Chelsea rivalled by Barcelona for Toby Alderweireld

Tottenham star Vertonghen nursing ankle injury

Barcelona are reportedly keen to sign Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld.

It means a move overseas would be the most likely exit for Alderweireld, as Tottenham have rarely sold their best players to a direct Premier League rival in recent years.

Manchester United have also been linked with the Belgium worldwide, who could be set to leave the North London outfit at the end of the season after contract talks stalled due to his demands.

Alderweireld is regarded as one of the best defenders in Europe having starred for Tottenham since joining the club from Atletico Madrid in 2015 following an impressive season on loan at Southampton.

Many Europe Airports Still Closed as Storm Rages
EasyJet intend to start departures from Edinburgh from noon, while Ryanair will open flights out of the Capital from 1pm. Heavy snowfall in the United Kingdom has caused widespread flight cancellations at United Kingdom airports.

The Belgium international's contract talks with Spurs have broken down recently.

Part of the reason for that impasse is that Alderweireld's representatives want a deal "close to Virgil van Dijk's reported £180,000-a-week wage at Liverpool". His current deal will raise concerns as a £25 million deal will be activated in 2019 and with Barcelona looming; it just makes matters worse for Tottenham. Any "serious bid" this summer may also put Alderweireld's future in speculation although Tottenham would be desperate to secure a new deal for their versatile defender.

However, Tottenham and United have now received a blow as the Mirror are citing a report from the Independent that claims Barcelona have joined the race to sign the Belgian worldwide this summer.

Interest from Barcelona may well turn Alderweireld's head, and a major bid this summer could just tempt chairman Daniel Levy into selling this summer - even if Spurs fans would be gutted.
