Tottenham Hotspur news round-up: Alderweireld deadlock, Zaha too expensive and Trippier not for sale

The latest news and gossip from Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur.

Toby deadlock

A deal that would see Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld head to Manchester United has hit deadlock, according to the London Evening Standard.

The report claims that Spurs want in excess of £55 million for the Belgian defender this summer. United thought such a fee would be enough to secure a move, but Daniel Levy is pressing for more money.

The Spurs star will receive a massive salary increase on his current £120,000-a-week deal. The length of the contract is said to be five years.

United boss Jose Mourinho is still confident a deal can be done, but may need to throw Anthony Martial into any transfer negotiations to get it over the line.

Zaha too pricey

Tottenham are on the verge of ending their interest in Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, as they will not pay the asking price for the player.

The Eagles are not going to budge on a massive £70 million price-tag on the Ivory Coast winger, according to Standard Sport.

(during the Premier League match between Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion at Selhurst Park on May 13, 2018 in London, England.

They report that he is considered in the same bracket as Riyad Mahrez, who could be on his way to Manchester City for £75 million.

Tottenham have earmarked Zaha as a potential target to take them to the next level. But it seems he is simply too costly for a deal to go through.

Trippier going nowhere

Napoli are interested in signing Tottenham right-back Kieran Trippier this summer. The Italian side have been impressed by the defender during recent performances for club and country.

However, the Standard report that he is not for sale and will sign a new deal worth more than his current £50,000-a-week salary.

Trippier has been brilliant since stepping in for Kyle Walker, who left for Manchester City last summer.
