The Evening Standard say talks between Tottenham Hotspur and Man Utd over the transfer of Belgian worldwide defender Toby Alderweireld have stalled. Tottenham are commanding over £55 million for the Belgian defender, which has led to a transfer standoff between the two Premier League heavyweights.

Former Manchester United midfielder Lou Macari has made an interesting observation about Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld and Jonny Evans, who has joined Leicester City from West Bromwich Albion, on social networking site Twitter.

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 Belgium worldwide is widely expected to leave Spurs this summer after failing to tie him down to a new contract.

In fact, Manchester United have been in talks with Tottenham over a possible deal for a couple of weeks now, even though Spurs would prefer not to sell to a rival club.

Not only do we now know for sure it's set in Washington D.C., we also have an indication on how big the map is going to be. We should see similar gameplay from the first title, but with new weapons and hopefully a better end-game experience.

United are prepared to pay him more and are ready to offer him a five-year deal to move to Old Trafford.

The player's addition would be much welcome at Old Trafford too, with Jose Mourinho cutting a frustrated figure over his side's defensive output in the second half of the 2017-18 season.

Manchester United may look at alternatives for Alderweireld with Mourinho eyeing Raphael Varane or Sevilla's Clement Lenglet.

"Also, when I said that Spurs had to do everything they could to hang on to Alderweireld a few months back, I was not thinking Davinson Sanchez would have had as good as season as he has just had".
