Toby Alderweireld’s future at Tottenham Hotspur has been a talking point for some time.
The defender is yet to follow the lead of a number of his teammate’s and sign a new contract at the North London outfit.
There have been many twists and turns in the media with regards to the Belgian’s future.
A recent exclusive from The Times claims that Tottenham are willing to sell the centre-back after reaching an impasse in transfer negotiations.
The publication states that both parties have been in talks over a deal worth around £110,000 per week, but Alderweireld’s camp are pushing for a salary close to £150,000 a week.
Fans of the Football FanCast Accy Show will know that we tend to recommend a Premier League outright win treble each week. Those fans might also be aware that this coupon has paid out on many occasions—including the last PL game week!
Take a look at our latest top flight treble—as well as our very tempting EFL fourfold—in the latest edition of the show!
According to The Times, manager Mauricio Pochettino has given a thumbs up to the club to sell the defender as the hierarchy feel that this summer will be the best time to get the highest price.
The report also claims that the club are worried players could demand more lucrative salaries if they give Alderweireld what he wants.
As expected, this latest story has got the fans talking.
The Alderweireld issue is pretty simple. If he wants more than our current highest earner (Kane) then he can leave. Sold to the highest bidder in the summer.

This whole Toby Alderweireld thing to me seems odd… Spurs have always said that if they want to keep a player they will keep the player, I imagine this is being blown out of proportion again by the media.. 👀#THFC #COYS

Just for once i would like Poch to come out in his pre match interview and rather than say 'when asked about toby' ''i dont speak about rumours'' actually say what the situation is…… stop keeping us in the dark !!!#THFC #COYS #alderweireld

Think of all the players the press have linked with Spurs. Think of all the times they've tried to sell Kane/Alli/Eriksen. All the times Pochettino was supposedly going. Yet you'll believe this Toby Alderweireld tripe? WHY? Wake up man! Believe it IF it happens. #COYS #THFC

Awful news about Alderweireld if true, but he'll be worth a huge amount this summer which we can reinvest. Already seen a lot of promise in Juan Foyth and Davinson Sanchez has had an incredible first season all things considered. #COYS #THFC

If the Alderweireld story is true and we’re really not willing to pay 150k a week, we will never get anywhere #COYS

Woke up to see Toby Alderweireld trending on Twitter. At least he's not injured or something more severe. Thank goodness. But, @SpursOfficial MUST be careful not to lose this rock of a defender to another club. @AlderweireldTob you are a valued Spurs player.#COYS #THFC https://t.co/pOqCYOUGA0
