Man Utd will make another move for Spurs man in summer raid

Spurs defender Danny Rose remains a key target for Manchester United, and Jose Mourinho’s side will reportedly make another move for the defender this summer.

Many believed Mourinho’s interest would falter considering Rose’s lack of first-team action this season – but that does not seem to be the case, if the Evening Standard are to be believed.

Rose suffered a serious knee injury last autumn, and has struggled to dislodge Ben Davies in the Tottenham team since his return.

The England international was a target for both Manchester club’s last year, before a knee injury at Sunderland halted his progress.

Then followed the interview where Rose was critical of Tottenham’s transfer policy and wage structure.

Rose was left bemused in December after suggestions he was fuming with Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Rose was substituted on 70 minutes after a clash of heads with APOEL Nicosia substitute Roland Sallai.

The full-back did not want to come off, but the Spurs boss though was not in any mood to take any risks. Kyle Walker-Peters came on to replace him and Rose dashed straight down the tunnel.

Whilst Man City’s interest has waned – following the arrival of Benjamin Mendy – the Red Devils are keen to find another player to fit in at left-back.

Ashley Young has performed well at full back throughout the season, but it’s claimed Mourinho will listen to offers for Luke Shaw and Matteo Darmian once the transfer window reopens – meaning he will be on the hunt for new bodies.
