Manchester United Set To Spend £50m On This English Ace: Is He Worth The Price?

Manchester United are ready to splash the cash in pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur defender, Danny Rose. Recent reports have suggested that the Spurs full-back’s time at North London may be numbered and Jose Mourinho now believes that he can secure the services of the English left-back for £50m. The Red Devils’ manager is increasingly confident about his chances of landing the 27-year-old when the winter transfer window opens next month or in the summer.

The Manchester club were also interested in the defender last summer but a deal couldn’t take place as he was recovering from a serious knee injury coupled with the fact that Spurs had already lost one of their full-backs in Kyle Walker to Manchester City, they refused to do business.

However, recent developments have thrown his future at Spurs in doubt. In one of his interviews recently, the 27-year-old complained about the club’s wage structure and admitted that he was considering a move away from North London.

His comments have angered the Tottenham hierarchy and they are now willing to listen to offers for their full-back with a move likely to take place in January or in the summer. Since his remarks, he has been excluded from Tottenham’s match-day squads – including last month’s crucial north London derby at the Emirates but Spurs boss, Mauricio Pochettino is still adamant that he has no problem with Rose.

The Red Devils reckon that reaching an agreement with Tottenham chairman, Daniel Levy who’s a shrewd negotiator will be an uphill task. They have currently used Ashley Young out of position to play as a left-back and the English footballer has done well to adapt to his new role. But the repeated omission of Luke Shaw, the Red Devils’ natural left-back has cast doubt over his future as Mourinho clearly doesn’t fancy him.

Danny Rose has just made 5 appearances for Spurs in all competitions this season. The veteran defender has represented his country at every youth level and has also had the honour of representing England National Football Team 14 times in his career.

However, he’s yet to score or assist for England but will be desperate to play secure regular first-team football with the 2018 FIFA World Cup kicking off in June next year. He will be looking to secure his place in Gareth Southgate’s squad and is now likely to make a move to greener pastures so that he can showcase his talents once again and increase his chances of playing in Russia.

It remains to be seen whether Manchester United cough up £50m for the injury-prone Spurs full-back with Jose Mourinho looking to mount a title challenge in the second half of the season.
