Danny Rose has made his desire to leave Tottenham well-known over the course of last season, coming out in the media and admitting on numerous occasions his desire to move north.
“I will play up north. I don’t know exactly when, but I will get back up north and play some football somewhere. I moved away from home at 16,” Rose told The Sun last August.”
“Yes I’ve got teammates who have moved away from families in South Korea and Argentina, but I have been away for over ten years now and I don’t get to see my mum that often. I am going to make it my priority before I retire to play football up there.”
However, due to injury Rose’s move north did not happen but now, Lazy Fan Sports can exclusively reveal that Manchester United are still interested in signing the England international.
Manchester United to revitalise Danny Rose’s career
When he initially made those comments about moving north, Manchester United was immediately rumoured to be Rose’s favoured destination due to the reliance on converted winger Ashley Young and a lack of opportunities for Luke Shaw.
Since the start of the summer, United have explored many different left-back options but they have only signed teenager Diogo Dalot who is unlikely to make an immediate impact on the first-team. Therefore, Mourinho is still in the market for a left-back with the versatile Matteo Darmian expected to leave and Mourinho prepared to let Shaw go, Rose may well be the option he turns to with the player clearly keen to make the move to Old Trafford.
A bid had been expected by now, but their interest is said to be cooling in Rose but if other potential signings such as Juventus’ Alex Sandro do not go through then the Rose deal will likely be back on for United.
