Report: Tottenham don’t need to sell star to Man United

Tottenham are not concerned by Manchester United’s reported efforts to lure versatile star Eric Dier to Old Trafford this summer.

United boss Jose Mourinho is said to be eyeing up a £40million bid for the England midfielder, who has also been playing as part of a back three at Spurs this season.

Mourinho is a big fan of the 23-year-old’s versatility but the Daily Mail reports that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is adamant that none of his star players will leave this summer.

Dier is on a long-term contract at White Hart Lane and is said to earn around £50,000-a-week, but Tottenham are a club in transition and will be forking out £800m for their new stadium. That has subsequently led to talk that some of their bigger names may be sold in order to balance the books.

Levy has also stated that there will be no more pay rises at the club, a fact that has got alarm bells ringing among the White Hart Lane faithful, but if Tottenham are indeed a team on the rise then they can no longer be viewed as a selling club and must instead build on the excellent squad they already have.

Spurs can seal second spot when they face Manchester United in the last ever game at The Lane on Sunday, while United will be hoping to reach the Europa League final when they take on Celta Vigo at Old Trafford on Thursday night.
