The Sun claims Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is keen to take Eric Dier to Old Trafford, and is willing to pay £40 million for his services.
After impressing in the centre of Tottenham’s midfield last season, Dier has struggled to make the same impact this term, losing his place to Victor Wanyama.
The 23-year-old is clearly trusted by Mauricio Pochettino, who has changed his system to accommodate Dier as a third centre-back.
Despite being an England regular, Dier has received mixed reviews this season. But personally I’m baffled so many Spurs fans would be happy to see Dier to leave the club.
The versatile youngster has been a key part of a Tottenham team that has made a huge step up in terms of challenging for major trophies under Pochettino.
His mixed form is primarily a result of his versatility — many are still unsure about where exactly Dier should play.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the rumours.

Why would Dier take a step down and join a worse team?

Dier isn't a good CB & 4th best CM at the club. It's easy to get romantic about it, but business is business. I'd bite your arm off for £40m

So with kane and Dier going Utd, Walker and Rose going City and Dele going Madrid, Spurs are really gonna struggle next season ?
