Danny Rose: Manchester-bound?

Manchester United are poised to land a long-term target in the January transfer window, while there could be incomings at both Arsenal and Manchester City, according to Tuesday’s newspapers.



Manchester United are closing on a shock January swoop for Tottenham full-back Danny Rose, according to reports.

Italian publication Tuttosport, via talkSPORT, claims Spurs are ready to cash in on the England full-back in January, with the player yet to played a game for the club this season due to injury.

United made an attempt to try and sign Rose in the summer without success, but it seems they are ready to make a fresh move – and this time they could find Tottenham far more willing to discuss a deal.

In Rose’s absence, Ben Davies has impressed in the left wing-back role and it is for that reason that Spurs could now be willing to sanction his sale for the right price.

The England player upset Tottenham over the summer by admitting he felt he deserved more money and that he fancied a move back up north before his career was over.

Any deal for Rose would once again place a huge question mark over the long-term future of Luke Shaw at Old Trafford.
