Chelsea and Manchester United are set to lock-horns in a transfer scrap to sign one of the best defenders in the Premier League.

When you think of the top defenders in this country, the likes of Cesar Azpilicueta and Eric Bailly spring to mind. Both the aforementioned sides have more than capable defenders at their disposal, but they are not blessed with teammates on par with their quality.

As per the Mirror, this has forced both teams into the transfer market – and Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Toby Alderweireld is thought to be high on both team’s shopping list.

As the report notes, Alderweireld will be available for a ‘bargain’ £25M in the summer after failing to agree terms over a contract extension with Spurs.

Our report of the Belgian will be, by no means, straightforward. PSG are also thought to be interested. However, we can provide Alderweireld with an opportunity to stay in London and earn presumably astronomical wages.

For £25M, we’d be crazy to pass this up. Get it done!
