Reports: Manchester United To Sign From Premier League Rival

With the transfer window fast approaching, Jose Mourinho's Manchester United are said to be nearing the signing of one of their rivals' star players!

According to the London Evening Standard, the Red Devils have made a formal bid of £40 million (R676 million) for Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld.

The Belgian has reportedly been involved in contract talks with his club all season, but any potential extension is seemingly yet to be agreed.

Many believe the 29-year-old will be on his way out of the club in the coming window, with United, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Chelsea all said to be after his signature.

The Red Devils are apparently confident of luring the player to Old Trafford, especially after it was reported that Spurs have already identified Ajax Amsterdam defender Matthijs de Ligt as his potential replacement.

With one year on his deal, the north London club is said to be willing to let him leave in the next transfer window, though selling to a direct EPL rival may not be ideal.

Alderweireld played just 21 times for Spurs this season due to injury, but is widely considered among the best centre-backs in the league.
