Jose Mourinho has made three key signings at Manchester United this season, as he looks to fill the holes within the Red Devils squad. The self-proclaimed Special One has added a hard-man in midfield, a prolific striker and a centre-half, but you just feel they are still one short.
The left-side of the team definitely needs some sort of work. One of the names linked with an Old Trafford switch is Tottenham Hotspur man, Danny Rose.
Now, ahead of Manchester United’s season opener against West Ham United, Mourinho has responded to the rumours linking Rose with a move. As you’d expect, he went about it diplomatically, but was pretty adamant that he had nothing to do with ‘that interview’.
“I should not comment because Mauricio [Pochettino] would not be happy if I comment,” he said, as per the Daily Express.
“Mr [Daniel] Levy would not be happy if I comment and because I had nothing to do with that interview.”
“I just read it the way you did, I just read but Danny Rose is a Spurs player and it is not my problem at all.”
The left-back area is such a key part of the field in the modern game. Right now, our first choice is Matteo Darmian who is predominantly a right-back. Then you have Luke Shaw who cannot keep himself fit which is another obvious concern for the United coaches.
Rose would certainly fix an awful lot of problems, but I just have my doubts about whether Spurs would let him leave – particularly to another Premier League side.
