Alderweireld has been said to be Man United’s main central defensive target this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his squad for the 2018-19 season, but nothing has materialised yet.
Spurs are actively listening to offers but their high valuation of the 29-year-old has made negotiations, stretching all the way back to May, difficult.
According to The Mirror, Alderweireld is willing to go as far as letting his current Tottenham deal run down until next summer when he’ll be allowed to leave for just £25m over a two-week period.
He is also said to be ready to reject a move elsewhere if a club does match Spurs’ estimations because his heart is set on a move to Manchester.
Alderweireld has been widely recognised as one of the Premier League’s best defenders since his first season at Southampton four years ago and will undoubtedly strengthen United’s defensive options.
Leicester City’s Harry Maguire and Barcelona’s Yerry Mina have been two names also heavily linked over the summer, especially after their impressive World Cup exploits, but the Belgium international looks to be the one most likely to arrive.
Whether he will is anyone’s guess at this stage.
