According to the reports, Manchester United will get Danny Rose in January — if they meet the player’s £50m valuation.
Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino is understood to have ordered his scouts to start the hunt for a replacement left-back after deciding he’ll cut 27-year-old England international.
The hard-line Argentinian only wants players who are fully committed to the Tottenham cause and he believes Yorkshire-born Rose wants to move back north.
The same scenario developed last season with Sheffield-born Kyle Walker, who eventually completed his move to Manchester City last summer in a £50m transfer deal.
That is the same kind of figure Spurs chairman Daniel Levy wants for 27-year-old Rose. The left-back who earns around £65,000-per-week, angered Mauricio Pochettino with his outburst earlier this season claiming he was under-paid.
He blasted: “I am reaching my peak and have probably only got one big contract left in.
“I’m not saying I want out, but if something came to me that was concrete, I’d have no qualms about voicing my opinions to anyone at the club.”
That was seen by Pochettino as a clear “come and get me” plea to United who have been tracking Rose for over a year.
