Man United in talks over transfer of £50m-rated versatile midfielder
Manchester United are still interested in signing Eric Dier this summer, according to The Telegraph.
The report claims United have already had an initial offer for the 23-year-old rejected, but Daniel Levy and Ed Woodword have continued to hold talks over a potential deal in the background.
Spurs apparently value Dier at around £50 million but are under no pressure to sell the midfielder.
United’s interest may have been reignited because of a possible breakdown concerning Nemanja Matic’s transfer to Old Trafford.
It is believed Chelsea are reluctant to strengthen a rival by selling the Serbian to United. There is also further bad blood between the clubs after Joe Mourinho hijacked Chelsea’s move for Romelu Lukaku.
Dier has been a key part of an impressive Tottenham team under Mauricio Pochettino’s management. That said, there has been an ongoing debate over the England international’s best position.
Still, it would be extremely difficult to replace a player as versatile as Dier. For me, Spurs would be wise to keep hold of him.
