Manchester United would find signing Spurs star Toby Alderweireld much easier signing than Leicester’s Harry Maguire, a report claims.

United are have been linked with moves for both Maguire and Alderweireld so far in the summer transfer window as Jose Mourinho looks to strengthen his rearguard.

Alderweireld has been heavily linked with a move to the Red Devils and it looks likely that he will leave in this transfer window.

According to The Sun, the Red Devils would find it easier to complete a deal for the Belgium international – valued at around £55m – rather than the Englishman.

This is in large part down to the fact that Alderweireld’s contract situation means Spurs risk losing a player for nothing, while the Foxes have no reason to sell Maguire.

Sky Sports journalist Michael Bridge claimed on Wednesday that there was a chance of a swap deal involving Alderweireld and Anthony Martial late in the transfer window.

Sky Sports meanwhile report that Maguire is keen on a move to Manchester, but Leicester do not want to sell having placed him in the £65m bracket.
