Three stats that prove Man United must pursue £60m Walker-Rose deal

According to reports from the ever-reliable and totally-not-sensationalist The Sun newspaper, Manchester United are targeting Tottenham defensive duo Kyle Walker and Danny Rose in a shock double-raid on their Premier League rivals.

It’s claimed that Spurs would be incredibly reluctant to lose both in the same transfer window and Man United would likely have to shell out £30million-per-player – a rather substantial sum, even in the modern market, for a full-back.
