Man Utd set for double transfer raid on Tottenham for Moura and Dier

first_imgMANCHESTER UNITED are plotting a sensational double raid for unsettled Tottenham duo Lucas Moura and Eric Dier, according to reports.The Red Devils missed out on moves for both Premier League stars under former manager Jose Mourinho, but the pair remain high on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s list of targets.2 Lucas Moura and Eric Dier could both be making the switch from London to ManchesterCredit: Getty – ContributorThe Old Trafford club were interested in capturing Brazil star Lucas from Paris Saint-Germain in January 2018, but opted instead to sign Alexis Sanchez.While Mourinho made England International Dier his number one midfield target the summer before, but was forced to turn to former stalwart Nemanja Matic after Tottenham blocked any approach.But since then, both players have struggled to cement their place in Tottenham’s starting eleven and United are primed to swoop.According to the Daily Star, Solskjaer is a huge admirer of versatile Moura and views the South American as the ideal replacement for Romelu Lukaku.The Norweigan failed to land a world-class attacking replacement for the Belgian after moves for Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala fell through.But Solskjaer views Moura as the best solution to that problem, with the Samba star able to imitate Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in operating both outwide and centrally.The £50million winger only signed a new five-year deal with Spurs in July, but has become frustrated by his bit-part role this season.Lucas enjoyed a fine end to last term, especially with his dramatic hat-trick in the Champions League semi-final against Ajax.But he was benched for the defeat to Liverpool in Madrid and his only full match this season was the 1-0 defeat to Newcastle.And the 27-year-old, who was a target for Barcelona this summer, will be increasingly keen to quit the north Londoners if the situation stays the same between now and January.2Latest Manchester United NewsODS ON?Ighalo to leave Man Utd TOMORROW unless dramatic extension can be reachedDEVIL’S ADVOCATEEx-Man Utd star Chadwick dreaded being picked for Keane’s team in trainingPicturedTRAINING DAYFernandes back in his Mini while Pogba arrives for training in yellow FerrariMARCSMANWatch Rashford floor Man Utd team-mates with ‘naughty’ bit of skill in trainingGossip’DEAD’ PAULPogba’s proposed £15m-a-year Real transfer risks wage row after virus pay cutOD TO JOYMan Utd ‘very close’ to extending Ighalo deal says agent in dramatic U-turnMeanwhile, the Star adds that United are also continuing to track out-of-favour Dier as they remain in the market for a holding midfielder.Solsjaer was priced out of moves for West Ham’s Declan Rice and Newcastle’s Sean Longstaff this summer and could make a cut-price swoop for the Spurs man instead.Dier struggled throughout the last campaign with poor form and injuries and is yet to make a single appearance under Poch this year.Tottenham hero Lucas Moura brought to tears as he watches amazing Brazilian commentary of his Champions League winning goallast_img
