Manchester United Slapped £50m Price-tag For Highly-rated £65,000-a-week English Star

Is Danny Rose going to be the next transfer target for Jose Mourinho? Well, if reports from the past couple of months are to be believed, the left-back is supposed to be a serious target with a high probability of joining the Red Devils.

Giving more impetus to the news and the transfer, latest reports reveal that Tottenham Hotspur have indicated their intent to cash in on their defender, provided they receive their asking fee of £50million.

The Mirror reports that Tottenham and Mauricio Pochettino have come to a decision on their England international defender, who is not entirely happy at the White Hart Lane right now.

Ever since he gave an interview in the summer, Rose’s intentions have come out in the open. The defender told in that interview about his intentions of winning trophies and of the potential of one final big-money move in his career.

Although the player was later made to apologise to the club, the fans, and the manager, the damage had already been done. Rose recently came back from his long-term injury, offering options to Pochettino, who has now decided to cash in on the player.

Is this good news for United? Shaw has been a question mark for United and Jose Mourinho. The left-back has failed to win over his manager although he seems to have become fitter in the recent months. Although the player is eagerly waiting for his turn to impress the gaffer, there seems to be a theory that United will go for a proven left-back.

That proven left-back could be the 27-year-old Rose, who earns £65,000-a-week. Though the price seems to be a little high, it will never be a problem for the Red Devils, provided the player is a part of Jose’s long-term plans. The report also speaks about Spurs’ inclination to find a replacement for Rose. With Ben Davies having made the position his own during Rose’s absence, Pochettino may as well sanction the England international’s departure.

Should United sign Rose? I have nothing against Rose but personally, I believe that Shaw should be given a chance to prove his worth. A run of five games should be a good sample to decide his long-term future. And if he continues to disappoint, the chance to sign Rose should be lapped up.

What’re your thoughts on this?

    He’s not happy at Spurs? More like Spurs aren’t happy with him!
    Either way, he’ll probably go (must have been so hard for him taking
    over £2m in wages whilst contributing nothing to our club since January,
    and then going to the press to moan about that and other things).
    We can forgive anything ..other than disloyalty and lack of effort.
    Can’t fault his effort upon his return, but the damage has been done.
    Shame with both him AND Walker ..because if playing together now (at
    their early to mid last season form) we’d at least be on parity with United
    now, despite the Wembley factor. Whether he goes to you guys
    depends on whether Shaw could be involved as part of the deal, whether
    you pay £50m outright, or whether Rose wakes up and and smells the er
    Roses, and realises that Spurs (despite this recent blip or ‘correction’ in the market) are a major club which, once again, are going places, and therefore pleads to stay.
    Oh yes, but the greed for more money, and the similar (aka Walker) desire
    to return north, will probably see him in the red next year.
