Man Utd transfer news: conflicting reports over Toby Alderweireld deal

Tottenham are rumoured to have offered Alderweireld a deal worth £130,000 a week during the 2017-18 season but the Manchester United target wants £180,000 a week.

According to the Daily Express United "are in pole position to sign Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford".

A transfer to Old Trafford would be a dream move for Rose and he was hoping that a £50m switch would be agreed after the World Cup.

The report says Verratti's agent has already made contact with United chiefs to offer them the chance to sign the 25-year-old and Mourinho could now jump at the chance of signing one of his long-term targets - although no doubt any deal wouldn't be cheap.
