Toby Alderweireld agrees personal terms with Manchester United - deal yet to be finalised

Tottenham defender Toby Alderwerield has agreed personal terms with Manchester United, with transfer fee yet to be finalised.

The Red Devils have been actively hunting for a centre-back in recent months as the transfer window tends to close on Thursday at 5 pm.

United have been linked with a move to sign Yerry Mina from Barcelona, Harry Maguire from Leicester City and Spurs’ Toby Alderweireld.

Speaking on the newest episode of the show, football consultant McGarry said: “I do think that Daniel Levy is fully expecting to, lets just say ‘exploit’ Manchester United again, in the way they’ve done in the past with Michael Carrick and Dimi Berbatov.

“They’ve taken players from Tottenham on deadline day at inflated prices.

“It’s my understanding United have agreed personal terms with Alderweireld and it’s just down to Levy to sort out the fee for the player who has one year left on his contract.

“I think if Yerry Mina, or any of the other players mentioned don’t come in – Mina looks the most likely, Maguire the most unlikely – then I think they’ll turn back to Alderweireld and it’ll be one of those classic Tottenham-Manchester United negotiations right up to the final minutes.”

Manchester United have made only three signings this summer – Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant arriving at the Theatre of Dreams last month.
