Tottenham Hotspur Warns Jose Mourinho Over Manchester United’s £40 Million Transfer Raid

Tottenham Hotspur will entertain no offer for England international midfielder Eric Dier from Manchester United this summer, according to a report.

Dier, the 23-year-old, has shown his versatility by playing as one of three center backs at Tottenham this season.

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.”
