Alderweireld speaks on joining Manchester United

Tottenham Hotspur defender, Toby Alderweireld has said that he never forced a summer transfer to Manchester United and was only focused on regaining his place in his team starting XI.

Alderweireld was identified by Jose Mourinho as one of his summer targets but United were unwilling to meet the £70million buy out clause.

“Everyone was saying everywhere that I absolutely wanted to leave Tottenham,” Alderweireld stated this at a news conference ahead of Belgium’s UEFA Nations League clash against Iceland on Tuesday.
