Transfer News: Manchester United reportedly keen on signing top English defender

Manchester United are desperate to bring an end to their left-back conundrum and view Danny Rose as their solution.


With the transfer window set to reopen in one month time, in January, Premier League giants Manchester United are hoping to bring in English defender Danny Rose from Tottenham Hotspur.

According to Manchester United evening news, the Red Devils’ chances of bringing in Rose from Spurs have received a major boost after Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino decided to drop Rose from the starting XI for the second game in a row in the Premier League.

After being dropped to the bench for the North London derby; Rose said that he was “fuming” as he once again failed to break into the Spurs starting line up, this time against West Bromwich Albion, on this past Saturday.

It has also been reported by The Evening News that Rose has always had the thirst to return to the North of England, as United continue to monitor the 27-year-old defender.

Meanwhile, on the other hand, United’s biggest rivals Manchester City are also apparently monitoring Danny Rose’s Spurs situation and could go head-to-head with Jose Mourinho’s side in order to bring in the England international.

Entering into 2017, Rose was the best English left-back in the entire Premier League, however, a knee injury kept him out of action for months. While he was sidelined Pochettino also started to lose faith in his left-back, as Rose found himself being dropped out off the first XI.

If Rose does not manage to secure a new move by January, then his 2018 FIFA World Cup hopes could also be in huge jeopardy and he might even be dropped out of the Three Lions squad for Russia next year.

However, if Manchester United does manage to bring in the Spurs defender in 2018, then his [Rose] chances of making it to the FIFA World Cup will relatively improve, as United might go ahead and decide to sell Luke Shaw who has appeared only twice for the 20-time Premier League Champions this season.

Shaw has only made two substitute appearances for Mourinho’s team this season, in the Carabao Cup and could be sent to St. James Park for a loan stint with Newcastle United.
