Jim Pallotta’s consultant Franco Baldini may be working to find an agreement with Tottenham for the Belgian star. Alderweireld seems to be a top priority for Roma.
It’s going to be a very tough negotiation, but the Giallorossi seem to be seriously interested in bringing Toby Alderweireld to the Italian capital this summer. The contract of the 30-year-old will be over in June 2020 and his price-tag should be lower for that reason.
Reportedly, the consultant of the Roma president Jim Pallotta is actively working on this deal. According to Sky Sport, Franco Baldini will get in touch with Tottenham‘s executives on Friday to assess the feasibility of this deal. The sporting director of the Lupi, Gianluca Petrachi, should talk with the intermediary of the player tomorrow.
Toby Alderweireld would be a great addition to Fonseca‘s defensive line. But when a player almost reaches the end of his contract, the competition to sign him becomes fierce. His current salary may not even be a huge wall to climb, but his buyout clause is high, reportedly about 25 million pounds.
Baldini may be good enough to reduce Alderweireld’s price but the player may ask a sumptuous salary to join a club that will not be playing the Champions League next season.
A super player who would lead the defense with supreme quality. The Belgium international would be an absolute delight for the Roma fans.
Can Roma reach an agreement with Tottenham for Alderweireld?
It could happen! But the club of Trigoria will have to make a greater effort to convince the defender to play in the eternal city after having participated in the last Champions League final.
