Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Tobey Alderweireld is on the verge of moving out the club after reports have emerged that the London outfit have pulled the plug on a new deal for the Belgian International.
Spurs are unwilling to meet Alderweireld’s new wage demands and the centre-back could very well join a new club during the summer transfer window.
Since this news broke out, Manchester United have been termed the favourites to land Alderweireld and rumours have it that Jose Mourinho has already informed his club’s hierarchy to start preparing for a bid.
Spurs are a club who are known to have very strict wage rules and it will not be a big surprise if they release Alderweireld and bring in a fresh new talent at the end of the season.
And as per the latest rumours, the Lilywhites might already have found a replacement to the Belgian International.
Tottenham are interested in signing promising Ajax defender, Matthijs de Ligt if Aldwereireld decides to join Manchester United.
Matthijs is a product of the famed Ajax academy and made his senior team debut back in 2016. Since then the 18-year-old has made 48 appearances for Ajax over two seasons – scoring 5 goals.
Spurs though are not the only team who are interested in bringing the Netherlands international to England as both Arsenal and Manchester City have eyes on the centre-back.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has a couple of ageing defenders amongst his ranks and the Spaniard has openly claimed that he will be looking to bring in fresh recruits over the course of the next few transfer windows.
Arsenal too are looking to make a major overhaul of their squad and Arsene Wenger is said to be interested in Matthijs. But this interest from the Gunners will totally depend on the fact as to who becomes the new manager for the London outfit at the end of the season.
During the few seasons, Mauricio Pochettino has developed this habit of making bargain signings, so it will not be a huge surprise if the Lilywhites snap up Matthijs de Ligt and turn him into a world beater.
