Danny Rose is reportedly disappointed that the Red Devils have ended their pursuit of his services this summer.
The English international was linked with a move to Manchester United last summer, after expressing his desire to leave Tottenham. However, he wasn’t allowed to leave.
This summer, United were said to be interested in signing a left-back, as reports suggested that Luke Shaw could be on the move this summer after getting frustrated by the lack of playing time at Old Trafford
This would have meant that Mourinho would require to sign a replacement, as Ashley Young would remain as the only player left in that position. Sources suggested that the Portuguese boss considered Rose to be a perfect fit for the role.

But according to the Telegraph, Manchester United have now decided against it, as they look to improve their central defense at the moment. The Red Devils are instead looking to complete a move for Rose’s fellow Spurs teammate, Toby Alderweireld.
Luke Shaw has shown signs that he will fight for his position at the club, allowing Mourinho to not worry about the left-back position for now. But Jose knows that he can still turn to Rose in case Shaw decides to leave this summer.
The report further adds that Everton are also interested in Rose, but Tottenham’s €62.4 million valuation is just too much for the Toffees.
Currently, Danny Rose is in Russia, as he looks to help England end their wait for World Cup glory.
The left-back made only 9 appearances with Spurs last season due to injuries, but Gareth Southgate decided to put his faith in the player nonetheless, with the full-back likely to be given a start in the opener against Tunisia.
