Tottenham Hotspur are facing a summer exodus with Eric Dier, Kyle Walker and Danny Rose all wanting to leave the club.
The England trio are being targeted by Manchester clubs willing to double their pay packets — and all three are said to be keen to go.
Talk about avoiding playing at Wembley at all costs.
Dier, valued at £40million, is a leading target for Manchester United and sources at Tottenham claim his head has been turned by the interest.
Walker, 26, is likely to be the first out of the door, after being told he can leave.
Manchester City are in pole position to sign the right-back, although chairman Daniel Levy wants a bidding war.
Left-back Rose, 26, is less likely to leave this summer after being told he needs surgery on his knee.
But he has also told pals he is keen for a move north — and United and City would still be keen to do business whatever his short-term fitness situation.
The trio all earn around £65,000 per week at Spurs and are on long-term contracts.
Yet they know they would earn at least twice as much in Manchester.
They also fear that next season’s move to Wembley will adversely affect Tottenham’s chances of challenging for major honours.
Levy will face a major dilemma if, as expected, Dier makes it obvious he wants to leave.
He is not just a major talent in his own right but also best pals and a positive, steadying influence on star man Dele Alli.
