According to the Manchester Evening News, 23 year old Spurs midfielder Eric Dier is desperate for a move away from Tottenham this Summer.
In a quite laughable report written by the outlet, it is claimed that Dier’s desire to leave Tottenham is born out of the reported transfer interest from Manchester United.
The Manchester Evening News also went on to cite previous deals over the transfers of Michael Carrick, Dimitar Berbatov and Teddy Sheringham as evidence of the fact that Tottenham are likely to sell the young midfielder.
The report additionally labels Dier a ‘boyhood United fan’, Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy as ‘more painful than a hip replacement’ and Dier’s new £70,000 weekly wage as a ‘modest salary’.
I’m quite frankly embarrassed by this article. I’m utterly astonished someone actually wrote this and then made the decision to put it on the internet.
I’ve never read a more unintelligent and hateful article about Sport. I don’t know about you, but I’d love to earn that ‘modest’ 70 grand over two years, let alone 7 days.
Let’s put Mr. Samuel Luckhurst’s article into perspective here. SkySports have very recently revealed to us that Spurs have no interest in selling Eric Dier. In fact, they haven’t even received a bid.
According to SkySources, Mauricio Pochettino is only willing to sell players he doesn’t need and Dier does not fall into that category. Therefore, no first team, or even bench warmers, will be leaving Spurs this Summer.
The article released by the Manchester Evening News simply brings shame to journalism, football and sportsmanship and is a hopelessly desperate attempt to stir up some chaos in our camp.
I know I said last time that I wouldn’t be reporting on anymore of the Dier nonsense, but I feel as though this one had to be named and shamed. Plus, I suppose, SkySports did us a favour and put an official end to it too.
Does anyone else feel as though the media’s against us? Are there any transfer rumours you trust this Summer?
Have something to tell us about this article?
