Manchester United are pushing hard to complete a deal to sign Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Eric Dier, according to reports in England.

The Guardian is reporting that the Red Devils are keen to sign the England international in the summer transfer window despite Tottenham’s refusal to sell the versatile midfielder.

The same article states that Manchester United are prepared to double Dier’s current wages in an attempt to get a deal over the line ahead of the 2017-18 Premier League season.

According to the same story, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has already turned down an offer from Manchester United for the former Sporting Lisbon defender.

Indeed, the no-nonsense Spurs chief has informed the Europa League winners that the north London side won’t consider the possibility of losing Dier to their rivals this summer.

Manchester United beat Chelsea to the signing of Belgium international Romelu Lukaku in a £75m deal from Everton earlier this week.

Jose Mourinho made Sweden international Victor Lindelof his first signing of the summer after Manchester United agreed a £30.7m deal with Portuguese champions Benfica back in June.
