Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino warned a few months ago that the club might need to undergo a painful rebuild this summer (Evening Standard).
Reports have indicated that Tottenham are open to letting several of their players leave.
Now, a report in The Guardian has claimed that the Tottenham manager will let three of Tottenham’s regular starters last season leave the club – Kieran Trippier, Danny Rose and Christian Eriksen.
The report claims that the Argentine expects Eriksen to join Real Madrid and has identified potential replacements for the Dane. It also suggests that Pochettino will let both Trippier and Rose leave should the club receive sufficient bids.
The report goes on to add that Tottenham offered Roma both Rose and Trippier but the Serie A club were instead keen on Toby Alderweireld due to their problems in central defence. There have even been suggestions this summer that Roma could offer Spurs target Nicolò Zaniolo in a deal for the Belgian defender (Daily Mail).

We believe Trippier needs a fresh start and a move to the Serie A will be perfect for him given his style of play. However, we believe the club should hang on to Danny Rose for at least a couple of more seasons as the 28-year-old was back to his best at the back end of last season.
