With a clause in the 29-year-old’s contract that would significantly reduce that fee in 12 months’ time, Tottenham are working to pen him to a new deal that would get rid of the cheap sale option, as reported by Daily Express.

Alderweireld was close to moving to Manchester United for £50m in May, a fee that would have broken the club’s transfer record for a defender.

Yet, they could pick up the centre-back for just £25m next summer, with Spurs in two minds over his future.

Alderweireld said: “I have another two years’ contract. Tottenham decides about my future.

“of course I have my own idea. But that is not the case now.”

Rumours of a potential exit for the defender come after he was dropped from the Spurs squad towards the end of the season, with manager Mauricio Pochettino preferring Davinson Sanchez.

It did not affect his performances for Belgium, as he played the full 90 minutes in all-but one game.

The Red Devils lost out in the semi-finals, before beating England to claim bronze in the third-place play-off.
