Eric Dier claims he did not consider submitting a transfer request to force a move to Manchester United during the summer transfer window, according to the Manchester Evening News.
There is no direct quote stating the above in the report, but author Samuel Luckhurst writes the following: “Eric Dier insists he had no intention of asking for a transfer request amid interest from Manchester United.”
The Tottenham midfielder was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford earlier in July, but nothing materialised.
Even without direct quotes, I think it’s clear Dier didn’t attempt to force a move. Mauricio Pochettino is believed to be a big fan of the 23-year-old, so an exit was always unlikely.
