Manchester United defender set for move to Germany

Manchester United defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah will reportedly spend another season out on loan.

The Dutchman has been part of manager Jose Mourinho’s pre-season preparations but his first-team opportunities are set to be limited.

And having spent last season at Crystal Palace, Fosu-Mensah will ply his trade at Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga for the forthcoming campaign, according to Sky Germany.

Having played most of his career at right back, Fosu-Mensah is behind both Antonio Valencia and Diogo Dalot at Old Trafford, as well as Matteo Darmian should the Italian remain in Manchester.

United begin their Premier League campaign against Leicester on Friday night, the opening fixture of the top-flight season.

Toby Alderweireld set to sign for Manchester United as Tottenham defender closes in on £60m move

Manchester United are closing in on a £60million deal for Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld.

Jose Mourinho made signing the Belgian centre-back a top priority at the end of last season, but United were unwilling to meet Spurs’ £75million valuation of a 29-year-old who would be available for a third of that price next year.

But Mirror Football understands that there has been a breakthrough between the two clubs and that United believe they will get their man inside the next 48 hours.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, aware that Alderweireld was prepared to run down his contract before leaving when he became available for a cut-price fee, has now accepted that it would be better business to allow the former Ajax, Atletico Madrid and Southampton favourite to leave now at an optimum price.


Jose Mourinho could be targeted by Portugal if he leaves Manchester United after summer of frustration

Jose Mourinho ‘s precarious position at Manchester United is being monitored by the Portuguese Football Federation.

The United boss is third favourite in the Premier League sack race after firing an angry broadside at his Old Trafford bosses for a lack of new signings.

And his growing frustration has alerted PFF chiefs back in his homeland that the most successful manager Portugal has ever produced may soon be back on the job market.

Mourinho, 55, has a stated ambition of one day coaching his national team.

And while current Portugal boss Fernando Santos was given a vote of confidence after his reigning European champions crashed out of the World Cup, if the Special One becomes available there will be pressure for that stance to change.
