Man United Set To Sign £60m Tottenham Ace Toby Alderweired (Details)

Manchester United are closing in on a deal to sign Toby Alderweired from Tottenham for a fee of around £60m, according to reports.

Talks between United and Spurs made little progress for weeks with the North London club demanding £75m - a joint world-record fee for a defender - while their Premier League rivals would only stump up £55m.

But, According to The Daily Mirror, Jose Mourinho is finally set to get the defender he has chased all summer.

The Mirror also say that a breakthrough has been made in negotiations between the two clubs and that United are confident of concluding a move inside the next 48 hours.

The pressure is on with the transfer window shutting before the start of the Premier League season for the first time this year, meaning no incoming deals can be done after 5pm this coming Thursday.

But United are apparently set to sign Alderweireld following a u-turn from Spurs chairman and renowned tough negotiator Daniel Levy.

It is believed the Spurs chief has accepted it would be a better business decision to sell the 29-year-old this summer than risk losing him on a free next summer.

Alderweireld has just one year left on his contract with the club and though he hasan optional one-year extension, that would trigger a release clause of just £25m in the final weeks of the 2019 summer window.

As such, given Alderweireld’s determination to leave following stalled contract talks and the form of Davinson Sanchez in his first season at Spurs alongside Jan Vertonghen - a deal is to be done in the coming days.

The Mirror add that United had genuine interest in Leicester City’s Harry Maguire and Yerry Mina of Barcelona as Spurs remained steadfast in their stance that Alderweireld would not go for less than £75m.

But he is now set to become United’s fourth summer signing - after Fred, Diogo Dalot and back-up goalkeeper Lee Grant - for £15m less than that.
