Barcelona Linked with Tottenham Defender
The continual need to re-fresh the squad to prevent complacency and staleness creeping in, generates a raft of transfer speculation when it comes to Barcelona.
Today, lurking in the pages of the news source, the Daily Star, is the insinuation that Barcelona are showing a degree of interest in a Belgian defender currently playing in the English Premier League.
The player in question is the Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Toby Alderweireld.
The 28-year-old is rumoured to be considering his future at the North London club and our referenced source infers that unless the defender signs a new deal he has a clause in his current contract that allow him to move to another club for a very reasonable fee of £25 million, in the summer of 2019.
However, we don`t believe that Barcelona will wait that long and our view is that the hierarchy could well offer Tottenham Hotspur a figure in excess of the £25 million mentioned in the hope of clinching a deal in the summer of 2018.
Here at Vital Barcelona we`ll sit tight and report back further if any information comes our way.
