Mourinho’s longtime target Toby Alderweireld is reportedly set to force a move to Old Trafford this summer according to reports this morning.
The Belgian international battled lot of injuries throughout last season and he eventually lost his place in Mauricio Pochettino’s starting eleven.
He has been heavily linked to Old Trafford since the previous transfer market but the North London club prevented a deal from materializing as they are not willing to let him join one of their greatest rivals in the League.
After a wonderful world cup showing from the experienced left-back coupled with the fact that he has a year left in his contract with the Spur, Manchester United Manager José Mourinho reignites his desire to work with the player, who is regarded as one of the best full-back(s) in the Premier League.
However, According to the Mirror, Manchester United might fail to capture the player as Pochettino seems ready to give the Belgian another chance to prove his qualities to the Spurs faithful.
The British media reports that the Argentine manager might fail to sanction the player’s switch to the Theater of Dreams, considering how inactive he’s been since the start of the transfer window which will be shut down on Thursday.
According to the same source, Tottenham hierarchy have placed a £70m price tag on Alderweireld’s signature so as to scare off Mourinho and his employers from the want-away defender.
