Plans scrapped to take Spurs star to Man Utd, with other positions taking priority

Danny Rose doesn’t look set to be leaving Tottenham Hotspur anytime soon, as Manchester United reportedly scrapped plans to add another full-back to their ranks.

Rose was allegedly hoping to move to Old Trafford after the World Cup, but a transfer no longer looks to be on the cards.

Jose Mourinho has already brought 19-year-old Diogo Dalot in from FC Porto for £17.4 million and it was expected that another full-back would follow suit, with Juventus and Brazil left-back Alex Sandro strongly linked.

Monaco defender Djibril Sidibe was another name mentioned.

Reported by the Telegraph, Mourinho has now told Ed Woodward that other positions are a great priority, with a new centre-back and a backup option to Romelu Lukaku topping the list.

This does not mean United’s interest in Rose cannot be reignited, with full-back options remaining rather limited despite Dalot’s arrival and we’re yet to see if the young Portuguese defender will get much game time with the first-team next season.

After all, Dalot made just eight first-team appearances for Porto last term. United is a massive step up.

Rose expressed a desire to leave Spurs last summer before decided to remain in north London.

It has been reported that Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has been considering a move for Fulham sensation Ryan Sessegnon, according to The Sun.
