Manchester United's move for Barcelona's Yerry Mina cancelled

Although the centre-half featured sparsely last season after a falling out with Mauricio Pochettino, Alderweireld is still a top-class defensive option and cannot simply be replaced in the pecking order by the likes of Cameron Carter-Vickers.

Toby Alderweireld is reportedly on the verge of completing a transfer to Manchester United.

Now United will need to look to sign yet another centre-back after failing to secure Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld or Leicester's Harry Maguire.

Over weeks, a deal with Tottenham for Alderweireld had stalled and that's where many other names came to the fore.

He enjoyed a stint at Southampton before sealing a move to Spurs in 2015.

In its meeting, the MPC agreed that the economic dip in the first quarter was temporary, with momentum recovering in Q2. In other words: when inflation is steady at the Bank's 2% target and the economy is running at its maximum speed limit.

However, Goal understands United have pulled the plug on a move for Mina, focussing their attentions on landing Alderweireld instead.

We reported earlier this week that United could seal a deal for Mina for as little as £30m, just seven months after Barca signed him from Brazilian club Palmeiras for £10m.

However, Alderweireld spent much of the second half of the last campaign on the bench amid a purported contract standoff, with boss Mauricio Pochettino preferring to use Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen. That meant less game time for the 29-year-old. Jose could possibly line the player up alongside Eric Bailly for the 2018-19 season.

Toby Alderweireld had an unbelievable World Cup where he played a key role in helping Belgium finish third. If he moves to Manchester United and performs well, he could be a superstar there and Mourinho's defensive style of play might suit him and he could be an apt leader of the defence of the Red Devils.
