Tottenham have loosened the pursestrings this summer after two silent transfer windows.
Before this summer, Lucas Moura was the last person to arrive at Spurs in January 2018 but so far Mauricio Pochettino has already splashed out on two players.
Jack Clarke was signed from Leeds before being sent back while Tanguy Ndombele was acquired for a club-record £62.5m from Lyon.
And it looked likely that another midfielder could be on the way in the shape of Real Betis star Lo Celso after a huge development.
United had also been in the race for the Argentine, who made his loan from Paris St-Germain permanent for £20m this summer.
But according to The Sun, Spurs have won the race after Lo Celso made the decision to join the north London outfit instead.
However, Daniel Levy does not want to pay up anywhere near the £60m price-tag that Betis have slapped on the playmaker.
The 23-year-old is one of the more highly-rated talents in La Liga after a hugely impressive campaign for Los Verdiblancos.
But with Christian Eriksen’s future in doubt, Spurs are looking for replacements.
Real Madrid have become interested in the Denmark international, interestingly being targeted as a potential alternative to Paul Pogba.
The Red Devils have slapped a whopping £150m asking price on the Frenchman and Eriksen would be a fraction of that, considering he is entering the final year of his contract.
As for Betis, they also have a replacement lined up for Lo Celso already.
Former Liverpool target Nabil Fekir looks set to join the Spanish side for a fee of around £23m, according to The Sun.
It comes a year after a failed move to Anfield, where issues arose in his medical over a problematic knee injury.
