Manchester United emerge as favourites to land Tottenham ace Toby Alderweireld

The Red Devils are 6/4 as they lead Barcelona and Chelsea by some distance in the bookies market.

The Catalan giants are second favourites at 4/1, while he is 6/1 for a switch to the Blues.

The Belgium international watched from the bench at the Emirates as Arsenal blew Tottenham away 4-2 in the North London derby.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "United are crying out for a world class centre-half – and with it now looking increasingly likely that this will be Alderweireld's last season with Spurs, we reckon a mega money move to Manchester could be on the cards."

Jose Mourinho has made his frustrations public this term after the club failed to sign a new centre back last summer.

The 29-year-old's contract expires in the summer but Spurs have the option to extend his contract by one year.
