Hopefully a ‘get outta ma club’ situation leading to Toby being a new contract and him signing it!Suitors are being encouraged to make their move for Alderweireld as it’s common knowledge that the Belgian has a £25m release clause until July 26, 2019.
Serie A side Roma have been linked with a possible swoop for Alderweireld in recent days. On Thursday, Gazzetta dello Sport told their readers that Roma hope to sign Alderweireld at an even larger discount price: €12m. Roma believe they can pay under half of Alderweireld’s current release clause because the defender only has a year to run on his Spurs contract, while the Belgian turns 31 in 2020.

The only reason it's 25 is that he signed a year before the market went bananas. That clause was exorbitant when we were signing him for 12 million.A release clause is a release clause... The only way they get him for half the price is if Toby kicks up a mega shit storm about it.
The reason it's £25 million is because there's only a year left. He's a £50+ million defender.
