Tottenham bombshell: Senior trio want to quit this summer - report
By Danny Wright
Danny Rose, Kyle Walker and Eric Dier all want to leave Tottenham in the summer, according to a report.
The Sun claims that the senior trio are eager to exit the North London club over worries that a move to Wembley will see Spurs fail to win any major honours in the near future.
The Daily Star have previously reported that Manchester United are willing to splash £110million on the three England internationals in order to boost their chances of winning the Premier League title.
It is understood that Jose Mourinho wants to double their wages to see them move to Old Trafford in the summer.
Dier, 23, is reported to cost United £40million if he is to move away from Spurs, who signed him from Sporting Lisbon in 2014.

The Sun reports that Walker is the most likely of the wantaway trio to abandon Mauricio Pochettino first but Manchester City are said to be in pole position for the right-backs signature.
Spurs owner Daniel Levy is eager that the two Manchester clubs will enter a bidding war for the 26-year-old in order for him to receive a bigger fee.
It is understood that injury-hit Rose is the least likely of the three to leave the North Londoners after he was instructed that he will need to undergo surgery on his knee.
However the left-back has reportedly told his friends that he is also eager to move away from the capital.
Football Insider Verdict
This is perhaps some of the worst news that Spurs fans could hear right about now. They knew that Walker is looking to move away from the club, but to lose Dier and Rose would be a huge blow to any chances they have of making another bid for the title next season. Tottenham haven’t invested money very wisely in the last year so Pochettino might not be trusted to replace them with much quality. He’ll have a lot of money to spend but whether or not he spends it on the right players is very much in the balance. Man United look as though they are going to spend silly money this summer in desperation to get themselves back on to the perch they’ve fell off since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.
