Chelsea FC are all set to make a 50 million bid for Tottenham Hotspur star Danny Rose, hours after they play against them at Wembley on Sunday.
After his recent interview with SunSport, Rose has put Chelsea on red alert and The Blues believe that there is a chance that they might be able to bring the Spurs full back to Stamford Bridge.
SunSport also revealed that The Blues made Rose their primary left back target and their 50 million bid might actually interest Spurs in selling the English full back.
In his interview with SunSport, Rose criticized Spurs’ transfer and wage policies but Spurs have not indicated that they are keen on selling the player to Antonio Conte’s side. It has also been reported that Danny Rose is unhappy with the low wages he has been receiving compared to other players who are playing for the top six clubs in the league. The left back was also keen on winning trophies at White Hart Lane, but has failed to do so. Rose has been a Spurs player since 2007 but with multiple loan spells to various clubs all over England.
The 27 year old, who is still out of action following a knee surgery, is also a long term target of Chelsea’s close rivals Manchester United.
As far as Chelsea fans are concerned, they think that he would be an upgrade compared to current Blues left back Marcos Alonso. In fact, the boss personally has eyed Rose as a potential signing for the summer transfer window.
“At my age, and having missed six months with injury, I have been thinking about this quite a lot,” Rose has stated in this context. He also added that he has reached his peak and thinks he has one big contract left in him. Rose also said that he does not want to play football for 15 years and not have one trophy or a medal and is desperate to win a trophy.
However, after his controversial interview with SunSport, he later apologized for his comments and says that both him and the club have ‘moved on’ from the situation.
