Ahhhhhhhgh Toby meltdown everybody …run for your lives!
In recent weeks, Poch said: “There’s nothing to relate [the two players]. Today, I was talking for one hour with Toby. He is so happy here.”
Those words are accurate and true.
Stijn Francis (an advisor of Toby Alderweireld) has been quoted as saying: “When you look at Toby’s statistics, they are impressive. Either he deserves an appropriate contract, or else he should be given a transfer.
“Seven or eight big European clubs are interested in signing him. There are not many central defenders around who can play like he can. But these clubs will have to negotiate with Tottenham’s chairman, Daniel Levy.”
Those words are those of a bloke who had in his own mind, already spent his commission and had the mother of all Christmases.
As per numerous updates courtesy of Gladys, there is zero rush on all this. There’s 3 years remaining on the boy’s contract with an discretionary option of another year as things sit today.
THFC will offer Toby a better deal.
Stijn Francis can crush all the grapes and jump off all the doll’s houses he can clamber atop of, but Levy & Poch will make the offer when it suits them, and not some advisor.
