Manchester United could rekindle their interest in Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld, reporter Duncan Castes has claimed.

Manchester United were initially linked with Alderweireld but Spurs' asking price of £75m proved a big stumbling block.

Manchester United had appeared to be in pole position to sign Mina but recent reports have suggested they have switched their attentions back to Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld.

However, Tottenham have made a decision to relax their stance on the asking price for Alderweireld.

Manchester United switched their attention towards England global Harry Maguire instead, but were priced out of a move by Leicester City, who were demanding in excess of £65 million for the 25-year old.

Sunday Times reporter Castles believes Manchester United could make a fresh bid to sign the 29-year-old.

Alderweireld to United? Watch this space. Jose could possibly line the player up alongside Eric Bailly for the 2018-19 season.

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.

And Catalan newspaper Sport say Everton have now agreed a deal to sign the 23-year-old defender.

Mina impressed for his country at this summer's World Cup, scoring three goals as Colombia reached the second round, before being eliminated by Gareth Southgate's England side.

But a new challenge in the Premier League now seems forthcoming.

The new season is approaching with the transfer window set to slam shut next Thursday. Hopefully, the impending capture of the Tottenham superstar puts the Portuguese in a good mood heading into United's first Premier League game of the season against Leicester City in the upcoming week.
