With Danny Rose nearing fitness again, Manchester United are poised to swoop for the left back in January, according to reports on Italian news site Tuttomercatoweb.

The report says that the 27-year-old remains a long-term target of Jose Mourinho’s side and when the transfer window re-opens in January,United are set to offer fresh terms after supposedly missing out on him over the summer.

They also claim Premier League rivals Chelsea remain keen, but that United are the front-runners and are plotting a move to bring him to Old Trafford.

Rose spoke earlier this year about his unhappiness with his terms at Tottenham and his desire to return north and it was widely expected that he would be moved on despite a grovelling apology.

He has been sidelined since the 31st of January with a serious knee injury, but is expected to make a long-awaited return later this month.

Danny has been lauded, not just by Spurs fans, as the best left-back in the Premier League before his injury setback, however Ben Davies has been a very able deputy and has earned rave reviews, especially this season.

So what do we think about the latest rumours surrounding Rose. It isn’t coincidental that they seem to be resurfacing just as he returns to fitness. Do you think he will struggle to get back in the team as Davies has been on good form? Would Spurs be wise to cash in on him at this point? Let us have your thoughts.


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Yet more regurgitated bullsit this time from that we’ll know Italian comic Tuttomercatoweb, perpetuated by our no class press and lazy blogs. So what if Rose raised eyebrows with his ill advised comments a few months ago which showed his illiteracy. The fact remains that he is still a first class left back and number one at that position irrespective of Davies’s good showing in His absence through his long injury lay off. Why would Spurs sell Rose to a direct competitor and particularly in January? Some idiots will point to Jan Vertonghen as a makeshift left back if necessary but he is essential in the centre of our defence. All the crap about Shaw coming in the opposite direction is a dead duck and a backward step irrespective of his age and previous association with Pochettino. Surely if Shaw isnt considered good enough for United, why then should he be good enough for Spurs? The clowns masquerading as journalist ITK have to fabricate stories in order to keep their jobs but of course they know that they can always rely on the dunces believing every word they write and their compatriots both home and abroad will run with the story, nothing new there either.
