Manchester United scouts 'unconvinced by Toby Alderweireld'

Midfield star Fred arrived from Shakhtar Donetsk for a fee of £52m.

Diogo Dalot completed his £17.4m move from Porto last week, but the 19-year-old was pictured on crutches at Soccer Aid match at Old Trafford.

According to a report from the Sun, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is determined to wrap up a deal to sign Tottenham ace Toby Alderweireld before the World Cup kicks off in Russian Federation on Thursday.

Considering the vast size of the potential deal, wrapping everything up before the World Cup begins on Thursday seems to be ambitious to say the least, but with United's financial firepower, it will be far from impossible.

Toby or not Toby, that is the question Manchester United fans are wondering as conflicting rumours emerged about the possibility of Toby Alderweireld becoming a Red Devil.


But the Manchester Evening News has a different take on the transfer, claiming that Alderweireld "isn't a top transfer target on Manchester United's eight-man shortlist".

Although reports elsewhere have suggested that United's scouts have expressed concern about bringing the Belgium global to Old Trafford and are exploring alternative options.

However, at the age of 32 and not actually being a natural left-back, Young isn't what United supporters want in the long run and the club have been called to bring in a full-time option this summer.

But any deal is likely to drag on throughout the summer, especially as Madrid are now searching for a new manager following Zinedine Zidane's surprise decision to step down.
