Tottenham Hotspur will entertain no offer for England international midfielder Eric Dier from Manchester United this summer, according to a report.
But reports in the British media have claimed that Mourinho sees Dier as the natural successor to Michael Carrick in United’s midfield and is prepared to guarantee him a starting place in his favored position.
The Daily Telegraph claims Tottenham feels United is attempting to make Dier uneasy at White Hart Lane and believes Jose Mourinho’s pursuit has no chance of success.
Publicly, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has dismissed United’s purported pursuit of Dier as “speculation.”
