Manchester United have no plans at the moment to rekindle their interest in Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Toby Alderweireld.

Manchester United opened talks with Tottenham earlier in the summer for the Belgian but balked at the financial demands Spurs chairman Daniel Levy made.

According to the same article, Manchester United have looked at other players recently but Tottenham have since indicated that a deal for the defender could be done this summer.

The Brazilian reportedly impressed the Blaugrana bosses when the two sides met in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 last season, and feel he would be a great addition to their squad.

At the beginning of the week, shares in Sky were valued at £14.58 and have closed four days later at £15.45. But the level at which Disney would be required to acquire the rest of Sky has recently been up in the air.

The Chelsea managerial saga is set to be sorted out within a matter of hours as Maurizio Sarri arrives at the club and the future of the 29-year-old could be the first task for the former Napoli gaffer to sort.

The transfer window closes on August 9th this summer, which is on the eve of the new campaign, so United have just under four weeks to get the proposed transfer over the line before the summer window slams shut.

The 29-year-old defender has been on the shortlist of Manchester United defensive targets this summer and he is said to be angling for a move away from Spurs.

The Belgian global is now free to resolve his future after helping his country secure third place at the World Cup with a 2-0 win over England on Saturday afternoon so we could see developments with United over the coming days.
