Paris Saint-Germain are “willing to match” Toby Alderweireld’s wage demands ahead of a possible summer move for the Tottenham defender, according to the Mail.
Alderweireld’s Spurs future has been a source of speculation for weeks now after talks over a new contract collapsed earlier this year.
The Belgian was completely left out of the Tottenham squad that travelled to Chelsea on Sunday despite playing 90 minutes for his country just days before.
The Mail’s report claims Alderweireld wants a new five-year deal worth £200,000-a-week, which would make him by far the club’s highest paid player – but Spurs are unwilling to offer him those terms.
As a result, PSG have apparently emerged as the frontrunners to sign Alderweireld as they are open to paying him what he wants.
The report also suggests Mauricio Pochettino has already told the 29-year-old he can leave at the end of the season, and a transfer will be dealt with by chairman Daniel Levy.
Davinson Sanchez’s excellent display at Chelsea proved Tottenham can be solid defensively without Alderweireld, but his exit would still be seen as a blow by many Spurs fans.
