Manchester United keeping a close eye on Tottenham Hotspur’s Danny Rose – report

by Leo Nieboer

Manchester United are closely monitoring Tottenham Hotspur left back Danny Rose this summer, according to reports.

Jose Mourinho has expressed interest in securing a new left back ahead of the new campaign, with Jordi Alba and Benjamin Mendy emerging as potential targets.

Rose enjoyed an impressive start to Spurs’ ‘Keep the Pressure On’ campaign last year before damaging his ligaments in January.

And according to M.E.N‘s Samuel Luckhurst, the Portuguese has pin-pointed the 27-year-old as a potential option if Luke Shaw fails to impress next year.

Man United have reportedly given up on their pursuit of Eric Dier after seeing Spurs, always a nightmare in transfer windows, refuse to even entertain a £60m offer.

With this in mind, going after yet another integral member of Mauricio Pochettino’s set-up comes across as foolhardy to say the very least – especially after already seeing one of their full-backs in Kyle Walker join a Manchester club just last week.

Letting another full-back go in the same direction would not only significantly harm Spurs’ chances of maintaining their powerful, direct approach next season; it would be an open admission to the rest of the world that United and City, despite finishing below them last season, remain dominant when it comes overall appeal.
