Tottenham make shock swoop on £15m United target

Published Add your comment

Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic is now fielding offers from Tottenham as well as Chelsea and Manchester United, according to talkSPORT.

Sobotic has starred for the Bundeliga this season, and has been rated at £15 million. The 22 year old’s agent made it clear to the press this week that the starlet would only consider leaving Borussia if the price was high enough.


"He has a contract until 2014 and it would still take a very important offer to convince Borussia to sell,” agent Stephen Kelly said.

"Arsenal, Barcelona, Chelsea and Manchester United? He's a good defender and it is normal to talk a lot about him, but I can assure you that I have not had contact with any team.”

But Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is reportedly also showing interest in the starlet, and is willing to fork out the super high fee.

The Tottenham manager is faced with long term injuries to key defenders Ledley King and Jonathon Woodgate, and believes Subotic would be perfect for Tottenham’s defensive line up.

But Manchester United are still reportedly chasing Subotic, as manager Sir Alex Ferguson attempts to lower the average age in the Manchester United squad.
