Man Utd 'confident' of sealing £50m January transfer

Man Utd 'confident' of sealing £50m January transfer

Jose Mourinho has now set his eyes on Danny Rose thoughtfully, as he believes the English global will become Manchester United's next first-choice left back in a £50 million deal, reports Daily Mail.

The 27-year-old full-back is rumoured to be one of Jose Mourinho's top targets ahead of the January transfer window given Manchester United's lack of quality in the position. This means that the left-back could be all set to leave the north London outfit and will look to revive his career elsewhere, if a deal does go through.

Ex-Saints man Luke Shaw is being hardly considered by Mourinho at United, which leaves them with Ashley Young, who basically is an attacking player, at left-back.

But Rose is facing an uncertain future at Tottenham after being dropped for Tottenham's 2-1 loss to Leicester City mid-week following his criticism of Mauricio Pochettino's team selection.

This led to speculation linking him with a switch to United but Spurs refused to sell Rose after already losing Kyle Walker to Manchester City so the player ended up staying after issuing a public apology.

Former Arsenal striker Wright believes the Tottenham fans would support Pochettino's decision to sell Rose.

Spurs now deploy Welsh full-back Ben Davies in the first team, with former PSG ace Serge Aurier also considered a potential option as Kieran Trippier's left-sided counterpart.

The 27 year old England worldwide stirred controversy back in the summer transfer window, when he said in an interview that he was not happy with the club's transfer policy and wanted to play elsewhere.

The United boss greatly admires Carlos Soler of Valencia but it is now more likely any push for the 20-year-old will come at the end of the campaign, particularly given the Spanish side's fine campaign.
