Toby Alderweireld Set To Sign For Manchester United 'In Next 48 Hours'

As one door closes another one opens for Mourinho though as Toby Alderweireld is set to join the Manchester United squad in a £60m move from Tottenham, according to The Mirror. Manchester United were thought to have turned their attention elsewhere, but perhaps it was just a smokescreen to instigate new transfer talks with Tottenham once more. And it seems like Tottenham are ready to cash in on Toby Alderweireld now.

Leicester City refuted United's enquiry, with Maguire a genuine second choice; and Mourinho's frustration on the recent tour of the U.S. was visible to all to see.

United have been long-time admirers of the Belgian defender, who has long made clear of his desire to leave Spurs.

He's hellbent on recruiting a defender with the likes of Harry Maguire and Yerry Mina heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Manchester United have been searching desperately for a defender.

Why Paul Manafort's $15, 000 Ostrich Jacket Wasn't…
Prosecutor Greg Andres said it is the government's "intention to call Rick Gates as a witness" at some point in the trial. And Manafort's decision to stand trial instead of cooperation has raised speculation that he may be looking for a pardon.

Alderweireld would represent the signing Mourinho has been chasing for a while - a proven, experienced leader who can solidify a shaky defence.

However, Alderweireld spent much of the second half of the last campaign on the bench amid a purported contract standoff, with boss Mauricio Pochettino preferring to use Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen.

Toby Alderweireld had an awesome World Cup where he played a key role in helping Belgium finish third. Jose could possibly line the player up alongside Eric Bailly for the 2018-19 season.

The Colombia global only joined the La Liga outfit in January - but a lack of playing time and the arrival of former Sevilla man Clement Lenglet has alerted many clubs in Europe to the potential availability of the 23-year-old.
