It was only last week when Vertonghen came out and said that Tottenham was the only club for him. Well now it seems that the “only club” in that statement was meant as only club in England as with Milan showing interest the Belgium international has come out and said “I like the Premier League, but if Milan called you can not say no.”
This comes only comes a week after he said “Tottenham are definitely my preference”. I wonder what he will say if Real Madrid, Barcelona or Juventus are rumoured to be lining up a bid? or what if Liverpool decide to hop on the band wagon and bid for him? Will one of those clubs then become the one he hopes to join?
Either way the chase for the versatile ball playing defender is well and truly on, with Arsenal, Tottenham, Newcastle all reportedly interested as well as AC Milan it seems that the choice will be down to Vertonghen but also Ajax as they are most likely to sell to the highest bidder.
So will it be Italy, Spain or England that gets to see the young defender in action with Belgium not in the European Championships we may find out sooner rather than later.
