The pre-season tour in the United States could see Mourinho promote six teenagers up to first team duty in place of his men still out in Russian Federation.

Spurs have the likes of Davinson Sanchez and Eric Dier already in the squad to compensate from a potential Alderweireld exit, which begs the question of what Tottenham should do if they are left with £60million burning in their back pocket.

Alderweireld's advisors are said to be pushing for the move to be completed and United have received encouragement that a fee of around £60m would seal the deal.

Mourinho has been busy in this transfer window, signing Diogo Dalot, Lee Grant and Fred.


The Portuguese boss is keen to strengthen his defence and Alderweireld's arrival is likely to see one of Marcos Rojo or Victor Lindelof leave the club.

"If I was in charge of the FA there would be no doubt that I would keep Gareth Southgate and Steve Holland in their jobs and give them the chance to take the team to the next Euros and the next World Cup".

United have been strongly linked with Toby Alderweireld but with Tottenham demanding big money for the Belgian worldwide Mourinho is on the look out for alternatives and he could finally get his hands on one of his long-term targets.

The Red Devils watched their arch-rivals snatched away the Premier League title last season as Pep Guardiola's men broke the 100-point barrier for the first time.
