Source at Manchester United have indicated to the Manchester Evening News that Toby Alderweireld is their most wanted defensive purchase this summer.
United were pipped at the post in both the Premier League and the FA cup this season and are now prepared to do what it takes to make sure that there is no repetition of those failures next term.
The Evening News then goes on to list Vincent Janssen, Fernando Llorente, Moussa Sissoko and Danny Rose (who is cited interestingly as a ‘former’ Manchester United target) as players that Spurs want to cash in on – to bolster their squad.
This flies in the face of those of us that were hopeful Tottenham would retain Toby.
My gut feeling is that Toby will have decent World Cup and find himself eminently buyable.
At the risk of repeating myself, it is all well and good selling a few minor duds, however there is a fundamental rethink of how Spurs behave in the transfer windows required.
It is not just difficult seeing the surplus players above raising much in cash terms, but it would also be relatively pointless if they were then replaced by ‘so so’ alternatives.
