Paper Talk: Chelsea’s Bakayoko plan; Spurs want United ace & £40m for star

Date published: Wednesday 25th April 2018 8:10

Man Utd have been told they must offer a player-plus-cash deal to land a Spurs star, while an Arsenal defender looks set to stay, according to Wednesday’s papers.



Manchester United have been told that they will will have to offer £40million plus Luke Shaw if they are to sign Danny Rose this summer.

This is according to The Sun, who claim that Jose Mourinho is still keen on a move for the 27-year-old despite the face he has suffered with injuries and poor form this season.

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.

If they are to part with the full-back this summer, Spurs are set to demand a hefty transfer fee as well as United left-back Luke Shaw as part of the deal.

Recent reports have suggested that the Red Devils want to recoup the £28m they paid for Shaw, who is out of contract in 2019.

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.
