Transfer News: Manchester United told to stump up £50 million to land Danny Rose

Tottenham have reportedly slapped a £50 million price tag on Danny Rose, with Manchester United interested in signing him in January.

According to a report by Daily Mirror, Tottenham have named their price to let go of the services of Danny Rose in January. Manchester United will have to stump up to £50 million to sign the English left-back in the winter transfer window, with Spurs already lining up replacements for him.

Danny Rose has blossomed into a complete package ever since the arrival of Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham. Over the last three years, the player has progressed by leaps and bounds, and has become one of the core members of a Spurs side that has transformed into genuine Premier League contenders.

However, his future at Tottenham has been under intense speculation, following his comments on the pay disparity at the club. To make matters worse, Pochettino has regularly overlooked him from his matchday squads in recent weeks, despite his return to full fitness.

The report claims that the Spurs boss is ready to sell Rose as he only wants to keep those players who are fully committed to the club, which he believes the player isn’t. He has, thus, instructed his scouts to scour for a replacement, while Manchester United have received a spring in their steps in their pursuit of the defender.

The Red Devils have been tracking Rose for a long time now, with Jose Mourinho believed to be a huge admirer of the player’s talents. The left side of defence has been somewhat of a problem area for the Portuguese manager, thanks in large part to Luke Shaw’s struggles.

The 22-year-old has not been able to feature in Mourinho’s plans at all over the last 18 months, leaving the Manchester United boss to field alternate, makeshift options at left-back – the likes of Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian and Ashley Young have all been deployed on the left side of defence.

Young is the only one who has created any sort of impact from the position, but he is on the wrong side of 30. The situation is hardly ideal for Mourinho, which explains why Rose is a major target.

While there were concerns that Daniel Levy would have been unwilling to sell to a direct title rival, as has been the case previously when Manchester United have been involved, the report suggests that Spurs are ready to let go of the player in January, naming their price for him as well.

Manchester United will have to shell out £50 million in order to secure the services of Rose in the winter transfer window. While it is quite a significant sum, the Red Devils are unlikely to be thwarted by it, and it now remains to be seen if a switch to Old Trafford sees the light of the day.
