Tottenham Hotspur fans react on Twitter to Toby Alderweireld reports

Tottenham Hotspur's Toby Alderweireld

Tottenham are said to be pessimistic over Toby Alderweireld's future.

Tottenham Hotspur are 'resigned' to losing Toby Alderweireld to Manchester United, report The Mirror.

United are able to activate a clause in his contract reportedly just £26 million.

 

The Red Devils are long term suitors of Alderweireld and Tottenham can have no say over where he goes.

Their only chance is to agree the Belgian to an extension, but at this point, Alderweireld is so close to an exit that it is more unlikely than ever.

The centre-back is one of Tottenham's mid-ranking earners, and even if he took a similar place in Manchester United's wage structure, he would still likely earn more than Spurs' highest paid player.

United and Tottenham are separated by just three points in the Premier League table.

For Tottenham it would be a blow to lose Alderweireld, highlighted by the fact they have struggled without him.

Their decision to rest him last weekend backfired badly as they lost to Southampton.

Spurs fans are unhappy with the developments...
