Tottenham defender Danny Rose says he has spoken to boss Mauricio Pochettino about reported Manchester United interest in signing the full-back.
The 26-year-old has emerged as one of the top left-backs in the Premier League over the last two seasons, and that rise has seen him linked with a move to Manchester United, Manchester City, and Paris Saint-Germain.
However, he appears to have reaffirmed his loyalty to Tottenham – after frank and open discussions with his manager.
“I have a relationship with my manager where I can go to speak to him, and I have been to him about those reports. We spoke about a lot of things,” Rose told the Evening Standard.
“I am not playing football just for the fun of it. I want to win things. I have seen what’s been around in the last couple of months. I am over the moon considering what people’s opinions of me were three or four years ago.
“When I am 34 or 35, I want to look back and see that I have won something. That is the next step for this team, and to do it we have to keep everyone for as long as possible.
“The best piece of advice the manager has given me was something he gave me a couple of weeks ago: Just enjoy your football, which is what I am going to do. I am not going to be distracted by anything else.
“But it’s nice to change people’s opinions of you and it shows I am doing something right.”
