Tottenham are reportedly ready to sell Toby Alderweireld in the summer

But Dutch paper HLN are claiming the North London club will try and cash in on the defender in the summer.

Talks between Alderweireld, 29, and Spurs chiefs have broken down over disagreements on how much the wages should be.

His current deal has the option of a one-year extension and means he is under contract until 2020.

Saying goodbye this summer?

But there is also a £25m release clause that will be activated in the summer of 2019 for the centre-back who has struggled with injury this season.

That means Spurs would have to sell in the next two transfer windows if they want to try and make as much money as possible.

Man United have consistently been linked with a move as boss Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his defence for next season.

The end of the brilliant Belgian brigade?

But The Mirror believes Chelsea are more eager to beat United to the signing and are willing to offer him the same wages as Virgil van Dijk at Liverpool.

Barcelona are also keeping a close eye on Alderweireld’s situation, who joined Spurs from Atletico Madrid in 2015.

All we can say is; good luck to the side who has to negotiate with evil genius Daniel Levy.
