Real Madrid will lead the chase for Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld.
This season the centre half has been out injured since the end of October, severely hampering his side's defensive ability, and now that he has returned to fitness, being left out of the squad for a crucial Champions League clash has sent rumour writers into overdrive.
Alderweireld is now holding talks with Tottenham over a new contract, with his current deal due to expire in 2019, though a clause triggering an additional 12 months will be activated should no extension be forthcoming, according to The Guardian.
