Manchester United to sign Toby Alderweireld in next 48 hours

Toby Alderweireld is a world class defender and he has shown his worth time and time again with the Spurs and a great performance in the World Cup.

Manchester United are finally set to sign Tottenham centre back Toby Alderweireld for around £60m in the coming days, after the two clubs made a breakthrough in negotiations over the weekend.

United had agreed personal terms with the player initially - according to multiple reports - but the latest suggests that Mina's adviser Felipe Russo "moved the goalposts" on the deal and asked for more money.

Everton appear to be edging ever closer to completing the signing of Yerry Mina from Barcelona.

However, Tottenham have chose to relax their stance on the asking price for Alderweireld.

The 29-year-old is set to become a free agent at the end of the 2018-19 season unless Spurs decide to activate a clause in his contract.

Everton and Manchester United appear to be backing away from Yerry Mina.

Mourinho has cut a frustrating figure all summer due to the lack of progress in the transfer window. The towering defender is regarded as one of the best in his position in the Premier League, despite going through a hard 2018-19 season.

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table last season to secure their best finish since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement. Hopefully, the impending capture of the Tottenham superstar puts the Portuguese in a good mood heading into United's first Premier League game of the season against Leicester City in the upcoming week.
