Manchester United are reportedly preparing a massive £60 million bid for Eric Dier.

According to reports from The Mirror, Manchester United are preparing to test Tottenham Hotspur’s resolve for Eric Dier by placing a massive £60 million bid on the table.

Jose Mourinho is keen to add a central midfielder to his ranks, despite Michael Carrick penning a contract extension until 2018.

United thought that they could lure Dier away from north London with a £40 million bid and an offer to double his wages, but Spurs are reluctant to sell their prized asset.

The report claims that Spurs are prepared to resist all attempts to lure Dier, but it remains to be seen whether the new offer forces them to rethink about their stance on the England international.

The Mirror claims that Dier is keen to move, despite signing a five year contract with Spurs last September worth around £70,000-a-week.

Dier is a key player for Tottenham, and in all probability, Spurs will reject United’s offer.

Having already sold Kyle Walker to Manchester City for £50 million, they will hardly allow another star player to directly join a rival team.
