Tottenham Ready To Do Business With Man Utd Over Proposed £40m Deal
Tottenham are willing to sell Danny Rose to Manchester United this summer if they agree to pay £40m and offer Luke Shaw as part exchange
The transfer window is closed but managers are working hard on their plans for the summer so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, the latest on Danny Rose…
Tottenham are willing to sell Danny Rose to Manchester United this summer if they agree to pay £40m and offer Luke Shaw as part exchange, according to a report by TeamTalk.
Rose has been tipped to leave Spurs after struggling to force his way back in to Mauricio Pochettino’s starting eleven since returning from a serious knee injury at the turn of the year.
The 27-year-old’s future was cast in doubt last summer after he conducted a controversial interview where he questioned Tottenham’s transfer policy and suggested he wanted to move back up north to be closer to his family.
United have been linked with a move for Rose over the past 12 months and the Guardian reported earlier this week that Jose Mourinho has made the left-back a prime summer transfer target.
Mourinho is in the market for a long-term replacement for Ashley Young – who turns 33 in July – and Rose is seemingly on his radar but United are aware that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is known to be a tough negotiator.
And it seems Levy is living up to his reputation as the Sun, via TeamTalk, claim Tottenham have told United they are prepared to do business for Rose if they pay £40m AND offer Shaw as part of the deal.
Shaw has fallen out-of-favour under Mourinho this season and has struggled for regular game-time so the England international is expected to push for a move away from Old Trafford.
The report says United are willing to listen to offers for the 22-year-old but they want to recoup the £28m they paid Southampton for his signature in 2014.
Therefore, if they agreed to pay Tottenham £40m as well as offer Shaw that would value Rose at around £68m – which even in today’s market is extortionate – so I’d be surprised if United agreed to meet those demands.
We’ll have to wait and see how things develop but I wouldn’t be surprised to see Rose join United in the end and Shaw would be a decent replacement if Tottenham could lure him to north London as part of the deal.
