The Tottenham Hotspur fans here in the Transfer Tavern will be sure to pose the question to manager Mauricio Pochettino, who are you going to replace Toby Alderwerield with, should he leave?
Spurs are in a little bit of a pickle when it comes to extending Alderwerield’s contract if they were to take the one year option on the deal that expires in 2019, in turn, they activate the £25m buy-out release clause.
To pick up the former Atletico Madrid defender for this amount would be a snip, especially in today’s market according to our punters in the bar. The Belgian is looking to more than double his current £50k a week deal to hit the capped ceiling at Spurs of £110k.
If this were to happen, Pochettino would surely be looking to Daniel Levy and the board to bring in some much-needed reinforcements to Wembley Stadium.
