Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly made up plans to strengthen his full-back positions during the summer with Tottenham’s Danny Rose believed to be on his radar.
The England international who the Daily Star claimed is earning £65,000-a-week at Tottenham has had a tough time with the North London club ever since his public criticism over the club’s poor transfer policy and he has been playing in Ben Davies shadows for most of the season.
As such, there’ve been reports over him pursuing a fresh challenge and according to The Guardian, the 27-year-old could be the subject of an approach from United during the summer.
Ashley Young has done a more than credible job on the left side of the backline this campaign but there is still the concern over his age (32) which may hamper his chances of earning a long-term contract.
As a result, the Portuguese tactician appears keen on having Rose on-board for the upcoming season and beyond, though his arrival may coincide with the exits of Luke Shaw, Matteo Darmian and Daley Blind – all of whom have failed to impress the manager.
Meanwhile, Mourinho is also understood to be keen on finding a competitor for the right-back position with Antonio Valencia having likewise entered the twilight of his professional career.
