Manchester United deal for Toby Alderweireld stalls?

Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld in action

The Belgian defender is keen on a move to Old Trafford and is among United's key targets, but they will look elsewhere if Spurs do not lower their asking price. Tottenham are commanding over £55 million for the Belgian defender, which has led to a transfer standoff between the two Premier League heavyweights.

But there is still one highly rated centre-back who seems up for grab in this summer transfer window and Toby Alderweireld is certainly one of the most accomplished defenders in the Premier League. 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.

TeamTalk claim the Red Devils were hoping to secure a deal worth £55m for Alderweireld but Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has been playing hard ball despite the fact the centre-back has just one year remaining on his contract.

Manchester United and Tottenham are around £20 million apart in their valuations of Toby Alderweireld, sources have told ESPN FC.

United have already got a couple of bits of business done this summer.

It has been reported that Spurs are asking for more than the £55 million transfer fee that the Red Devils are willing to pay for the Belgium global centre-back.

A report by Rob Dawson for ESPN states that United are very much keen on Alderweireld, but are now a whopping £20m away from Tottenham's valuation of him.

Reports have been rife about a possible defensive shuffle at the club, with the likes of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones facing the axe, while Eric Bailly, too, faces an uncertain future.
