Spurs name their price to Man Utd for defender


Manchester United will have to offer £40million plus Luke Shaw, if they want to sign Danny Rose from Tottenham Hotspur, according to The Sun.

Rose put a lot of Tottenham fans noses out of joint at the start of the season when he said in an interview to the newspaper that he wanted to end his career up north and felt that he deserved to get paid more.

The England international has had an injury hit season which has seen him as second choice to Ben Davies as left-back under Mauricio Pochettino.

According to the report, Luke Shaw has had another bust-up with United boss Jose Mourinho at the training ground last month after asking for assurances about his future and now allegedly sees no way of repairing his relationship with the manager.

Mauricio Pochettino has made no secret of his admiration for the 22-year-old, having worked with him at Southampton, with Shaw even hinting that he would like to work with his former boss again in Poch’s recent book, Brave New World.

Shaw said: “He made me feel that I was the best.

“I do hope that I can play for him again one day, and I think he really wants me to play under him again.”

There are a couple of issues which could affect both deals.  Daniel Levy is known not to want to do any business with United following the Michael Carrick and Dimitar Berbatov deals, along with the fact that Shaw is said to earn around £130,000-a-week at Old Trafford which is more than the likes of Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris receive as a basic wage.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. 100%?

    Rose has 2-3 years of top level football to come, Shaw has 8, and the best still to come.

    I would do like for like swap tbh…. Rose hasn’t been the same since the comments he made previously, and I reckon Poch can get Shaw back to top quality.
