Jose Mourinho has now set his eyes on Danny Rose thoughtfully, as he believes the English international will become Manchester United’s next first-choice left back in a £50 million deal, reports Daily Mail.
United were interested in pursuing the Tottenham player last summer, but missed out as he was recuperating from a long-term knee injury, and Mauricio Pochettino was reluctant to sell two full-backs simultaneously after selling Kyle Walker to Manchester City.
However, Rose’s interview with The Sun newspaper turned out to spark an uproar, as he questioned the club’s wage structure, and then openly admitted that he would be happy to move away from the White Hart Lane outfit.
This bothered the Spurs’ higher-ups, and hence, they prepared themselves to offload the left-back in the winter or summer window next year. And now, the United gaffer is thinking of exploiting this chance to swoop for the talented defender.
The 27-year-old has been fuming ever since he was left out of the squad for the North London derby. Therefore, he is expected to consider a move to Old Trafford beneficial, given the fact that the Red Devils lack a satisfactory left-back at the moment.
Ex-Saints man Luke Shaw is being hardly considered by Mourinho at United, which leaves them with Ashley Young, who basically is an attacking player, at left-back.
Furthermore, the expected deal of £50 million could suffer increment, as the Red Devils’ fellow contenders for the Leeds United youth academy product’s signature include Manchester City and Chelsea.
Besides, the Old Trafford outfit recognizes that agreeing on a deal with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will be a laborious duty, as he proves to be a very tough negotiator.
Regardless, Rose’s current deal fastens him to the London-based outfit for a couple more years, although it’s unlikely that he will see out the rest of his contract.
