Twitter Reacts: Alderweireld to United!

Manchester United are reportedly close to agreeing a deal with Tottenham Hotspur for defender Toby Alderweireld.

The Belgium international has been linked with a switch to Old Trafford all summer, with United said to have lodged a £55m bid for him back in May.

Spurs rejected the bid in the hope that a solid World Cup would raise his price, but with just days left in the transfer window, the North London club look poised to lower their price demands from £75m to £60m.

Alderweireld’s contract at Spurs is set to expire in 2020, and there is a £25m release clause that can be activated next summer, meaning Daniel Levy will surely be desperate to cash in on the 29-year-old.

Leicester’s Harry Maguire and Barcelona’s Yerry Mina are said to be alternatives for Jose Mourinho, but the Portuguese is said to see the Spurs defender as his top choice.

With Thursday’s deadline just days away, a potential deal for Alderweireld is up in the air. Many say that a deal will be wrapped up soon, others suggest that the two clubs are miles from an agreement.

Twitter seems confident in a deal being struck though, and it’s fair to say United fans are excited about the prospect of signing a world class defender.
