Tottenham’s Danny Rose would be keen to join Premier League giants Manchester United or Chelsea if his current club agree to sell him, say Sky Sports. The full-back hit out at the club in a sensational interview with The Sun which may have put his place at the club in jeopardy.
What would he bring to either side?
Both clubs are on the look out for a left-back. Manchester United will be keen to sign one with Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Ashley Young all out with long-term injuries, whilst Jose Mourinho was not convinced by Shaw last season. Chelsea are also looking to strengthen that position as they seek competition for Marcos Alonso.
Strong on the attack, Rose has massively improved his deliveries into the box and is more impressive with his intelligent runs down the flank every season. Having played as a wing-back at times last season, he’s shown that he has what it takes when he goes out on the attack.
Rose is also good defensively. Having formed part of one of the Premier League’s best defences last season, he clearly has what it takes. Strong in the tackle and quick too, few wingers have great success up against him.
Is a move likely?
It seems so. After publicly criticising the club’s wage structure, Daniel Levy may be prepared to allow him to leave at the right price to avoid spreading discontent. Having already allowed Kyle Walker to depart for £50 million this summer, it is clear that every player in Mauricio Pochettino’s squad has his price.
United may have a slight advantage. That comes purely from their location, after Rose told The Sun, “I will play up north. I don’t know exactly when, but I will get back up north and play some football somewhere… I am going to make it my priority before I retire to play football up there.”
Chelsea will also be keen and may go all out having missed out on the likes of Danilo. The option to stay in London may also appeal to the England international and he would know that he would be going straight into a side that has got what it takes to win silverware sooner rather than later.
