There is no denying the fact that Manchester United are title favourites this season, and are currently playing the best football in England. However, if there is one area that can be improved in an otherwise perfect line up, it is the left-back position.
Jose Mourinho has managed to rotate Matteo Darmian, Ashley Young and Daley Blind in that spot until now, but none have been ideally convincing to land the role on a permanent basis. Luke Shaw’s return from injury might solve that crisis, but it can be time consuming for the player, who is extremely injury prone.
In such a situation, former Spurs boss Tim Sherwood has suggested that the Red Devils should turn to Danny Rose as an ideal solution, and pay the premium fee that is demanded. The 27-year-old is one of the finest defenders on the left side in England, and Sherwood believes he can be a perfect fit at Old Trafford for the long run.
While speaking on Sky Sports’ The Debate, he said: “I think Danny Rose is the best left back in the country. Someone like Manchester United are crying out for that sort of player. They would pay premium money for that, and I would recommend that they do.”
Rose publicly exclaimed his disappointment at not being allowed to leave Tottenham in the summer, and is finding it tough to get a starting spot in Mauricio Pochettino’s side ever since.
The player is eager to earn more money and win trophies, both of which can be achieved at Manchester United. A move seems unlikely, but a former boss’s advice might just create the interest needed for a deal to come through.
