Reports making the round claims Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld could both be Manchester United players by the end of the day, with the Red Devils set to spend £75m on the Leicester star and a further £50m on the Tottenham man.

It is understood United are favouring Tottenham’s Alderweireld over Leicester defender Harry Maguire, but latest report suggest Jose Mourinho is trying to announce a deal for both players

The Red Devils are scrambling around trying to find a new centre-half ahead of Thursday’s transfer deadline, with several options having been considered as the summer window runs down.

But given that Leicester are closing in on two defenders – Filip Benkovic from Dinamo Zagreb and Caglar Soyuncu from Freiburg – they are potentially preparing for a big money United swoop.

The Foxes have offered Maguire an improved contract worth £75,000-a-week – a rise of £30,000-a-week from the five-year contract he signed after joining from Hull just last summer – to reflect his new status after the World Cup.

Tottenham are believed to be holding on to a fee of around £75million and are keen on doing business or risk losing the Belgium international for £25m next summer.
