After weeks of speculation, Toby Alderweireld is finally set to put pen to paper on a move to Manchester United, according to reports in the Mirror.
The Red Devils have been chasing the centre-back since the opening of the window, with Mourinho placing him top of his wish list. United and Tottenham struggled to agree on a fee, with the London club originally demanding £75 million for Alderweireld.
A fee of £60 million is now rumoured to have been agreed by the two clubs, and United are confident of getting a deal done in the next 48 hours.
Alderweireld has spent three seasons at Spurs, where he has been a consistent and dependable force in the heart of their defence. Prior to signing for Spurs Alderweireld had stints at Southampton and Atletico Madrid, and made 186 appearances for Dutch giants Ajax.
The 29-year-old became locked in a stalemate with the Spurs board over a new contract, eventually being frozen out of the first team after rejecting an improved contract offer.
Alderweireld is believed to now have his heart on a move to Old Trafford, and if a deal is not brokered during this window, he is willing to let his contract run down to secure a move next summer, as reported by talkSPORT.
United officials are confident of signing the Belgian imminently, however, and could have the defender at their disposal in time for the start of the Premier League campaign.
