United encouraged in Rose pursuit


Manchester United are said to be encouraged by the the fact that transfer target Danny Rose was left out of our match day squad for the second league game running according to the Manchester Evening News.

It adds that the left-back has made just two appearances for us since making his long-awaited return to action following nine months out with a serious knee injury and also how Rose has been seeing a psychologist to help him cope with the trauma of the injury, and how he was left ‘fuming’ after previously being dropped for the north London derby earlier this month.

It adds that despite returning to the starting line-up against Dortmund, boss Mauricio Pochettino again decided to leave Rose completely out of his plans in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with West Brom.

It adds that Ben Davies was instead preferred at left-back while Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters offered cover at full-back.

Poch also confirmed that Rose did not have an injury when asked about the 27-year-old’s latest omission in his post-match press conference at the Hawthorn saying “Like any other player, it’s not easy,” he simply said of the decision.

The article reminds us how Rose was fined two weeks’ wages by Tottenham in August after claiming in an interview with The Sun that he was ‘worth more than I am getting’ despite only signing a new five-year deal last year.

It adds that Doncaster-born defender spoke of his desire to return to the north of England and United continue to monitor developments but that It does remain to be seen what effect a potential move could have on Luke Shaw’s long-term future at Old Trafford and the article does say that the The Mirror claim Newcastle are interested in taking the 22-year-old on loan in January.
