Tottenham star Danny Rose reportedly keen on Manchester United move

According to The Daily Mail, Tottenham defender Danny Rose has his heart set on a big money move to Manchester United.

What’s the Story?

Danny Rose will snub an approach from Chelsea to fulfill his dream of playing for Manchester United, according to reports.

The 27-year-old, who is valued at £25.2million by Transfermarkt, has been out of action since January with injury and has made a number of public comments that have angered both Tottenham fans and the club hierarchy.

Rose has never hidden his desire to return up to his native north and a move to Old Trafford could well be on the cards.

Would Rose be a good fit for Manchester United?

It’s no secret that Manchester United are lacking in the left-back department, not in terms of numbers but rather quality. Daley Blind and Marcus Rojo have both performed admirably in the role, but neither are natural full-backs.

Furthermore, Luke Shaw has failed to improve on his once exciting young career. The former Southampton man now looks to surplus to requirements at Old Trafford.

Therefore, Danny Rose would be a quality addition who could mirror the pace, strength and offensive abilities shown by United’s other full-back Antonio Valencia.

Are Tottenham willing to sell Rose?

The 27-year-old has made no secret of his desire to improve his career and potentially leave Tottenham. In fact, some of his comments have turned a minority of Spurs fans against him.

With Ben Davies performing so well whilst Rose has faced a long spell on the sidelines with injury, Mauricio Pochettino and Daniel Levy would likely consider a bid, especially if it generates a healthy transfer fee for the club.
