EXCLUSIVE: Ndombele snub sees Man Utd turn to Tottenham star

Manchester United are considering making a move for Eric Dier, after Tanguy Ndombele told them he would rather join Tottenham, we can reveal.

United were very much in the hunt for the outstanding Lyon midfielder, as they look for a long-term replacement for Nemanja Matic – however, it is believed the 22-year-old would rather join Spurs this summer – although he is still considering his options.

Juventus had been leading the chase for Ndombele, but with Maurizio Sarri now taking charge – it remains to be seen if their interest remains, and Spurs are hopeful they will land him.

Should Ndombele arrive, then Mauricio Pochettino’s men are ready to listen to offer for Dier and Victor Wanyama – and Dier does appeal to United, who also remain keen on West Ham United’s Declan Rice.

Dier, however, would represent a much cheaper option – although his form has dipped in recent seasons and it could be argued if he would be an upgrade on Matic.
