Alderweireld has developed in to one of the best centre-backs in Europe since joining Tottenham from Atletico Madrid in 2015 following an impressive season on loan at Southampton. 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.
Tottenham have been in talks with Alderweireld about a new deal for the Belgium global, but Spurs' wage cap is proving to be a stumbling block.
The article says that Manchester United are very much interested in a move to sign Alderweireld because of the ongoing contract situation at White Hart Lane.

Open conflict across the Syrian border is unlikely to be in the interest of either Israel or Iran-aligned forces at the moment. And an Israeli military spokesman also warned that Iran is playing with fire by infiltrating Israeli airspace.
Alderweireld is now contracted at Spurs until the summer of 2019, which could be extend to 2020 due to a one-year extension option.
However, should that clause be activated then the new deal will include a £25m buyout clause that can be triggered in the summer of 2019 as long as any transfer is completed before the final two weeks of the window.
And The Mirror add that unless Tottenham can agree new terms with Alderweireld over the next few months, the north London club will look to sell him in the summer to avoid losing him in a cut-price deal 12 months later.
The hefty wage packet reportedly being sought by Alderweireld in North London would no doubt prove easier to come by at the Bernabeu, with Real, along with Manchester United, now viewed as the leading contenders for the Tottenham star's signature.
