Manchester United are lining up a bid for Tottenham Hotspur’s Eric Dier as a potential replacement for Nemanja Matic, according to a report in England.

The Times, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News, is reporting that the Red Devils are in the market to sign a new defensive midfielder ahead of the 2019-20 Premier League season.

The same article states that Manchester United are looking at England international Dier as well as West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice.

According to the same story, the 20-time English champions are also interested in Newcastle United starlet Sean Longstaff as a potential signing for the future.

Manchester United completed their first summer signing on Friday afternoon following Daniel James’ reported £15m move to Old Trafford from Championship side Swansea City.

The Red Devils are bound to be linked with a host of different players as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to rebuild the Manchester United squad ahead of the new season.

The 20-time English champions finished in sixth place in the Premier League last term to miss out on a Champions League spot for the fourth time in six seasons.

Manchester United appointed Solskjaer as Jose Mourinho’s replacement in December before the Norwegian coach got the role on a permanent basis in March.
