Manchester United have finally made progress in their protracted pursuit of Toby Alderweireld, after arriving at a compromise with Tottenham over a £60 million fee, reports the Mirror.

Marco Silva insists that Everton have been aware of his transfer targets since his first day at the club and stressed that their season hinges on bringing in reinforcements before Thursday's deadline.

According to reports in Spain, Digne is expected to be joined by another out-of-favour Barcelona defender in the form of Colombian centre-back Yerry Mina.

Finally some great news for Manchester United fans in the transfer window. And it seems like Tottenham are ready to cash in on Toby Alderweireld now.

Jose had also handed a list of defenders to the United board that included Leicester City's Harry Maguire.

Twenty people killed in WWII vintage plane crash
Earlier on Saturday, a small plane carrying two parents and their two children crashed in the nearby canton of Nidwalden. Police said a large rescue mission had been deployed to the scene of the crash, including five helicopters.

"It's top secret", Mestre told ESPN FC when asked if United were one of the sides pursuing Mina.

With the player suffering an injury last term, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino turned to Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez as his preferred centre-back partnership.

Toby Alderweireld had an awesome World Cup where he played a key role in helping Belgium finish third.

The Colombia worldwide only joined the La Liga outfit in January - but a lack of playing time and the arrival of former Sevilla man Clement Lenglet has alerted many clubs in Europe to the potential availability of the 23-year-old. Far more than Yerry MIna would cost but experienced in the Premier League.

The transfer window approaches its final days and a number of interesting rumors have been circulating as major clubs prepare for the 2018-2019 season.
