According to reports, Manchester United are prepared to launch a £40milion bid for Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier. Reports are claiming that Mourinho has Dier and Griezmann on his transfer list plus a defender.

Manchester United could be launching a £40million bid for the 23-year-old, Mourinho sees the England international as the natural successor to Michael Carrick. The 35-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and is not expected to be offered a new deal at the end of it.

Mourinho spent £150million on new players last summer, but it hasn’t really had the effect that he really wanted. United are well off the pace at the top of the Premier League and currently lie in fifth place in the table 17 points behind leaders Chelsea. Another squad overhaul will take place this summer.

But just as with Griezmann, United target Dier will be another difficult target to land. France international Griezmann has made regular public pronouncements on his future in recent weeks. In all of them he has said that he doesn’t want to leave Atletico Madrid.
