Alderweireld's current deal contains a release clause of £25 million which activates in the summer of 2019, provided a deal is completed before the final 14 days of the transfer window.

Chelsea lead chase for Shaw

Chelsea are ready to offer Luke Shaw a Manchester United exit route in the summer, reports the Daily Mail.

The Evening Chronicle, meanwhile, reports that Newcastle are also in the race to sign Shaw as they look to improve their options at left-back.

Chelsea are also monitoring Ramsey, who has suggested his contract talks were made secondary, behind the likes of Alexis and Mesut Ozil.
