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.

  1. Losing such a talent will be huge loss for spurs. Even if we bring young talent or defender from other club in less price , it will take 2-3 seasons to be in level of Alderweireld. Absence of him was clearly seen when we played against Juventus in second leg when we conceded such kind of goals, which we did bcoz of weak defense.
    So it is must to search for defender who can perform in level of Alderweireld before letting him leave or dont let him leave.

  2. Toby has had a great attitude and is really not pressing to leave. If, however, PSG is willing to give him a 5 year contract at 200,000 pounds a week; it would be a deserving reward for him to let him go. He is a terrific asset but I’d be glad to see him get a long term contract for that kind of money. Levy can just accept PSG’s 100 million pounds and wish Alderweireld well.

  3. Glad we have a manager and chairman who wont break the club for players demands. He is quality but levy will get top dollar for him and rose.not bad for squad players this year

  4. If he’s going, I’d rather he goes to France or Spain than see him lining up against us , wearing a red or blue shirt

  5. We can’t compete with wages of this kind .glad to see some players are not just money orientated .go boys we have such a great squad
