Toby Alderweireld Set To Sign For Manchester United 'In Next 48 Hours'

Toby Alderweireld Set To Sign For Manchester United 'In Next 48 Hours'

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.

Everton successfully fend off challenges from league rivals Manchester United and French outfit Lyon, who too expressed interest in signing Mina.

Now United will need to look to sign yet another centre-back after failing to secure Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld or Leicester's Harry Maguire.

He had been linked with a departure from the club prior to the World Cup, but his performances in Russian Federation have increased his options and seen a variety of sides linked with him. "We will see. The final opinion [on if he stays or goes] is with the coach [Valverde]".

"I don't know what the fee would be but I suggest in the region of £50m and everyone would get good business".

Manchester United's transfer for Barcelona's Yerry Mina has reportedly fell through following a complication meaning they may have to turn their attention elsewhere.

After a fine first season, where he led United to success in the League Cup and Europa League, Mourinho fell short last term.

New arrivals could nudge Smalling out of contention for a starting berth, with the 28-year-old already being linked with ambitious Premier League new boys Wolves, but the England global is planning to stay put.

For fans that saw United rule the game for a generation under Sir Alex Ferguson, it was a largely disappointing campaign. The fact that United had been linked with so many centre-backs illustrated the worries of boss Jose Mourinho about his defensive options.
