The delay in United's purchase of Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred has been caused by their wait for the Brazil international's work permit, says the MEN.

United are believed to be paying over £50m to secure the signature of the player, who was linked with City in the January transfer window.

Manchester United are in the hunt for another defender but have refused to meet Juventus' asking price for Brazil worldwide Alex Sandro, according to The Daily Record.

United have been strongly linked with a move for Toby Alderweireld but TeamTalk claim the Red Devils are refusing to meet Tottenham's £70m asking price having made it clear they won't go above £55m for the Belgian global so Mourinho has drawn-up a list of alternatives.

The article also claims that the Belgian defender has been stalling over a new contract at White Hart Lane because he feels that he deserves to be paid higher wages by the north London club.

Manchester United are reportedly pondering a summer move for a new full back as we round up the latest rumours on Tuesday, June 12.

Mourinho knows he needs to strengthen his squad if United are to compete for top honours next season having finished a whopping 19 points adrift of Premier League champions Manchester City last season.

The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils are keen on tying up a deal for the Spurs defender as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his defensive options at Old Trafford.

The deal for the Brazil worldwide should be confirmed within the next week.
