Manchester United target Tottenham midfielder in summer window and more transfer rumours

Manchester United are weighing up a summer transfer for Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier – according to reports.

The Reds are expected to lose Paul Pogba at the end of the season as the MEN understand the Frenchman has told teammates he still wants to leave while Nemanja Matic’s future is also in doubt.

Matic is out of contract in the summer, although United have the option to extend it for a further year, the Serbian admitted earlier in the season he is unhappy with his playing time.

United want to make three signings before the start of next season the Daily Star suggest Dier has emerged as a target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The report states the Reds are long-term admirers of the England international who will have just 12 months remaining on his contract in the summer.

Dier has made just three substitute appearances in the last seven league games under Jose Mourinho and is without a league start since December.

Furthermore, the 26-year-old is a boyhood United supporter which could boost their chances of securing a deal though Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is known to be a tough negotiator.

United have targeted Dier in the past as the former Sporting Lisbon man Mourinho’s preferred midfield target in the summer of 2017, but he reunited with back-up option Matic instead.

Elsewhere, Paris-Saint Germain have been linked with a sensational swoop for United goalkeeper Dean Henderson.

The Englishman is currently spending his second season on loan with the Blades and has emerged as a contender for the England number one jersey at this summer’s European Championship thanks to his excellent displays in the Premier League.

With David de Gea signing a new contract at Old Trafford this season, he faces a tough challenge to usurp the Spaniard as United’s first-choice shot stopper.

The Daily Mail claim PSG have entered the race to sign the 22-year-old during the summer window but will face competition from both Chelsea and Spurs.

Finally, United will face competition from Leicester and Liverpool to sign Brighton defender Ben White.

The 22-year-old is currently spending a season on loan with Leeds United and has impressed under the tutelage of Marcelo Bielsa.

Football Insider claim the Foxes have been keeping tabs on his performances and Leeds have no option to buy the defender at the conclusion of his temporary spell.

United and Liverpool are the two other Premier League sides reported to be interested in the youngster.
