Today, the latest on Toby Alderweireld....

As per a growing number of reports in the English press, European champions Real Madrid have joined the race for Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld. Chelsea, Man Utd and Real Madrid are now all thought to be trying to lure the robust defender away from Spurs, with his £25m price-tag proving highly alluring in a highly-inflated transfer market.

Chelsea are monitoring Luke Shaw's situation at Manchester United, the Daily Mirror claim.

Interest from other clubs is also born from the ongoing contract stand-off between the club and Alderweireld, with the defender said to be demanding a huge new wage of around £150,000-a-week, a sum which would smash the current wage structure at the north London club.

Pence: North Korea 'the most tyrannical regime on the planet'
The vice president was assured by the South Korean president that pressure would be maintained on the rogue regime. Mike Pence was leading an American delegation which had taken USA athletes to the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

Mauricio Pochettino insists he was simply protecting the player after he spent three months on the sidelines with a serious hamstring injury but reports suggest Alderweireld felt he was fit enough to play in those key games.

Alderweireld's contract expires in 2019 but Spurs do have a one-year option which should it be taken up would activate a £25m release clause which comes into effect in the summer of 2019.

Los Blancos have been alerted to the fact there has been no breakthrough in talks between his agent and Spurs over a new contract, as well as the fact he wasn't picked in the squad to face Juventus in the Champions League earlier this week.

The latest to come under the lascivious gaze of others is Toby Alderweireld with Real Madrid among a host of clubs looking at the Belgium global, according to the Daily Mirror.
