Man Utd refuse to pay over odds for Tottenham defender Alderweireld

Manchester United deal for Toby Alderweireld stalls? Man United report: Toby Alderweireld talks stall as Tottenham make huge demand

Manchester United are unwilling to match Tottenham's demands for Toby Alderweireld and will walk away from the deal unless a compromise can be reached imminently.

"Also, when I said that Spurs had to do everything they could to hang on to Alderweireld a few months back, I was not thinking Davinson Sanchez would have had as good as season as he has just had". The player impressed in his season-long loan spell at Southampton, which saw Tottenham land him in a permanent deal in the summer of 2015. The Belgian global was a mainstay in the Spurs defence prior to an injury last season.

While Tottenham wished to tie the Belgian global to a new deal, they are unwilling to meet his wage demands and are ready to sell him this summer as they want to avoid his £25 million release clause to come into play next summer.

Reports have suggested that United have offered a deal of around £55m for Alderweireld, yet the deal on the table falls well short of that figure before add-ons that Spurs believe may be not realistic.

Alderweireld's future continues to be mired in uncertainty.

With Jose Mourinho's side being linked with pretty much every player on the planet, some supporters have identified some dream signings.

A deal has been agreed for Brazilian midfielder Fred and Portuguese full-back Diogo Dalot has signed his contract and, as is tradition at Old Trafford these days, posed awkwardly next to a Chevrolet. Injuries to key personnel were a key factor, but the Manchester United boss has been left unimpressed by the performance of some of his centre-backs.

Either one of Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld or Danny Rose would add definite quality to the Red Devils defence.
