Toby Alderweireld sends message to Tottenham



Rose was touted as a prime target with the Telegraph claiming that United have been eyeing a swoop for the £55m-rated England worldwide - who's expected to leave White Hart Lane after falling out of favour under Mauricio Pochettino last season with Ben Davies Tottenham's first choice left-back.

The Daily Star and The Sun are two of the papers convinced that the tough-tackling Tottenham defender will soon be on his way to Old Trafford.

Alderweireld, who has a £25 million release clause in his contract, is now with Belgium in Russian Federation for the 2018 World Cup.

Apparently United "are in talks with Spurs over the Belgium international" and negotiations are progressing slowly if steadily, although a sticking point is Tottenham's asking price of more than £70m, which is about £20m too high for United.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Alderweireld admitted uncertainty over his short-term future with Spurs.

"I was on medication for a few months - again, nobody knows about that apart from my agent - but I'm off the medication now, I'm good now and looking forward to how far we can go in Russian Federation".

First up and the Telegraph claim United have gone cold on the idea of signing Tottenham's Danny Rose with Jose Mourinho now shelving plans to buy another left-back this summer.

Meanwhile what about the man behind the back four?

Quick across the ground, composed on the ball, and strong in the air, Varane would be a dream signing for United.
