FC Barcelona Make Second Bid For Manchester United Target

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has also been linked with a move for the player, who he coached during his days as Chelsea manager.

Toby Alderweireld got the better of Tottenham team-mate Harry Kane when the pair crossed paths in Saint Petersburg but believes the striker's starring role at the World Cup is "just the beginning".

England's Spurs contingent of Danny Rose, Eric Dier, Harry Kane, Kieran Trippier and Dele Alli so almost went all the way, while Denmark's Christian Eriksen had an excellent tournament alongside, Korea's Son Heung-min and Belgium teammates Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele, while Davinson Sanchez was huge in defence for Colombia.

"We'll have to talk to the gaffer [Mauricio Pochettino] at Spurs".

The 29-year-old started just three Premier League games in 2018 following his return from a lengthy layoff due to a hamstring injury.

When asked by Belgian publication Het Nieuwsblad about his future, Alderweireld said: "I really do not know anything yet".

Should Alderweireld go as expected, Tottenham will need cover the back.

However, despite the forwards fantastic record and undeniable talent, there will always be an element of risk when requiring a player from the Dutch top flight, with many players in the past failing to step up and settle into life in the Premier League.

Toby Alderweireld has claimed that his omission from the Tottenham Hotspur team in the second half of last season was "unjustified".

'I was very focused on this tournament, ' he continued.
