Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United are set to lock horns once again a bid to sign David Brooks from Bournemouth.
The 21-year-old only made the move to Bournemouth from Sheffield United last summer for £11.5million and penned a four-year contract with the Cherries.
According to The Sun, Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is prepared to offer Brooks an improved contract by doubling his wages to £50,000 a week to try and fend off the interest from the Premier League big boys.
Spurs are said to have been monitoring the progress of the Welsh international for some time and even claim that Brooks choose to join Bournemouth over Spurs when he made the switch last year.
The midfielder has comfortably made the step up to the Premier League and already has five goals and two assists to his name which is already a better return than the three goals he scored for the Blades in the Championship last season.
The report suggests that both Spurs and United are prepared to pay £40million to secure his services with signs suggesting that Brooks could even sign the new deal on the table at Bournemouth.
