As per a report from the Sun, French giants Paris Saint-Germain are set to keep a close eye on Danny Rose’s Newcastle stint, ahead of a potential swoop for the full-back in the summer.
Rose joins Newcastle
On the back of weeks of speculation, English stopper Rose’s move to St. James’ Park was made official on deadline day last week.
The transfer made sense for all parties involved, with Newcastle having been on the lookout for reinforcements at left-back following the long-term injury picked up by Jetro Willems, and Rose majorly struggling for game-time at Spurs.
On the back of Jose Mourinho replacing Mauricio Pochettino on the club’s bench at the end of November, the 29-year-old had managed just a solitary Premier League start.
As a result, Rose put pen-to-paper on an agreement with Steve Bruce’s Magpies for the remainder of the campaign:
United have once again smashed the club’s transfer record to secure the services of a highly-rated Norwegian international midfielder on a long-term contract.
Sander Berge has penned a four-and-a-half-year deal at Bramall Lane. An undisclosed fee has been agreed ✍️

Crucially, however, it has since been widely-reported that Newcastle’s deal for Rose does not include either an option or obligation to buy.
This of course opens the door for all other interested parties to step forward for the English international in the summer.
And, as per the aforementioned report from the Sun, one such club ready to do so are Ligue 1 champions PSG.
In a surprise story, it is claimed that the capital giants are set to keep a close eye on Rose’s spell at St. James’ over the coming months.
This comes with PSG readying a potential offer for the stopper in the summer.
Layvin Kurzawa will depart the Parc des Princes come the end of the campaign, upon the expiration of his contract.
As such, Thomas Tuchel’s squad will require reinforcements at left-back, to keep first-choice Juan Bernat on his toes.
And Rose is reportedly viewed as a prime target to fill this role.
