Spurs defender no longer on United’s wanted list


According to The Mirror Danny Rose has seen his dream move to Manchester United collapse.

The article says Jose Mourinho has supposedly pulled the plug on a potential £50million swoop for Tottenham’s England left-back as he believes he now has enough options at the position, with Ashley Young and Luke Shaw having been joined by Diogo Dalot, their teenage new signing from Portuguese giants Porto.

It goes on to say that Mourinho has now told executive vice chairman Ed Woodward that adding Rose to his squad is no longer a priority.

Its added that the news will come as a major blow to the 27-year-old, who was desperate to move to United after he publicly stated that he wanted to move north to be closer to his family in an explosive interview with The Sun

The World Cup bound defender admitted last week that he has suffered from depression, which came on top of a catalogue of injuries in the past 18 months.

It goes on to say it’s thought United going cold is purely down to them having other priorities as they look to strengthen their squad in other areas after finishing second but a distant 19 points behind Manchester City.

It adds that Rose may now be forced to move abroad if he wants to leave Tottenham, having already lost his status as automatic first-choice after battling with Welsh international Ben Davies and the former Leeds man also faces a fight with Young to be England’s first-choice left wing-back for the World Cup opener against Tunisia next Monday.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Think they lost interest a long time ago. Not sure this was Danny’s dream in the first place. Unlike Toby, I think Danny was frustrated by his layoff and this affected his thinking. If he commits to the cause I would be happy to see him stay and get behind him.

    Hope he hasn’t burnt his bridges.
