Last month, reports suggested Manchester United’s hopes of signing Tottenham’s Danny Rose had been boosted — and now the Mail says Jose Mourinho “believes he will become United’s new first-choice left-back in a £50 million deal.”
It reports that the United manager “is increasingly confident of landing Rose either next month or during the summer.”
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino omitted Rose from his squad for the North London derby, sparking an angry reaction from the England defender.
And now the Mail says United — who had hoped to sign him in the summer — believe they can do so soon, although “agreeing a deal with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will be an arduous task.”
United are after a specialist left-back having been using Ashley Young in that position, with Luke Shaw struggling to find a way into Mourinho’s plans and tipped to leave on loan.
Meanwhile, the Independent reports that United are waiting to see what Schalke midfielder Leon Goretzka opts to do in January.
Goretzka, whose deal runs out at the end of the season, has said he will decide on his future soon and has been linked with Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus — but the Independent says there is “increasing speculation over a move to United.”
