Manchester United need a top quality play breaker in their team to challenge for the Premier League title next season.
Jose Mourinho opted to sell French holding midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin in the winter transfer window and now he does not have a player, who could provide a solid cover in front of the back four.
As per recent reports going on in the media, the likes of Nemanja Matic (Chelsea) and Eric Dier ( Tottenham) are heavily linked with the Old Trafford club.
Last night, we covered a report (via Daily Mail) claiming that the £40m rated Serbian international is ready to push through a move to Man United.
On the other hand, MEN have reported that Dier is desperate to sign for Manchester United. They claim that his desire to move to the Red Devils has intensified lately.
In all fairness, Manchester United must forget about signing Matic because it makes little sense to pay the above mentioned figure for someone who will turn 29 next month.
The England international (23) has been top class in the last two campaigns under Pochettino and he is getting into his peak years. Mourinho needs someone who can serve the club in the DM role for long term and Eric would be the perfect signing.
The former Sporting CP midfielder’s current deal with the North Londoners will expire in 2021 and he earns (Star) $91,000-a-week ($4.7million-a-year).
