Mauricio Pochettino speaks out about Eric Dier's future amid Manchester United interest

Fans wave flags ahead of the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United at White Hart Lane

White Hart Lane's final game

Stating that he respects the opinions of anyone who has something to say about his side, Pochettino went on to add; "My job is to be focused on my players and my team and try to work together with our board, our fans, everything that is involved with the club".

Conte said Spurs' expectations were not as high as elsewhere, while Mourinho believes Pochettino has had a good summer having sold only Kyle Walker.

"That makes me laugh, because I don't know why people are so focused on our players and our club", said Pochettino.

While Spurs have cashed in on Walker, Pochettino - who batted away rumours of interest in Everton's Ross Barkley - also gave short shrift to any suggestion that they might also accept a bid for Eric Dier, who is the source of interest from Manchester United.

He said: "Our moment will arrive". Don't be anxious. Because today there are a lot of rumours and stuff about clubs spending big money, and it looks like Tottenham are not ambitious. It's so early and we're calm because our squad is competitive.

"But it's a football match and I want to win, so if we can go there and pick up a victory that would be fantastic".

Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho has admitted that he is looking to bring in a defensive midfield player this summer and Manchester United are claimed to want Dier at Old Trafford.

The Italian further went on to reveal his admiration for Spurs striker Harry Kane, saying the England worldwide is one of the best strikers in the world, and that he would cost at least £100 million. "Townspeople" had two games in the off-season, lost to Manchester United 0-2 and confidently beat Real Madrid 4-1.

"The academy is important because we can produce our own players", Levy told reporters on Tuesday, during the club's pre-season tour of America.

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris, an global team-mate of Mbappe, thinks the teenager is worth the money. "He is very young but he has great potential".
