Last summer Manchester United were strongly linked with the signing of Tottenham and England international Danny Rose. This was after the player’s outburst which led to him falling out with manager Mauricio Pochettino and the club’s management. Rose apparently feels he is not getting what he deserves at Tottenham in terms of wages and titles, and he made it known to the club in an interview.
This led to Mauricio Pochettino dropping Rose and playing Ben Davies ahead of him at left-back. Although it must be said that Danny Rose started the season injured, he hasn’t had a look in since returning from injury. Sources at the Mirror reckon that Manchester United believe they can sign the player for £40 million this summer after he was dropped for the North London derby against Arsenal on Saturday which the Gunners won 2-0.
Mirror sources must believe Danny Rose is not ready to stay at the club after being dropped, and it is very possible as something must be making Manchester United believe they have a chance of signing the player. Could the Red Devils have received encouragement from the player’s camp?
The report reckons as a way of smoothing the deal, United will either offer cash up front or a deal that would include Luke Shaw going the other way. Shaw, just like Rose, came into the 2018/2019 season injured and has only seen 48 minutes of action so far this season. He has been linked with a move back to Southampton, but we believe a move to Tottenham and the opportunity to continue playing in Europe and fighting for the Premier League may be too tempting for the England international to turn down.
Luke Shaw would have the perfect opportunity of reviving his career at Tottenham should he move there. Shaw is certainly a good player who only needs the new opportunity elsewhere and a manager who trusts him – as Jose Mourinho obviously doesn’t.
A deal may not happen this winter but there is a good chance that United will finally get their man during next summer’s transfer window. Rose reportedly earns £65,000-a-week at Spurs, which United will reportedly double should he agree to sign for them.
