United holding talks over deal to sign 29-year-old World Cup star
According Manchester Evening News (MEN), the Red Devils are ‘still in discussions’ to complete the signing of Toby Alderweireld from Tottenham before the summer transfer window closes this month.
Jose Mourinho is widely known to be chasing the addition of at least one more defender after a season which saw the likes of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones fail to perform at a consistent level.
Alderweireld, a $98,000-a-week star, has been touted as United’s most preferred target due to his Premier League experience and the fact that Tottenham are being forced to sell him.
As per MEN’s new report, the Red Devils are ‘still in discussions’ with Spurs over completing the signing of the 29-year-old.
Alderweireld has already expressed his interest in a move away from Tottenham and Manchester United will perhaps be his best opportunity to compete at the highest level as he enters the latter stages of his career.http://www.fanchesterunited.com/united-holding-talks-over-deal-to-sign-29-year-old-world-cup-star/
