Toby Alderweireld has demanded that Spurs boss Daniel Levy makes a decision over his contract demands before this summer’s World Cup.
The 29 year old has been selected for Belgian’s provisional squad which curiously enough is in the same group as England, the side that could feature up to five Tottenham team-mates when the two meet on June 28.
Nearly a month later the tournament will be over and Gladys believes that Toby his pushing our daring CEO into making a decision before a ball in Russia is kicked.
Alderwireld has told the club that he wants to plan his future now, not in a few months time.
This was thought to have taken place in the last few days, and it is the radio silence from THFC that has triggered the ‘Manchester United begin discussions’ headlines to appear in today’s papers.
The Daily Mail say that negotiations are underway but Glad feel that this might be wishful thinking from Toby’s agent.
This is great opportunity for Levy to drop the ball and allow everything unravel in the very last minutes of the window – as always.
Clearly there is a glaring opportunity to do the right thing, but the temptation for the the Bald Weirdo to hang on and see what the deal with the likes of Moussa Dembele etc could overwhelm him.
What makes the most sense, get Toby sold or signed up now, or to wait until after the tournament to be told he’s already mapped out his future?
Tottenham’s first friendly after the World Cup is on July 25th against Roma at the SDCCU Stadium in the International Champions Cup Tournament.
