Manchester United are finally set to sign Tottenham centre back Toby Alderweireld for around £60m in the coming days, after the two clubs made a breakthrough in negotiations over the weekend.

Toby Alderweireld has been United's top target for this transfer window.

However, despite links with Manchester United, Alderweireld insists he is focusing on the new season as a Spurs player. However, with Tottenham demanding as much as £75 million for his services, the 20-time English champions were dissuaded from making a move for the Belgian.

According to Manchester Evening News, the Sun report the Red Devils' £35m move for Yerry fell through after a disagreement with agent fees.

However, Tottenham have chose to relax their stance on the asking price for Alderweireld. The 29-year old will be looking to bring the same form to Old Trafford as he partners with Eric Bailly and help Manchester United win trophies this season.

The towering Colombian and his camp are asking for more money, despite United outlining their terms last week.

The Colombia global was closing in on a move to Old Trafford after he agreed a five-year contract with United.

Dembele was one of the most consistent midfielders in the Premier League last season, with no player able to replicate his impressive defensive skills and driving attacking runs.

Mourinho has cut a frustrating figure all summer due to the lack of progress in the transfer window. Leicester City refuted United's enquiry, with Maguire a genuine second choice; and Mourinho's frustration on the recent tour of the USA was visible to all to see.
