Odds slashed as Eric Dier nears Manchester United move

Manchester United tend to get the players they want under the Jose Mourinho regime. During his first summer at Old Trafford the former Chelsea manager landed all four of the names he handed to chief executive Ed Woodward, and it looks as if it could be the same story this summer.

Having already brought in both Victor Lindelof and Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku, the Special One is now looking to bolster his midfield, and the club seem to be closing in on one of their top targets.

After reports from the Manchester Evening News claiming that Tottenham’s Eric Dier is keen on a move to Old Trafford, the odds have been slashed to 7/4 on Sky Bet for the England international to be a Red Devil come the close of the summer window.

The £21.25m-rated former Sporting Lisbon man, who has excelled under the guise of Mauricio Pochettino, lost his favoured defensive midfield slot at Spurs last season due to the form of both Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama.

With Mourinho looking to find a natural successor to the newly named captain Michael Carrick, Dier would surely be assured of a midfield role in Manchester.
