Manchester United Prepared to Agree Signing of $64million Star – Mourinho’s Priority

Manchester United need a solid defensive midfielder in their team and once again they are targeting England international and Tottenham star Eric Dier.

In the winter transfer window, Jose Mourinho opted to sell a natural DM in the form of Morgan Schneiderlin to Everton. Now, he must sign a proven quality holding midfield star in this summer’s transfer window.

According to the likes of Telegraph and Guardian, Manchester United are prepared to step up in their efforts to agree the signing of Eric Dier, who has always been Jose’s priority target in the position.

The 23-year-old star is naturally a defensive midfielder but in the last campaign, Mauricio Pochettino mainly utilized him in his back line. The Argentine manager opted to use Victor Wanyama as his main holding midfielder.

Last season, Eric Dier featured in 48 games for the North Londoners, scored 2 goals and provided 2 assists.

As per the provided Guardian link, the £50m-rated star ($64million) wants to play in his preferred position and knows that Manchester United can offer him that role.

If he does move to Old Trafford, we can expect him to line up with either Ander Herrera or Paul Pogba in the center of the park under Mourinho. In your opinion, is Dier worth £50million?

    is Dier worth £50million?
    It’s a pointless question, because he’s not for sale, and certainly not to Man Ure.
    Perhaps if Real or Barca put in a huge bid things would be different, but that isn’t going to happen any time soon.

  2. Mohammed Azadg says:

    He is not worthy or class player,his time is not yet at top level…
    Jose has been see his individual quality.he may be makes him top level.Now currently not worthy player.

    No get fabinho

    What a total lack of understanding all these journalist, who parrot one another endlessly, have of Dier’s position and role in the Tottenham team.
    He is not “naturally” a defensive midfielder. He was signed as a central midfielder. Last season saw him moved forward from his “natural” position. But it was also felt that he would end up back in central defence. There isn’t actually a single shred of evidence that he is at all bothered by it. He has stated publicly that he is happy to play wherever the manager wants him to. He is actually playing a pivotal role in the team. He allows the club to play in a three man defence or to step up into midfield leaving a two man defence. This flexibility, being able to change formation and tactics in-game without substitutions, is vital to Pochettino’s vision.

    United are wasting their time. Levy won’t sell to them.

  5. Edward Simon says:

    he is not Worth it, he is still an average player.

  6. Mactini says:

    Dier is a good player which suits Man United. If we could get him..he’d be the Micheal Carrick we bought then from same club.

  7. Ray says:

    Yet another load of regurgitated misguided bullshit. Take your nose out of Manchester United’s collective arsehole and take off the blinkers.

  8. Michael says:

    if defender van djik price can be 70 million. then why can’t Tottenham sell eric dier for 50 million. and he is a cdm.

    if chelsea can sell david luiz for 50 million to psg, then why can’t Tottenham sell for 50.

    if mourinho is still interested in eric dier even if we are not thinking of sale.

    then just ask them to give 2 players plus cash.

    rashford, depay and 30million. then selling eric dier to mourinho no problem.

    depay will become partners with jansenn.
    Rashford will be benched in man utd because of lukkaku and zlatan.

    pochetino will develop him into a lukkaku level. which mourinho can’t :-P

  9. Ally Kimwanga says:

    amazing, you people want Rashford n Depay, but Depay is no longer there.

    • Michael says:

      Jose Mourinho confirmed that Depay had joined
      Lyon today with a deal agreed last night.

      sorry i didn’t saw that news.

      then change the transfer like this.

      2 players plus cash.
      Rashford, chris smalling and 30 million. Chris smalling is wanted by Tottenham.

  10. Ally Kimwanga says:

    in short Dier is not worth with that much.

    The problem is, the nowadays market is very very inflated, that is reason..

    • Michael says:

      r u a manchester united player.

      if manchester united wants him. they spend. we wants 50 million.

  11. Twiinemaxwells says:

    He ‘ś not worth,may be in the region of (30-40)million pounds but a good player if United can add him too.

    • Michael says:

      if you want to get Tottenham worth in epl and champions League we need funds for new signings in this summer.

      now manchester united is interested in signing him. than what’s the problem man.

      if we get 30 million plus rashford and Chris smalling and with this 30 million we can buy Celtic’s mousa dembele. and send rashford on loan to Celtic.

  12. Not the quality United need in that position. The only trouble in solving this problem is the fact that there are not too many players available in that position and if United made a move for them or showed interest the fee would rocket. In that respect they are the perpetrators of their own downfall.
