Splashed across the back page of the leading tabloid publication that this nation produces is the insinuation that Manchester United are set to launch a raid on their feeder club, Tottenham Hotspur, again.

According to The Sun, Jose Mourinho is looking to reinforce his midfield this summer and the boss has ear-marked Eric Dier as a potential target.

Dier, an England international, is set to be, according to our source, the subject of a bid said to be of the magnitude of £40 million.

Mourinho sees Dier as the natural long-term replacement for Michael Carrick who is fast approaching the end of a long and successful career with Manchester United.

In the past Manchester United have plucked some decent players from the Spurs squad with the likes of Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Carrick taking treading that path with great success, could Eric Dier be the next to do so?

Your thoughts on the above subject matter would be greatly appreciated.
