Manchester United are set to step up their efforts to sign Eric Dier, according to The Guardian.
The story claims Manchester United are about to go in with a new £50 million bid, despite reports Tottenham have already rejected a £50 million offer for the midfielder.
Earlier this week, The Mirror suggested Jose Mourinho wanted United to make a bid of £60 million to secure the 23-year-old. The Independent believes United’s first bid was under £25 million. The exact fee is clearly up for debate.
Spurs are thought to be unwilling to entertain offers for Dier. However, ESPN contends that United believe the England international is keen to switch north London for Manchester this summer, the main reason being United are able to double his current wages.
The Guardian also claims that while Tottenham want to keep Dier, they are prepared to let Kyle Walker leave for Manchester City.
Spurs can demand crazy fees for Walker and Dier. But for me, losing both would do more harm than good. I expect Walker to go, but Dier to stay put.
