Managers are now making plans for the summer transfer window so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe. Today, Man Utd are linked with a triple raid on Tottenham…
Manchester United are ready to launch a sensational £110m raid on Tottenham for star trio Danny Rose, Kyle Walker and Eric Dier this summer, according to the Daily Star.
Jose Mourinho is gearing-up for a busy summer in the transfer market as he looks to turn United in to genuine challengers for the Premier League and Champions League next season – if they manage to qualify for the competition by beating Ajax.
Several names have been linked with a move to United in recent months but it looks as though Mourinho is plotting a stunning swoop for three of Tottenham’s key players.
The Daily Star claim that United are ready to splash around £110m on Walker, Rose and Dier with the Manchester giants prepared to double their wages to £100,000-a-week in order to lure them to Old Trafford.
Walker’s future at White Hart Lane is in serious doubt following reports of a fall-out with Mauricio Pochettino and the newspaper says United will battle-it-out with Man City over the signing of the £40m-rated right-back.
Antonio Valencia has been excellent for much of the season but the Ecuadorian turns 32 in August so Mourinho is eyeing Walker as a long-term replacement in his back four.
Rose has developed in to arguably the best left-back in the Premier League in recent years and the Daily Star suggest that United are now ready to test Tottenham’s resolve with a £30m bid.
That appears a little low to me considering they value Walker – who’s unsettled at Spurs – at £40m but Rose would be a superb signing for United if they somehow pull off a deal.
Mourinho desperately needs a new left-back with Luke Shaw failing to hold down a regular spot and a number of players have filled-in over the course of the season so Rose would be the ideal signing.
United also need a new holding midfielder to replace Michael Carrick and Dier has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford over the past few months.
The 23-year-old has impressed both at centre-back and in central midfield this season so his versatility would be a useful asset for Mourinho if they could get a deal agreed.
The Daily Star claim United will test Tottenham’s resolve with a £40m bid but Dier only signed a new five-year contract last September so the north Londoners are under no pressure to sell.
The problem for Spurs is that United are seemingly willing to offer the trio big wages so unless Tottenham are ready to match the going rate, the likes of Rose, Walker and Dier could push for moves.
I think Walker is almost certain to leave and he’d be a great signing for United if they win the race for his signature but I’m sure Spurs will do all they can to hang on to Dier and Rose.
