Tottenham Hotspur are ready to sell Danny Rose this summer for a cut-price fee of just £5million, according to a report from Football Insider.

It was not long ago that Rose was considered to be one of the best left-backs in the Premier League and was rated at around £50m.

However, the England international’s performances have declined drastically over the last two seasons, with the 29-year-old’s injury problems not helping his cause.

The long-serving defender was loaned out to Newcastle United in January after reportedly falling out with Jose Mourinho (Daily Mail).

Reports have claimed that Daniel Levy was keen for an obligation to buy the defender to be included in Rose’s loan deal but the Magpies were not keen (The Athletic).

Football Insider now reports that Spurs accept the defender’s value has plummeted due to the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is thus claimed that the North Londoners are prepared to accept around £5m for the left-back, who will turn 30 next month.

Spurs Web Opinion

It is a shame that Rose has fallen off as much as he has. At 29, he really should be at his peak right now but he looks a shadow of the player he was two or three years ago. With his contract running out in a year, I expect the club to do all they can to move him on this summer.
