentially by Manchester United.
Alderweireld might now be 30 years of age, but he is one of the finest defenders in European football, let alone the Premier League.
The fact that Alderweireld – one short of 50 appearances for his club this season – has not penned fresh terms up until this point suggests that he will be leaving in this summer’s transfer window.
The Tottenham fans, however, have made another plea for the 90-cap ace to think about committing his future to Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Indeed, in response to a post from Alderweireld following Sunday’s Premier League clash with Everton, the club’s supporters were out in their numbers to call on the former Atletico Madrid ace to remain at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
