Manchester United closing in on £60m Toby Alderweireld capture

West Bromwich Albion's Irish midfielder James Mc Clean tackles Tottenham Hotspur's Belgian defender Toby Alderweireld during the English Premier League football match between West

It is added that the club are now expecting a £60m deal to go through for the Belgium worldwide.

The Mancunians were then linked with a £35 million move for Barcelona centre-back Yerry Mina, with reports earlier this week claiming that the club had agreed personal terms with the Colombian global.

Manchester United were initially linked with Alderweireld but Spurs' asking price of £75m proved a big stumbling block.

"Paul Pogba is obviously a great player, but we respect those who are at other clubs", Valverde said.

Having failed to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City, the Special One turned his attention to the Colombian blocker.

The Mirror broke the news on Sunday morning, and United are confident of getting a deal tied up within the next 48 hours.

Israeli PM defends Jewish nation-state law after protest
He met with Druze leaders in recent days in an attempt to find a compromise that would work for both sides. The demonstrators were urged to lower party banners and to wave Israeli and Druze flags only.

The Old Trafford board weren't having that and consequently the deal fell through on Friday with the two parties unwilling to budge from their positions.

Nevertheless, it seems Everton will capitalise on the opportunity to recruit Mina, with Sport claiming that the defender will put pen to paper on a five-year deal at Goodison Park.

Jose Mourinho has not hidden his desire to land a new central defender this summer but the club are concerned that both alternatives, Alderweireld and Boateng, are 29 and overpriced.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is demanding £60million for the centre-back, who is desperately wanted by United.

Mourinho has told the Old Trafford board that he needs a high-class centre-back with experience after signing Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof - and now it appears the Portuguese has finally got his man after playing the waiting game.
