Toby Alderweireld has made it clear he is open to the possibility of staying at Tottenham despite stories linking him with a move. The Belgian is now on national duty with Belgium, but he isn't ruling out anything as of yet.
Belgium global Alderweireld has been linked with Manchester United after failing to agree a new Spurs deal.
Mourinho is prioritising the signing of a centre-back over a full-back and United have ended their interest in Alderweireld's club team-mate Danny Rose.
Rose expressed a desire to leave Spurs last summer, much to the chagrin of Mauricio Pochettino, but they reconciled after the 27-year-old chose to remain in north London.
"I was on medication for a few months - again, nobody knows about that apart from my agent - but I'm off the medication now, I'm good now and looking forward to how far we can go in Russian Federation".
Sources said they were willing to pay around £50m but Spurs value the 29-year-old at closer to £70m.
"I'm lucky that England gave me that opportunity to get away, refresh my mind and I'll always be grateful to them".
The Belgian defender also believes that England, a team he knows well following his years playing in the Premier League, will have a good tournament in Russian Federation. Let us know in the comments section below.
Injuries could play a part next season, so maybe keeping him, even if he does not start every game is the right way to go. "They have quality and desire, players with a good attitude".
