Man Utd plot double defensive raid on Tottenham

Manchester United are lining up a stunning double raid on Tottenham this summer.

The Sun says Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino faces a fight to keep Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose — with United now plotting a summer move for both key defenders.

Belgian Alderweireld, 29, missed Spurs' Champions League clashes with Italian giants Juventus through a hamstring injury as they crashed out in the last 16.

And he is unhappy at the club's latest contract offer of £110,000 per week plus bonuses, seeking closer to £140,000 a week. If Spurs cannot agree a new deal, a clause in his contract means Alderweireld will be available for £25m in 2019.

That gives Tottenham an incentive to cash in — and United believe they will win the race to sign him.

Left-back Rose, 27, also wants to move to Old Trafford but United first need to offload Luke Shaw.
