Manchester United Set To Complete Toby Alderweireld Signing In Next 48 Hours


Tottenham looks to offload: The pursuit for Jack Grealish continues as Spurs hope to sell Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele in order to collect enough money for Aston Villa's creative midfielder.

According to the Daily Star the Frenchman and his agent will have "crunch talks" today about the Old Trafford future of the World Cup-winning midfielder.

Over weeks, a deal with Tottenham for Alderweireld had stalled and that's where many other names came to the fore.

The Belgian global is now in the previous year of his contract at Spurs, so could leave next summer as a free agent. That meant less game time for the 29-year-old.

With regard to Danny Rose, a sale to a fellow Premier League club would harm Spurs by granting a rival with a left-back who still possesses searing pace and attacking nous.

After a fine first season, where he led United to success in the League Cup and Europa League, Mourinho fell short last term.

Jose Mourinho is back in the market for centre-half additions having brought in Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof during the last two summers.

The likes of Eric Bailly, Marcos Rojo, Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelof and Phil Jones all struggled for consistency at the heart of the United defence.

The contracts of Alderweireld and Dembele both are set to run out next summer, which makes the prospect of selling the Belgians a reasonable one.

The Barcelona defender has been strongly linked with the Red Devils throughout this transfer window.
