Manchester United were linked with Spurs defender Toby Alderweireld before the World Cup and the rumors have once again gathered pace now.

According to a report covered by Yahoo Sport UK, the Red Devils have been given the green light to agree the signing of the highly rated center back. It is mentioned that Tottenham will consider selling the star if the price is right.

Yahoo Sport UK have further stated that the north Londoners value the defender at 75 million pounds (€84million) but it must be remembered that he could depart the club for just 25 million pounds next summer due to a clause in his contract.

Manchester United had the second best defense in the Premier League last season, they only conceded 28 goals in 38 games. Still, it is clear that Mourinho wants to further strengthen his back line.

The Portuguese boss has already lured fullback Dalot from Porto this summer and as per The Mail, he wants to sign Maguire to strengthen his central defense.

Maguire was solid at the back for Leicester last season but Alderweireld is more experienced and he has proved his worth in the PL over the years. The Belgian international was mostly injured in the last campaign for Spurs but he has been solid at the back for the national side at the World Cup.

Alderweireld and Maguire could start for their respective teams today when Belgium and England will collide in the third place WC play-off. In your opinion, who should Mourinho sign for his central defense?

  1. Even if Maguire is less experienced, I advise mourning to go for him becase he is still young and he will be having a long and a lot to do for Manchester united unlike Toby who is old.

  2. Maguire might be less experienced than Toby but you have to look at the age factor here Maquire has been England’s stand out player for me he’s on a level now with stones if not better you also have to factor in Tobys injury record it ain’t good either so no way I’d pay any were near 50/75£million for a player that’s nearly 30 and in 12 months time you can get him for £25m.Utd don’t need a centre back they have enough sort theverything left back position I’d bring in Sandro and a central midfielder we have enough quality going forward just wish moulin how would utilise martial and Rashford more.

  3. The special one should consider the age factor, Maguire will do better at man Utd.

  4. I’d rather we go in for either Maguire or Dier as they are both younger than Alderwield who we mustn’t forget was injured for the best part of last season. For Died, he can fit in as either a stopper or holding midfielder which can make us have more options in both defence and central defence.

  5. Go for Maguire age factor is a huge factor he remindsme me of Steve Bruce very strong and brave, and most of all Maguire very rarely left out for Leicester, as for Toby why are spurs wanting to let him go may be sommat about him that United dont no about. I myself bye bye smalling the swedish centre back send him out on loan for a season and as the same as Rashford his confident has let him down, Martial oh dear ,he just switched himself off as if he not interested , luke shaw shame, let be honest he has never been the same since that horrific leg break bring in savic , bale ,and a outside left difficult to think who could really fit in that position
