Manchester United are set to target Eric Dier instead of Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, per TeamTalk, leaving Tottenham Hotspur fans in hysterics.
Ndombele has been a major target for Spurs this summer, with The Guardian reporting that the club are in talks with the French outfit over a possible deal.
The aforementioned TeamTalk report claims that United attempted to muscle in, however, by making an approach towards the France international.
Ndombele, however, is said to have told the Red Devils that he would prefer to move to Spurs, who finished five points clear of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in 2018/19.
As a result, United are, ironically, instead set to target Eric Dier, of Spurs, as they look to reinforce their midfield in the summer transfer market.
And the latest developments have left Spurs fans in hysterics, with their top target seemingly keen to join them at the expense of their rivals.

Too good to be true. Levy would probably get the same amount for Dier as we would pay for Ndombele
