Rose to Man Utd in January?

Manchester United set to bid £50million for Danny Rose – after Tottenham defender is left OUT of the official 2018 Spurs calendar.

Manchester United are ready to make a £50million New Year bid to land Spurs defender Danny Rose.

Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho has not been able to solve his left back problem with Luke Shaw still making slow progress on his way back from injury. Mourinho has had to use both Ashley Young and Daley Blind in that position.

Now he wants a permanent left-back but also someone who can get forward and play a wing-back role as Rose does for Spurs.


It will be a tough ask to get Rose out of Tottenham as they have their own Champions League and title aspirations.

If Spurs have qualified for the knockout stage in Europe by then there is little chance of United getting him before the summer but if they are out then the door might come ajar.

But United will also be banking on Rose wanting the move away and pushing to make it happen.

And the Old Trafford outfit will have to find a way to persuade Daniel Levy to even consider doing business with them.

The Spurs chairman privately vowed that he would NEVER allow a player to go to United against Tottenham’s will after Sir Alex Ferguson hijacked Dimitar Berbatov’s deadline day deal with Manchester City to land the Bulgarian in 2008.

Levy was still fuming after being forced to sell Michael Carrick two years earlier and his determination to stick with his previous vow was demonstrated in the summer when United tried and failed to land defensive midfielder Eric Dier.


That move fell through and they instead turned to Nemanja Matic from Mourinho’s former club Chelsea.
Rose, 27, has only recently returned to training with Tottenham after suffering a knee ligament injury in an away match at Sunderland last January.

Rose has spent ten years at White Hart Lane after moving there from Leeds in a £1million switch.

He has been a first team regular for the past four seasons and made nearly 150 appearances for the club and earned 12 England caps.
