Manchester United will complete a deal to sign Toby Alderweireld from Tottenham Hotspur before the transfer deadline, according to Sky Sports reporter Peter Graves.

The Red Devils are believed to still be in the market for more signings this summer before the transfer window closes on Thursday afternoon.

Manchester United have been strongly linked with a move to bring Alderweireld to Old Trafford from Tottenham this summer as Jose Mourinho aims to bolster his options at the back ahead of next season.

It remains to be seen whether the Red Devils will be able to get a deal across the line before the transfer deadline next week.

However, Sky Sports reporter Graves seems to think that Manchester United could well complete a deal to sign the 29-year-old defender before the deadline.

Speaking on the Sky Sports Transfer Talk podcast, Graves said: “I think Alderweireld to Man United will happen.

“I’ve got a feeling. It has been lingering around so long. Spurs will know it is a chance to make money. I suggest the fee will be in the region of £50m.”

Manchester United have signed three players so far this summer after having brought in Diogo Dalot, Fred and Lee Grant ahead of next season.

The Red Devils will be aiming to be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title next season after they finished in second place in the table and without a trophy last term.
