Alderweireld expects Spurs stay despite £25m Man Utd links
Toby Alderweireld expects to be playing his football at Tottenham next season despite speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United.
The Belgium defender has been the subject of reported interest from United over the last year with a reported £25million release clause in his current contract at Spurs.
The clause can reportedly be triggered in the final two weeks of the summer transfer window as Alderweireld approaches the final year of his deal at the club.
Despite reports suggesting United could be tempted to meet the terms of that clause, Alderweireld thinks he will be a Spurs player next season.

“I’m going to say the same thing that I’ve been saying for the past couple of years,” Alderweireld told Sport360.
“The only focus is Spurs, because of this focus I think I had a good season as well. I have one year left on my contract, so in my head, I will play for Spurs next season.”
On the Champions League final against Liverpool, Alderweireld added: “We are going to do everything to win it and if we win it I think we deserve it as well.
“If you see our route in the Champions League, it has not been easy.
“In the group Barcelona and Inter, [Borussia] Dortmund in Germany, [Man] City first in England and Ajax in Holland so it was a very tough route.
“I think the mentality of the team showed us that we can achieve anything we want.”
