Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose has admitted that he could leave this summer, per The Guardian.
The left-back has enjoyed a stellar season under Mauricio Pochettino but he has claimed that there is a possibility that he could depart the club when the transfer window reopens.
After helping Spurs to the Champions League final, where they will play Liverpool, he said: “I keep seeing my name that I’m being sold, so if that’s the case and it’s going to be my last game for Tottenham against Liverpool, I’m hoping to go out with a bang and lift a trophy.
“It’s a Champions League final so individual situations have to take a back seat and you have to put the club first. We are going to do that. We do realise we have a chance to make history.”
Should Spurs be considering his sale, though? Football FanCast’s writers have their say below!
“Before Spurs’ victory over Ajax in the Champions League, I’d have said the club could afford to let Danny Rose go. However, in Amsterdam, he showed what a fantastic player he can be and as a result, Tottenham must do all they can to keep him at the club. Pochettino will need big game players going forward and the full-back certainly showed he can step up to the plate when needed. With Ben Davies not really showing too much this season, his importance only becomes more elevated.”
“As it stands, Spurs can’t afford to lose Danny Rose. The England international is a solid, reliable performer who would be very hard to replace, and his backup in Ben Davies simply isn’t good enough for a club with aspirations as lofty as Mauricio Pochettino’s. Unless a marquee name is being lined up at left-back, Rose must be kept at all costs.”
“Danny Rose is up there with the best left-backs in world football on his day. Daniel Levy would be a fool to cash in on his most talented full-back in a summer when a handful of Spurs players are looking likely to move on. The manner in which he has bounced back from a serious injury and mental health problems proves he is an invaluable role model for aspiring first-team stars residing in Tottenham’s academy, so Pochettino must do everything in his power to convince him to stay.”
