Tottenham Hotspur will be forced to let Toby Alderweireld leave the club for just £26m this summer.

That’s according to The Mirror, who write that a clause in Alderweireld’s contract allows the move in the last two weeks of the upcoming window.

The 30-year-old joined the club from Atletico Madrid in 2015 for a deal believed to be worth £11.5m, signing a five-year contract at the time.

He has since gone on to make 109 Premier League appearances for the North London outfit, with 27 of those coming this campaign.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United, who will look to offload centre-back Eric Bailly, are keen to sign the Belgian international, as well as European giants Juventus and Barcelona.

Spurs will have no option to accept any bid matching the stipulated valuation or will lose the experienced defender on a free 12 months later.

Alderweireld has so far refused to sign a new deal to continue to work under Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino and seems to be seeking a new venture in his career.
