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

Grant SmithAug 06, 2018

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.

If United seriously want to challenge for honours this season, defence is an area they simply must address - and agreeing a deal for Mina would go a long way towards accomplishing those goals.

Finally some great news for Manchester United fans in the transfer window. However, with Tottenham demanding as much as £75 million for his services, the 20-time English champions were dissuaded from making a move for the Belgian.

According to reports in Spain, Digne is expected to be joined by another out-of-favour Barcelona defender in the form of Colombian centre-back Yerry Mina.

Reports earlier this week claimed United have turned their attention to Mina, who will be 24 next month, following their failure to sign Leicester City's Harry Maguire. And it seems like Tottenham are ready to cash in on Toby Alderweireld now.

New Everton signing Richarlison is known for his activity on social media, and he may have just dropped a big hint over the future of reported Toffees target Yerry Mina.

"It's top secret", Mestre told ESPN FC when asked if United were one of the sides pursuing Mina. Jose could possibly line the player up alongside Eric Bailly for the 2018-19 season.

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table last term to secure their continued participation in the Champions League.

Mourinho has cut a frustrating figure all summer due to the lack of progress in the transfer window.
