United linked with Dier and speculation over Alli continues

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho wants to sign Eric Dier from Tottenham, The Sun claim.

Mourinho is said to be a fan of the 23-year-old and The Sun say he is planning a £35m move for him in the summer.

The newspaper believes United planned a move for England international Dier during the January transfer window but Spurs insisted he was not for sale.

It is claimed that Mourinho has £200m to spend at the end of the season and intends to target Dier for a move to Old Trafford.

A source is quoted as saying: “United are interested in Dier, and looked at making a move for him in the January transfer window.

“Obviously that didn’t come off, but Mourinho has him on a list of targets for the summer. He likes him.

“Tottenham do not want to sell him under any circumstances, but you never know what can happen when the money is on the table.”

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich are the latest club to be linked with Tottenham star Dele Alli.

The Daily Mirror claim Bayern have joined Real Madrid, Barcelona and Paris Saint Germain in showing an interest in the 20-year-old.

Bayern are keeping close tabs and could make a move this summer, the Mirror say.
