Premier League runners-up Tottenham Hotspur have not received any bids for star player Eric Dier, and have no intention of selling the midfielder this summer. The London giants consider Dier to be a valuable asset for now as well as the future.
According to reports in Sky Sports, Tottenham are set to reject any offer for Dier, as they do not want to cash in on the England international.
Manchester United are looking to sign a defensive midfielder this summer, and are said to be interested in the youngster, with one of their offers already rejected by Spurs.
Jose Mourinho plans another hefty bid, and also to significantly increase the player’s salary, so as to lure him to his nest. But Spurs are said to be uninterested in any deal, and will likely move away from any advances the Europa League winners make.
The English youngster has four years left on his contract at Tottenham, and manager Mauricio Pochettino is happy with his current squad, and especially Dier. The versatile player has represented Spurs 135 times already, and is also a key figure in the national side.
United are also said to be interested in Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic, but the deal has stalled. This has tempted Jose to go for Dier once again, but with Spurs’ resistance, he could be forced to look elsewhere. The youngster signed a contract at Spurs last season, and is therefore, likely to remain with the London outfit.
