Manchester United poised to sign Toby Alderweireld for £60m after making ‘breakthrough’ with Spurs

Two clubs were believed to be some way apart in their valuation, but things have moved quickly

Manchester United are edging closer on a sensational £60million swoop for Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld.

Despite reports that the two clubs were well apart in their valuation of the 29-year-old, there has been a breakthrough.

The Mirror reports that United could wrap up the signing of the Belgian centre-half “inside the next 48 hours”.

He has been one of Jose Mourinho’s main targets to strengthen his defence ahead of the new season.

And it was reported that he was prepared to run down his contract, that expires in the summer of 2019, if Spurs refused to budge on their £75m valuation.

It appears the Spurs man could soften the blow as Jose Mourinho looks like he has missed out on another defensive target.

SunSport exclusively revealed that United’s deal to bring Yerry Mina to the club from Barcelona has collapsed.

Old Trafford officials pulled the plug on the Colombian because of a row over agent’s fees.

Bigwigs are fuming because Mina’s adviser Felipe Russo moved the goalposts.

Russo angered them by asking for more and different payments.

United’s Matt Judge met the agent to sort out the player’s side of the deal and agreed a five-year contract last week.

But Russo has refused to budge on extras in the fee, including money due to him and Mina, 23.

United’s patience ran out when Russo did not meet a deadline to sign off on the deal yesterday, despite warnings on Friday.

The Red Devils play their final pre-season friendly against Bayern Munich in Germany tonight.
