Tottenham Hotspur will be desperate to complete some business before the summer transfer window comes to a close, having given supporters very little to shout about.
The London club are still yet to make their first signing this summer as they continue to fall behind their Premier League rivals. And, things are about to get even worse for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, as according to The Mirror, Toby Alderweireld is set to sign for Manchester United.
Manchester United are closing in on a £60 million deal for Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld.
And, it’s understood that there has been a breakthrough between the two clubs and that United believe they will get their man inside the next 48 hours.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, aware that the Belgian was prepared to run down his contract before leaving when he became available for a cut-price fee, has now accepted that it would be better business to allow him to leave now at an optimum price.
Spurs’ summer transfer window is set to get even worse as arguably their best defender and one of their leaders is heading for the exits. Indeed, the London club will struggle to find a suitable replacement for the Belgian and are running out of time with the window shutting in just four days.
Indeed, it’s worrying times for supporters as the club have failed to show any ambition and are willing to let one of their star players go. So, Tottenham could miss out on a place in the top four if they fail to secure a couple of signings before the window shuts.
