The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Red Devils are ready to make one final swoop for the 23-year-old midfielder as Jose Mourinho searches for his third summer signing.
Manchester United are thought to be on the lookout for a holding midfielder this summer and Dier has been touted as a target for the Red Devils.
The same report states that Manchester United are ready to make one more bid but Tottenham are seemingly ready to hold firm and don’t want to cash in on the England international.
The story says that Mourinho is “desperate” to add another holding midfielder to his squad this summer, despite Michael Carrick having signed a new contract until 2018 at the end of last season.
Manchester United confirmed their second signing of the summer last week when they announced the arrival of striker Romelu Lukaku from Everton. The Red Devils have also snapped up defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica.
