Rumors from Italian website Tuttomercatoweb suggests that Manchester United could be in for a possible swoop for Tottenham left-back Danny Rose in January. Performing at a consistently high-level in the past few seasons, Danny Rose has forged a reputation for being one of the best attacking minded fullbacks in the league.
However, it hasn’t been a perfect season for Danny Rose, as the English International is yet to make a single appearance this new season, due to his ligament injury. Tottenham, themselves have had a hard time dealing with fullbacks lately.
The Lilywhites lost their number one right back Kyle Walker to Manchester City this summer and struggled to find any proper replacement for the most period of the transfer window, before managing to sign Serge Aurier just before the deadline day. Considering how good Danny Rose has been, in the past few seasons, a move to Manchester could be on the horizon for this Spurs fullback.
Danny Rose could prove to be a huge signing for Manchester United, who have struggled on the left flank due to lack of options. Luke Shaw has remained on the sidelines for the most part of his Manchester United career, while Matteo Darmian’s future is in doubt.
Daley Blind has been the only standout performer for the Red Devils but he too isn’t a definite first choice option for coach Jose Mourinho. And that’s where Danny Rose comes in!
Offensive minded and past, Danny Rose is the epitome of a good Premier League fullback. Rose is phenomenal when it comes to making surging runs into the opposition defence and to push opposing fullbacks into their own half. He can apply the necessary pressure, in order to create a spatial advantage for his team.
Furthermore, Rose is regarded as one of the most dogged players in the Spurs squadron. He whole-heartedly fulfils his duty everytime he is on the pitch. In addition, the 27-year-old is also a brilliant crosser of the ball as well, which is perfectly suited for Manchester United’s style of play.
In the Premier League, there can hardly be any better option than Danny Rose as far as fullbacks are concerned. The English International is one of the most consistently dangerous members of an already lethal Spurs squad and acquiring him in January could prove to be a game-changing decision for Manchester United in the coming years.
