Toby Alderweired Breaks Silence On Failed Manchester United Transfer

Defender Toby Alderweired has denied claims he wanted to leave Tottenham this summer amid links to Manchester United.

Alderweired was among United's transfer shortlist with Coach Jose Mourinho keen to sign a defender.

But The Red Devils refused to pay the huge sum Spurs demanded and United ended the transfer window with a new centre-back.

The Belgian has now insisted he never wanted to leave the North London Club.

"Everyone was saying everywhere that I absolutely wanted to leave Tottenham," Alderweireld said.

"That's not true. This summer, I quickly understood Tottenham wanted to keep me.

"So, I had to battle to get my place back in the team. To be in the first team again is a victory for me."

Alderweired impressed with Belgium at the 2018 World Cup and helped his country to a third place finish.

He has now also insisted he is fully focused on helping Tottenham compete at the top of the Premier League.

"I just try to help Tottenham as best I can with my qualities," Alderweireld added.

"Regarding my future, everything that was said in the press was not right all the time."
