Forget Smalling And Blind – These 3 Defenders Will Be A Rock For Manchester United If They Are Signed

Toby Alderweireld

Toby Alderweireld

Another one of those talented Ajax products. Post Ajax he joined Atletico Madrid in 2013 and in his second season there was loaned out to Southampton. It was there where he caught the eye of the English clubs and because of his brilliant performances in 2014-15 season, Tottenham stepped up their interest in the Belgian centre back and signed him on a five year contract. And what a season he has had. He has been an absolute brick wall for Spurs in the heart of the defence. He is one of the prime reasons why Spurs are still up in the 2nd place in the league table.

Alderweireld has particularly performed well in big matches in the English Premier League and has been equally good in the Europa league as well. At 27 years of age, he is yet to reach the prime of his defensive best and once he does that he will really be the one to beat. He also can form a lethal partnership with Chris Smalling in the centre of the defence and if Manchester United can get him, they might have the best central defensive pair in the Premier League. This season he has an average duels percentage of 51% and he also provides a scoring threat and has scored 3 goals.
