Spurs Name Their Price For Manchester United To Sign Danny Rose
With three failing full backs in his squad it is no wonder that Jose Mourinho is targeting Danny Rose as a future transfer. Spurs won't want to see him go but they have named a price for the Englishman.
Jose Mourinho is getting the best out of Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia as full-backs right now and the two former wingers have both contributed important goals in recent games for their teams.
In an ideal world Jose Mourinho would probably not have to turn to the naturally more attacking players every time but with Luke Shaw, Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian clearly failing to live up to their manager's expectations he has little other choice.

So the full back department is unsurprisingly the area of the pitch that Mourinho is most desperate to strengthen in the next two transfer windows, will lots of reports believing Danny Rose is his preferred option.
Spurs won't want to lose their first choice left-back but according to the Mirror they have at least set a price for him. According to the Mirror the north London side would sell Rose for £50 million in January.

It's a very familiar situation for Spurs for a couple of reasons. United have history in signing, Michael Carrick and Dimitar Berbatov, or trying to sign, Luka Modric and Gareth Bale, Spurs best players.
On top of that it's a similar situation to the one Spurs found themselves in last year with Kyle Walker. The right back clearly wanted a big money move and he was allowed to leave once Manchester City stumped up the money.

Rose recently talked about wanting more money and a big pay-day saying, "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."
He had an injury earlier in the season but since recovering has often found Ben Davies prefered at left back. He may get that big pay-day in January.
