According to a report by The Independent, Manchester United sources are expecting the club to secure the services of Alderweireld by the end of the summer.
Manchester United are known to be very keen in signing the 29-year-old Tottenham defender even though they have been linked with a move for Leicester City defender Harry Maguire.
The Belgium international has been on Jose Mourinho’s radar for a long time now with Spurs refusing to sell the defender.
Manchester United boss Mourinho wants to sign another centre-back even though he has Eric Bailly, Marcos Rojo, Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones on the books.
It is rumoured that, despite links to Maguire, the Tottenham centre-back remains their number one priority for the Summer.
