Tottenham Hotspur may be forced to sell defender Toby Alderweireld in the summer, according to the Daily Mail.

The story claims that the Belgian has a clause in his contract which requires Spurs to accept any bids over £26million that are tabled in the final two weeks of this upcoming summer’s transfer window.

It is reported that Premier League rivals Manchester United are leading the race to sign the 30-year-old, but European giants Barcelona and Juventus are also admirers of the player.

After signing a deal extension in December, the ex-Southampton loan star is contracted in North London until the summer of 2020, but the Whites are said to be ‘resigned’ to the fact that the former Ajax man’s time in the capital could be drawing to a premature conclusion.

Alderweireld is a key player for both club and country.

Since signing from Atletico Madrid in 2015, Alderweireld has gone on to justify every penny of the £11.5million that Spurs paid to secure his services – making over 100 Premier League appearances and scoring five goals, including one in the North London Derby in March 2016.

The 6ft 2in centre-back has proven to be a vital member for both club and country and played the full 90 minutes in six out of Belgium’s seven games at the World Cup, with his international tally now standing at an impressive 84 appearances.
