Manchester United have a deal in place to sign Toby Alderweireld and are waiting for Tottenham to secure a replacement for the centre-back, reports say.

Alderweireld has been Jose Mourinho’s No.1 target all summer and the two clubs have finally reached an agreement.

Tottenham were demanding £75million for Alderweireld, but a compromise has been reached and United are poised to complete the deal.

However, Goal claim Alderweireld’s Old Trafford switch will not be confirmed until Spurs have signed a replacement.

Tottenham have until Thursday to find a new centre-back and United are prepared for the eventuality they could still miss out on Alderweireld.

United explored other options in recent weeks and held talks with Barcelona over Yerry Mina and with Bayern Munich about Jerome Boateng.
