Jose Mourinho is planning to make a move for Spurs’ Danny Rose when the transfer window opens in January.
The full-back recently gained fitness after having been a victim of a serious knee injury, which kept him out of play for 10 weeks.
Reports from Mirror claim that the Red Devils are preparing a £40 million January bid for the Englishman, and could offer Luke Shaw, who has not been in the best of talking terms with the Portuguese manager, in return, so as to reduce the price.
The 27-year-old was left out of the squad from Saturday’s North London derby against the Gunners, after reports of his tussle with boss Mauricio Pochettino came into light.
It has been a while since Mourinho has been looking for a permanent left-back for his team, and the current situation in the Spurs team could see the tactician take advantage to successfully bring the talented left-back to Old Trafford.
Ex-Spurs star Jamie Redknapp, who was present during Saturday’s derby, stated: “I don’t think it’s going to end well, from a Spurs point of view. I’m sure that Danny has probably been tapped up by other clubs because he’s one of the best left-backs around.”
United could double Rose’s wages of £65,000-a-week to seal the deal in January, and also get rid of Luke Shaw in the process, as the youngster has failed to impress since his arrival from Southampton.
