Man Utd could make surprise move for Spurs defensive midfielder – report



Manchester United are considering a move for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Eric Dier, according to the Times.

Dier was linked with United in the summer of 2017 with former manager Jose Mourinho said to be a fan of the England international.

Since then Dier has struggled for club and country, losing his place in Mauricio Pochettino’s preferred startling line-up at Spurs and struggling for minutes in an England shirt.

But the Times claims Manchester United could revive their interest in the 25-year-old this summer.

The newspaper’s report suggests Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to strengthen in midfield with a new holding player, and Dier is on a list of possible targets alongside his England teammate Declan Rice of West Ham United.

Given Dier’s recent form and injury issues, news of United’s interest certainly comes as a surprise.

The former Sporting Lisbon player could remain useful to Pochettino next term because of his ability to play in midfield or at centre-back.

But if Solskjaer can offer Dier more regular football in his preferred position, it’s impossible to rule out the chance of him jumping ship.


  1. Sell him, if Utd in with a decent offer then I’d say sell. He’s not been as good lately and he’s not classed as homegrown so no major benefits really.
    Declan Rice would be a gr8 alternative but West ham would be very reluctant to sell to us. Alternatively signing Ndombele, Lo Celso and Sander Berge would be gr8
