Kyle Walker will reassess his Tottenham Hotspur future at the end of the season after holding talks with manager Mauricio Pochettino.
It is understood the England international has spoken to Pochettino about Tottenham’s plans for the future amid interest from Manchester City and United, and claims in Germany that Bayern Munich are interested in the right-back.
Walker is understood to have been disappointed to have been left out of Tottenham’s starting line-up for the 4-2 FA Cup defeat to Chelsea, as Pochettino preferred Kieran Trippier. Pochettino must decide whether to restore Walker to his team for the vital Premier League trip to Crystal Palace tomorrow night. But there may be bigger decisions ahead regarding Walker, particularly if an official bid is lodged by another club.
Walker earns under £70,000 a week at White Hart Lane and all of his suitors would be prepared to pay him much more.
Even though the 26-year-old only signed a new contract last September, Spurs may have to offer him another new deal if they reject an offer for him.
Chairman Daniel Levy regularly increases players’ wages with contract extensions and Pochettino is under no pressure to sell any of his stars. City have also shown an interest in left-back Danny Rose, but also have cheaper targets, while United are lining up a bid for Eric Dier with the promise of playing him in his favoured midfield role.
Central defender Toby Alderweireld has been linked with Inter Milan, but Pochettino said last week: “If some clubs are interested in some players it is very clear you need to knock on the door of Daniel Levy.
“If any player is going to leave the club it is always the club’s decision. All the players today have contracts for the next two or three years, minimum, and we’re not worried.
“I invite all the clubs that want players from Tottenham to come to the training ground and visit our chairman Daniel Levy.”
