    Both "Ich möchte dich sprechen" and "Ich möchte mit dir (!) sprechen" are correct. There's a slight difference in meaning, but it's difficult to explain. The first is more used in situations where you'd like to see someone to talk about s.th. serious, while the second is more a general "I'd like to talk to you".

    Ich möchte mit "dir" sprechen (mit+dative)
    I have only heard the second variant. May be the first one is also correct. Let's see what native speakers say.
