Real Madrid join Chelsea in race to sign Toby Alderweireld

Newport County's Irish striker Padraig Amond vies with Tottenham Hotspur's Belgian defender Toby Alderweireld during the English FA Cup fourth round replay football match between Gossip: Man City get Fred; will it be Alderweireld next?

The Belgium worldwide has been left out of the Spurs squad for the Champions League last 16 first leg trip to Juventus, with The Daily Telegraph suggesting the omission throws his future into major doubt.

Real Madrid lead the chase for Tottenham's 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.

Although the Portuguese manager bought in Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof, Toby Alderweireld represents a more experienced option.

Should United not complete a deal this summer, Alderweireld has a £25million release clause that comes into effect in the summer of 2019, which would be seen as a bargain move for a player of his stature in the current market. If so, Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid would be interested.

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has agreed a deal to join Besiktas at the end of the season.

Spurs have got a really sticky situation on their hands with Alderweireld and it appears as though the way Pochettino is managing his injury situation is not helping the club's case of keeping the Belgian in north London. The 36-year-old Swede has not played for United since Boxing Day.

Chelsea are among clubs linked with Toby Alderweireld amid speculation over the Tottenham defender's future. The 25-year-old made his fifth start of the season against Juventus as he continues to work his way back from a troublesome hip injury.

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has already begun looking for houses in Spain ahead of a summer move to Real Madrid, according to Don Balon.
