Manchester United clear favourites to sign Toby Alderweireld

Alderweireld to seal United future?

Toby Alderweireld is looking increasingly likely to end up at Old Trafford this summer.

The Tottenham centre-back has fallen out of favour under Mauricio Pochettino despite many claiming the Belgian is the Premier League’s best defender.

His contract expires at the end of this coming season and all signs suggest he will be leaving North London.

Manchester United’s interest has finally peaked as the transfer market begins to hot up.

Alderweireld is now odds-on at 8/11 to sign for Jose Mourinho’s side and remain in the Premier League.

Nonetheless, if the 29-year-old helps Belgium finally realise their undoubted potential and make the latter rounds of the World Cup this could create a bidding war.

Paris Saint-German are at 8/1 to snare the Belgian away from English shores.

Barcelona are also 8/1 if they are looking to add competition to the Pique-Umtiti strong-hold.

John Hill of Coral said: “Jose Mourinho will be desperate to strengthen up at the back this summer and Toby Alderweireld is likely to be seen as one of his main targets therefore he is odds-on to move to Manchester United,”
