Toby Alderweireld next club: Man Utd face transfer challenge from Arsenal, Chelsea and City

Wed, 14 February 2018, 11:43

The past few days has seen numerous reports linking Toby Alderweireld with a transfer away from Tottenham Hotspur this summer. The Belgian international is back to full fitness after a few months out with injury, but is finding it a struggle to break back into the Spurs first eleven with Davinson Sánchez seemingly ahead of him in the centre of defence. What Are The Odds looks at the Toby Alderweireld next club odds market via BetVictor bookmaker.

Tottenham left the Belgian 28-year old out of their last two fixtures against Arsenal and Juventus and this has fuelled speculation that the defender will analyse his options when the transfer window re-opens in the summer. Spurs will be reluctant to lose him to a rival but it’s their direct competition that is showing the most interest in Alderweireld.

Manchester United are the frontrunners with odds of 2/1 (3.00) and there’s plenty of transfer talk around Old Trafford that Jose Mourinho is eyeing up new defensive recruits to replace Phil Jones and Chris Smalling - so no doubt Alderweireld would fit the bill.

Manchester City have splashed out big on defenders in the past year, with John Stones and Aymeric Laporte arriving at the Etihad - with both looking like players that can fill those central defensive roles for many years to come. However, with Vincent Kompany’s ability coming into question and a need for even more squad depth could Pep Guardiola convince his board to splash out on yet another defender? City are 4/1 (5.00) to sign Toby Alderweireld.

Surprisingly Arsenal are 8/1 (9.00) along with rivals Chelsea to be the Belgian’s next club - it would be incredibly hard to see Spurs selling to their north London rivals considering the defender is very much in his prime. However, Chelsea could be the most likely of the two if it were to happen. The Blues would be the slightly less controversial choice - they need new signings this summer and would likely be willing to pay good money to get a deal done.

Regardless of the speculation, it could all be a means to get Toby Alderweireld a new contract at Spurs, and the whole situation could change should an injury occur or Vertonghen or Sanchez fall completely out of form - letting the Belgian to come back in and re-assert is place in the starting line-up.
