Serie A side open talks with Tottenham over swoop for unwanted defender

Danny Rose TEAMtalk

Serie A side Cagliari have emerged as a contender to sign Danny Rose from Tottenham, according to reports.

Rose has fallen down the pecking order at Tottenham and spent the second half of last season on loan at Newcastle. He started 10 Premier League games for the Magpies.

Now, he has returned to Tottenham – although his future is likely to lie elsewhere. And according to reports in Europe, Rose could move abroad for the first time in his career.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Cagliari are considering a move for Rose to ease their lack of depth at left-back.

The Sardinian club had Luca Pellegrini on loan from Juventus last season, but now need to find a replacement for the Italy international.

Rose could be an option for Cagliari, who have reportedly opened talks with Tottenham over his availability.

Jose Mourinho does not have room for Rose in his plans, and is therefore likely to sanction his departure. However, Cagliari are still thinking about their offer.

Tuesday’s European papers suggested that Spurs have already lined up a Real Madrid star as a replacement at left-back.


Rose open to Tottenham reintegration

Back in August, Rose admitted that he would be willing to play for Tottenham again.

The England international is out of contract next summer, and Spurs won’t extend his deal. However, he is prepared to see out the rest of his contract if no offers arise.

“I am very happy to stay at Tottenham and see my last 10 or 11 months out, I would love to,” he said on the Second Captains podcast. “There is nothing I want more than to play one more time in front of the fans.

“My last game for Spurs was a 1-0 defeat to Liverpool and at the time I didn’t know that was going to be or could be my last game for Spurs.

“I want nothing more than to play in front of the Tottenham fans one more time, just to cherish all the moments we have had over the years with them.

“They have always been good to me, I have possibly given them reasons in the past not to be so good to me, but they know when it was game time I gave everything for them.

“I will continue to do that as long as I am contracted to Tottenham.”
