Paris Saint-Germain have entered the race to sign Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld, according to the Telegraph.

Alderweireld’s Spurs future is in doubt following a breakdown in contract talks, leading to reported interest from a number of big clubs across Europe.

Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid are all believed to hold an interest in the Belgian, and the Telegraph believes PSG are now ready rival those clubs.

Alderweirld’s current Tottenham contract expires in the summer of 2019, but there is an option to extend it to 2020.

However, that would trigger a complicated release clause that could see Alderweireld leave if Spurs receive bids of £25 million.

As a result, the Telegraph claims Tottenham may have to consider offers in the region of £40 million this summer.

That’s not an incredible amount of money in the current climate, particularly for a club like PSG who splashed out £197 million on Neymar last summer.

There is still a chance Alderweireld will commit his future to Spurs by signing a new contract, but the club is apparently unwilling to meet his large salary demands.

The 29-year-old has struggled with injuries this season, but most Tottenham fans would like to see him stay regardless of his apparent lack of commitment.

  1. I think that Toby would be safer off at Spurs that’s idf we are ready to pay him in the region of 120 thousand in wages rather than start all over at a new club. At Spurs he knows what he has in hand and is one of the first eleven, but maybee going to other clubs he will be an intermediate player.
    I do hope that he will stay because our defence is not the same without him with all respect to Jan and Sanchez.
    All the best for the cup.
