The 24 year old Old Trafford man has become something of a scapegoat this term, seen by many as a player who has offered little to the Man United cause, though it’s true that the England man hasn’t been at his best arguably he has shouldered far too much of the burden of blame for a poor debut campaign for manager David Moyes.

Nonetheless Moyes is keen to sell Cleverley and Zaha and this source claims that the Man United boss hopes to secure £20m from the sale of the pair.

Cleverley is into his third season in the Man United first team set-up having spent time out on loan at Leicester City, Watford and Wigan Athletic.

Thus far this season Cleverley has started 16 Premier League fixtures though just three of those have come in 2014.

Tottenham would appear to have more than enough central midfield options with Tim Sherwood being able to call upon Paulinho, Sandro, Etienne Capoue, Moussa Dembele and excellent young talent Nabil Bentaleb, so interest in Cleverley is a little hard to fathom.
