According to The Sun, Bournemouth are planing to offer David Brooks a new contract in order to stave off interest from Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.

It has been reported by the British tabloid that United are planning to make a move for Brooks either in the January transfer window or in the summer of 2019.

The report has also claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are long-term admirers of the 21-year-old and tried to sign the youngster from Sheffield United in the summer of 2018 before he moved to Bournemouth.

According to The Sun, United and Tottenham will happily pay £40 million for 21-year-old, but Bournemouth plan to increase the young midfielder’s wages to around £50,000 per week in order to keep hold of him.
