Man Utd currently have a squad that is in the midst of having a surplus of talent at several spots, and are also afflicted with numerous contracts that are on the verge of expiring.
As a result, a quick transfer void is apt to be created over the next two windows, and as of such, they must make their best effort to emerge as a team that has made a gain. With this regard, the Red Devils seem ready to make a double defensive swoop from Tottenham.
The 29-old-defender wishes to be paid the same as defenders from other top English clubs, what with underpaying becoming a recurring feature of controversy at the London club. As a result, the Mancunian side could acquire him for as cheap as £25m.

The source added that Danny Rose is on the list as well, and his recent frustration over the club’s wage policy has made the pacey defender a name that is constantly linked to Old Trafford. Moreover, the man himself is said to be ‘keen’ on a move.
Further, with the likes of Chris Smalling, Matteo Darmian, and Daley Blind reportedly ready to leave the club at the end of this season, the defensive haul will be a vital piece of business for the Mancunian outfit.
However, the probability of Rose playing at Old Trafford primarily hinges on whether or not Luke Shaw continues at the club.
With the young defender, despite being injury-prone, having impressed Mourinho quite well, to the extent that a long-term future is sought for him by the gaffer, the double swoop might prove to be a tricky piece of business for the Reds.
