Alderweireld has always been manager Jose Mourinho's top target to strengthen the centre of defence, but Daniel Levy's reputation as a tough negotiator, especially with United, has once again proven to be the case.
According to Manchester Evening News, the Sun report the Red Devils' £35m move for Yerry fell through after a disagreement with agent fees. And it seems like Tottenham are ready to cash in on Toby Alderweireld now. However, Spurs notorious Chairman Daniel Levy is demanding £75 million for the 29-year-old, a valuation United are unwilling to match.
Speaking to ESPN, vice-president Jordi Mestre responded when asked if United were interested in the Colombian: "It's top secret".

Injuries and distractions due to the contract situation meant the former Southampton man went through a rough patch and lost his place to new signing Davinson Sanchez in Mauricio Pochettino's starting XI.
Alderweireld went to the 2018 World Cup with Belgium and started all but one game as the Red Devils finished third in Russian Federation. Clubs around Europe know that the Red Devils have money to spend and are pricing a premium on their players to make the move to Old Trafford.
