Manchester United to step up pursuit of Tottenham star

Manchester United are understood to be ready to step up their pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur’s Danny Rose.

The Red Devils have been tracking the full-back for some time and see January as the time to make their move.

Rose has spoken of his desire to leave Spurs, in favour of a bigger contract and a greater chance of winning trophies.

January move

Manchester United are set to intensify their pursuit of Danny Rose in January.

Jose Mourinho believes that the 27-year-old could be a key part of their push for the Premier League title.

Manchester United have been keeping tabs on the left-back for several years now.

The Red Devils are now ready to test Tottenham’s resolve.

Shaw replacement

The idea of bringing in Rose is to replace current left-back Luke Shaw.

Although, the former Saints defender is yet to make a league appearance for  Mourinho’s side this season.

Ashley Young has taken his place in the side and the 22-year-old is hoping to end his Old Trafford nightmare as soon as possible.

Shaw’s main struggle has been dealing with injuries, with the England international making just 32 league appearances in four seasons.

Dealing with Daniel

Should United hope bring Rose to Old Trafford, they must deal with Daniel Levy.

The Tottenham chairman is notorious for being the league’s best negotiator and negotiating a reasonable deal will prove near enough impossible.

Levy is believed to be unwilling to sell to Manchester United, which would be considered as strengthening a rival.

Davies’ deputy

Rose made his return from injury against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu, helping to see out a 1-1 draw.

The player had been sidelined since January of this year after picking up a knee injury.

In that time, Ben Davies stepped up to the mark and stole his place in the starting eleven.

Only last season, he was considered to be the league’s best left-back but is now having to work to win back his spot.

The Welshman has been sensational in Rose’ absence earning many plaudits amongst the Tottenham faithful.
