Cash Plus Player If Manchester United Want To Sign Tottenham Man
Manchester United will have to pay at least £40million PLUS left-back Luke Shaw if they want to sign Danny Rose from Tottenham Hotspur. The England international is believed to be a target for United this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to bring in defensive reinforcements.
Tottenham value Rose in excess of £50million and Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino isn’t open to a move away from north London for the 27-year-old. But they have been linked with Shaw as a possible replacement and a deal could be done involving the two players moving in opposite directions.
Rose was castigated by Spurs last summer after publicly criticising the club’s transfer policy. He demanded the club sign players that “you don’t have to Google”. He also hinted that he might be open to a move back to the north of England later in his career. That has led to speculation over a move to Manchester United.
Spurs sold Kyle Walker to Manchester City last summer for a fee of £45million plus £5million in add-ons. They would demand the same for Rose despite first-team opportunities being limited. A knee injury picked up last season left him out of contention for a place in the side until the middle of October. Since then he has made just 14 appearance for Tottenham with half of those coming in domestic cup matches and Champions League games.
Shaw’s Manchester United future has been on shaky ground ever since Jose Mourinho arrived at the club two summers ago. He looked set to be offered a new contract after forcing his way back into the United first team. But a training-ground bust-up with Mourinho before the FA Cup quarter-final victory over Brighton and Hove Albion has seen him restricted to just one appearance in that time: last week’s 2-0 victory over Bournemouth.
