Loads of Manchester United fans have been reacting to the latest transfer update, as reports suggest they will not move for Toby Alderweireld this summer.
According to Simon Stone of the BBC, The Red Devils have “no current plan to reignite interest” in Tottenham’s big Belgian.
Alderweireld has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford all summer, but talks have of course been on hold during the World Cup.
It appears those talks may never truly pick back up again though, as Jose Mourinho is instead eyeing up a move for Harry Maguire.

Alderweireld seems to be splitting opinion amongst fans, as the Spurs star is an absolutely tremendous defender, but he is also about to enter his thirties with on-going hamstring problems.
Mourinho needs to make some statement signings to catch up with Pep Guardiola on the other side of town, and Alderweireld is the type of truly top class defender that could get those around him performing better… if he can stay fit.
Fans have been reacting to the update on Twitter, with some celebrating, some fuming, and plenty already lining up other targets.
Either way, you can find some of the best reactions down below…
Looks like it's Harry Maguire Alex Sandro and bale

Chris Smalling for another season. Couldn’t be more happier, honestly.

We really need to sign Toby Alderweireld or another good CB, smalling /Jones has to go. Probably be a part of the deal

Right. We can’t afford world class talent, inspite of being the richest club in the world. Next season already jeopardised, due to failure in transfer market/unwillingness to spend.
