Chelsea in battle with European giants for £75,000-a-week star

Toby Alderweireld is being tracked by Chelsea, Manchester United and Paris-Saint-Germain as the lack of certainty around his Tottenham Hotspur future rumbles on.

Belgium international has struggled to get back into Mauricio Pochettino’s starting eleven after returning from injury current season.

And it is understood the deal dispute is causing disharmony to his relationship with Tottenham Hotspur. He has two years left on his contract but has a £25m buy-out clause which can be activated in 2019 – and negotiations over a new contract have stalled.

As reported by The Daily Mirror, Chelsea, Manchester United and the French giants Paris Saint-Germain are preparing to make their moves. The 29-year-old Toby has been one of the top central defenders in England over the last three campaigns and would make better any of those defences.

Mauricio Pochettino appears prepared to ship him out upcoming summer as he looks to embark on a squad rebuild. Tottenham Hotspur boss wants £100m to spend on new faces before sales as he looks to reshape his team.

Express Sport understands Toby Alderweireld will be among those let go, with Spurs hopeful of gaining £40m this summer.
