Manchester United are reluctant to meet Tottenham’s £75 million valuation of Toby Alderweireld, according to the Mirror.
Alderweireld has been expected to leave Spurs all summer but rumours of a potential exit have gone quiet in recent weeks.
However, yesterday reports emerged claiming Tottenham will listen to offers for the Belgian – as well as Mousa Dembele and Danny Rose – before the Premier League’s August 9th transfer deadline.
The Mirror claims Spurs aren’t budging on their £75 million valuation of Alderweireld, a fee Manchester United aren’t willing to pay.
As a result, it is believed the defender is willing to run down his contract in order to force a move to Old Trafford.
Alderweireld’s contract expires in the summer of 2019, but Tottenham have the option to trigger a one year extension. Doing so will allow the 29-year-old to leave for £25 million next summer.
Providing Alderweireld’s fitness remains steady over the next 12 months, United are likely to be willing to pay £25 million in a year’s time.
But Spurs will probably want to cash in this summer in order to make a considerable profit on the former Atletico Madrid centre-back.
