Danny Rose transfer: Jose Mourinho urges Manchester United board to make £50m signing from Spurs

England left-back has been sidelined with a new knee injury but United have been reassured that it is not the same problem that kept him out of action for nine months last season

Jose Mourinho is urging Manchester United to table a bid for Danny Rose — with the England defender having been assured his latest knee injury is not serious.

The United boss is desperate to land the Spurs left-back but knows he must persuade the board to offer at least £50million for his long-term target.

The left-back is not concerned that his latest problem is related to the injury to the same knee which kept him out for nine months last year.

Spurs are unlikely to allow Rose, 27, to leave in January but may be persuaded if United match their £50m valuation and if they can land their preferred replacement, Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon.


The Craven Cottage club believe their 17-year-old sensation wants to stay with them at least until the summer and they are under no financial pressure to sell their crown jewel.

A Spurs bid of £30m may be too good to resist — although Fulham would prefer the kid to be loaned back to them for the rest of the season as they aim for the Championship play-offs.

Some at Old Trafford are keen for United to bid for Sessegnon but Mourinho wants to go for the more experienced option of Rose.
