According to a report on the Daily Star claims Manchester United wants third summer deal done before the start of the world which begins on the 14th of this month.

Reports claim Jose Mourinho is interested in signing Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld but are refusing to match their asking price and have made it clear that they will walk away from a deal unless a compromise can be found before on Thursday.

The Red Devils have reportedly been in talks with Spurs over a deal for their 29-year-old centre-back for several weeks and while the player is keen to seal a move to Old Trafford, the price tag has proved to be a major sticking point.

The Belgium international has been caught up in a transfer storm this summer window, with a 2019 release clause in his contract proving to be problematic.

Spurs had been hoping to agree fresh terms with the 29-year-old, remove a £25 million breaker and tie a proven performer down in north London for the foreseeable future.

Man Utd have offered £55m ($73.52m) for Alderweireld but reports claim Tottenham  value him closer to the £75m ($100.26m) Liverpool paid to sign Virgil van Dijk from Southampton last January, but United are not willing to consider that kind of offer

United have spent close to £70m so far but the club are ready to back their manager further in the market.

Right-back Diogo Dalot has joined for £17.4m from Porto, while an agreement was announced last week for £52m Brazil midfielder Fred.
