According to the Daily Mail, Paris Saint-Germain are willing to offer Toby Alderweireld a bumper contract in a bid to blow Manchester United out of the race for the defender.

The Daily Mail claims PSG are willing to match Toby Alderweireld’s £10million-per-season wage demands to lure him away from North London.

The Belgian central defender’s future at Spurs looks bleak after talks over a new contract collapsed, reports the Daily Mail. Despite attaining full fitness from a hamstring injury, Alderweireld has barely featured for the North Londoners lately.

The report adds that the defender wants a deal close to £200,000-per-week. He also wants a five-year contract, something that Tottenham are very much against because the centre-back is 29 years old, claims the Daily Mail.

The contract wrangles have seen the likes of Manchester United and PSG express their interest in the defender but the report adds that the French giants are ready to move to the front of the queue after agreeing to offer Alderweireld £10m-a-year.

As per the report, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has already told Alderweireld that he is free to leave the club at the end of the season. The Tottenham gaffer has left the matter in the hands of Chairman Daniel Levy.

PSG are reportedly preparing a huge contract for Alderweireld, who has also been linked with a move to United. As per the Daily Star, Jose Mourinho is keen to add a top defender to partner Eric Bailly next season, with Chris Smalling, Daley Blind and Phil Jones all set to be axed.

Going by the Daily Star’s report, Alderweireld does fit the bill to play at United, having established himself as one of the finest centre-backs in the Premier League.
