Tottenham Hotspur have announced today that 12 of their players are available for transfer this summer, according to the Evening Standard.
One of those players is thought to be England left-back, Danny Rose.
In August 2018, The Mirror reported that the defender was about to join Paris Saint-Germain for a fee in the region of £50 million.
It would have been an eyebrow-raising transfer, to say the least, but the interest seemed genuine.
Last season Rose had a quality season in the Premier League with Spurs and the Parisians courting the player wasn’t really a major shock.
What a difference eight months can make.
The 28-year-old has started just 17 league games this season, often playing second fiddle to Ben Davies.
He can’t really claim to have contributed much to Spurs’ run to the last eight of the Champions League either. Rose has started just once in that competition.
With Pochettino now reportedly set to axe the England man, it asks the question as to whether he’d have been better off cutting his losses in the summer.
Rose wasn’t even Gareth Southgate’s first choice left-back at Russia for the World Cup. Ashley Young took that mantle.
Pochettino will be lucky to recoup half of the £50 million that PSG were prepared to pay when they try and offload him in the summer.
The option not to cash-in eight months ago seems somewhat regretful now from a Spurs point of view.
