Dier has become a star with Tottenham, as the Englishman has flourished as a defensive midfielder. He started off as a centre back and eventually made his way into the midfield.
His positional flexibility is also a reason why he seems like an attractive target.
According to reports, Tottenham have already rejected United’s first bid of 50 million pounds. Spurs consider Dier a future captain and are not ready to sell him.
As a last ditch effort, United are now going to submit a 60 million ‘take it or leave it’ offer to Tottenham.
The ball is now in Tottenham’s court!
