Bayern Munich are ready to offer a Tottenham misfit a quick escape route, while Real Madrid are ready to make a move for a Chelsea defender, according to Thursday’s papers.
BAYERN LINE UP MOVE FOR WANTAWAY TOTTENHAM STAR

The German giants have the Spurs centre-back on their shortlist of potential replacements for Jerome Boateng, according to the report in the Daily Mirror.
However, French giants PSG remain keen on a deal for Boateng and reports claim that the Germany star has already agreed a deal with the Ligue 1 club.
That would leave a vacancy at the Allianz Arena and it would appear that Bayern are ready to turn to Belgium star Alderweireld to plug that hole.
As for the player himself, Alderweireld is now focused on the season ahead with Spurs and tweeted after the opening weekend win over Newcastle: “First game, first win. Let’s go and win the title in our new stadium!”
