De Ligt Alderweireld would be the perfect signings at CB this summer. Youth and Prem experience. Imagine Koulibaly alone would come close to those two fees combined #MUFC— Dave (@DaveAshl) March 14, 2019
3 players we should start our window off with: Alderweireld - no brainer Bruno Fernandes - good no 8, competition for P.P and possibly rabiot - he does have a bad attitude but on a free, I would consider it— Ryan Harrison (@RyanMufc88) March 14, 2019
Honestly speaking, getting Toby Alderweireld and a younger CB makes much more sense. As good as Kalidou Koulibaly is, spending £100m on him will ensure lesser funds for targets in other areas. We need at least 4-5 signings this summer and we cant spend £100m on one player #MUFC— Chirag Gupta (@ChiragG41) March 14, 2019
Toby in, Rojo & Jones to get bombed out!— Jonno Fields (@jonnofields) March 14, 2019
Oh so now #MUFC is FINALLY going after Toby Alderweireld.— Individual 1 LUHG (@The_High_Sparow) March 14, 2019
2-3 years too late.
Alderweireld represents good value this summer, if the £26m clause is to be believed. We should be looking towards a title challenge and he is title challenging calibre.— TheUnitedExpress (@TheUnitedExpre2) March 14, 2019
It’s not been long enough to work out who Ole will allow to leave first. Rojo & Bailly? #MUFC #MUFC_FAMILY
Alderweireld to United?— United In Focus (@UnitedInFocus) March 14, 2019
The Mirror report Tottenham are 'resigned to losing him' to United for £26m due to a clause in his contract
Honestly dont see us signing Koulibaly or any other mega money centre half if we sign Alderweireld. Unless the club/Solskjaer agree with Gary Neville that we need 2 new starting centre backs, but i doubt that. Lindelof has done well enough this ssn to suggest that wont happen.— Mike (@Mike87_MUFC) March 13, 2019

this would be nice start to the summer window, after that we'd just have to finesse some RW and fight for PL title could be close #mufc
Good signing for Manchester United?
Alderweireld is one of the best central defenders in the Premier League, and there is no doubt that the 30-year-old will be a very good signing for Tottenham.
True, the former Ajax and Atletico Madrid defender is 30 now, but he is going strong and ever and will certainly enhance the quality of the United backline.
Alderweireld has made 26 starts and one substitute appearance in the Premier League for Tottenham so far this season, according to WhoScored.
