Chelsea and Man City eyeing Alderweireld


The article says that Manchester United are very much interested in a move to sign Alderweireld because of the ongoing contract situation at White Hart Lane.

With Alderweireld now stuck in a contract stand-off with Tottenham, some may be concerned that being involved in the games with Newport County and Rochdale rather than the fixtures with Arsenal and Juventus is a sign that things are not right between the defender and the club.

According to the Mirror, Manchester Evening News reports that the Red Devils are keeping tabs on Toby whose contract runs out in the summer of 2019.

Tottenham are willing to offer manager Mauricio Pochettino a lucrative new contract.

Yesterday he was left out of Tottenham's Champions League squad to face Juventus, and today he is a want-away rogue being tempted by the green, green grass of Chelsea or Manchester City.

The soon to be 29 year old will surely add quality to Manchester United's backline and has plenty of Premier League experience as well.

The £150,000-a-week wages is something Daniel Levy will be incredibly reluctant to agree on, as it will give other players the chance to demand similar terms. The Chile midfielder's deal expires in 2019.

The veteran Swedish striker has struggled to make an impact during a second spell at Manchester United and has emerged as a top target for the LA Galaxy.

But with negotiations on a new contract yet to begin, the Gunners and Blues could swoop for Shaw this summer if there isn't substantial progress toward a new deal.

Speculation about the Brazilian's future is growing, with Real Madrid tipped for a sensational move for the 26-year-old, who only move to PSG last summer.

The midfielder's contract expires at the end of the season, with Arsenal now offering him a new deal on reduced wages. The 25-year-old Argentine has just returned after being out with a hip injury for over a year.

Icardi's current deal includes a release clause of €90m, and Inter fear that Madrid or another club could pay that amount for the striker this summer.
