Manchester United could offer Tottenham a swap deal in a bid to land Danny Rose, while Arsenal will rival Liverpool for an exciting Brazilian forward, according to Friday’s newspapers.
MOURINHO OPEN TO SWAPPING LUKE SHAW FOR DANNY ROSE
Manchester United are considering offering Luke Shaw to Tottenham as bait for Danny Rose, according to reports.
The Tottenham left-back caused something of a rumpus on Thursday by openly admitting he wanted to quit the club and return to the north, where he is has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford.
And the Daily Star reckons that Jose Mourinho is open to offering Spurs Luke Shaw as part of the deal – with the former Southampton left-back so far failing to prove his value to the Portuguese coach after a series of run-ins last season.
Rose is valued at around £40million by Tottenham and any deal for Shaw could see that figure offset by around half that amount.
While the deal could prove a solution to both parties, there has been no indication yet from either club that the deal could be arranged.
Rose, for his part, seems intent on making one last move during his career.
“I know my worth and I will make sure I get what I am worth. I don’t know how much longer I might have at this level,” he said.
“Anyone who thinks this is primarily for money, that is not the case. But I know what I am worth.”
ARSENAL RIVAL LIVERPOOL FOR GREMIO FORWARD
Liverpool have sent scouts to watch Gremio forward Luan and could end up fighting it out with Arsenal for his signature, according to reports.
The highly-rated forward was on the brink of a move to Russia with Spartak Moscow, but with that deal now seemingly having ‘stalled’, Liverpool are reportedly planning to swoop.
However, The Sun claims Arsenal too are preparing a move for the £26million-rated Brazilian, with both clubs having representatives at Gremio’s clash with Godoy Cruz.
However, any deal for the player move prove complicated as the player has FOUR owners.
Gremio has 70% of Luan’s rights and three other partners have a 10% share, according to the paper.
There could also be an issue over a potential work permit. Luan has just one cap for Brazil and would have to play 25 per cent of Brazil’s games over a two-year period to qualify automatically for a permit.
