Tottenham Hotspur are offering Danny Rose to clubs in France and Spain as they step up their efforts to offload the left-back this summer, according to a report from The Sun on Sunday (20/9; page 57).
It would clearly be best for all parties for Rose to move on this summer. There was already plenty of doubt surrounding his future after he left Tottenham on loan in January.
And the signs since his return only made it seem even more inevitable that he could leave. The 30-year-old was not assigned a shirt number ahead of the new season.
And with Tottenham signing Sergio Reguilon, it appears that no one will benefit should Rose stay in North London beyond this window.
The Sun on Sunday (20/9; page 57) reports that Spurs have offered the defender to clubs in Spain and France. It is noted that he has previously been on Paris Saint-Germain’s radar, but may need to move elsewhere if he wants to play regularly.
TBR View: Rose gains little by staying put
If Rose does not secure a move before the window closes, he will likely go into January having not played a first-team game for months. That will do his chances of securing a move few favours.
He has struggled for form in the last couple of years. However, he has previously been one of the best full-backs in the world. And at his age, there is no reason why he cannot continue to play at the highest level for a number of years yet.
It will be a boost for Spurs to move him on. Spotrac shows that £60,000-a-week at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. And that is a lot to pay for a player who is almost certainly not going to play anytime soon.
But it will also be good for Rose to secure a new challenge.
It looks set to be a sad end to his Tottenham career. But it will do no-one any good to prolong the goodbye much further.
