Manchester United's transfer for Barcelona's Yerry Mina has reportedly fell through following a complication meaning they may have to turn their attention elsewhere.

Manchester United are reportedly set to complete their fourth signing of the summer, with Belgian worldwide Toby Alderweireld closing in on a move.

Sky Sports News reporter Bridge hinted that Alderweireld is likely to leave Spurs in the summer transfer window.

This prompted the Manchester giants to look at alternative targets and they've been strongly linked with Leicester City's Harry Maguire and out-of-favour Barcelona defender Yerry Mina in recent weeks.

Barca now have six centre-backs in their squad and only three - Gerard Pique, Samuel Umtiti and new signing Clement Lenglet - appear guaranteed to be at the club when the season begins.

Toby Alderweireld has been United's top target for this transfer window.

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.

However, the Mirror claim there has been a breakthrough in negotiations with Tottenham and Man Utd are now expected to wrap-up a £60m deal to sign Alderweireld over the next 48 hours.

There is a belief among United staff though that a bid for the 25-year old should have gone in before his impressive World Cup campaign with England. Jose could possibly line the player up alongside Eric Bailly for the 2018-19 season.

Despite a strong World Cup performance that saw him score three goals in Russian Federation, the defender has been pushed further down the Barca pecking order with the arrival of Clement Lenglet.
