Tottenham Hotspur have rejected a £47m offer from Manchester City for Danny Rose.
The left back was one of the club’s standout performers last year as Spurs had their highest ever Premier League finish, finishing second behind eventual Champions Chelsea.
City have had a bid accepted by for fellow England and Tottenham full back Kyle Walker, but according to the London Evening Standard, during those negotiations Manchester City also lodged a £47m offer for Danny Rose.
The left-back has been on City’s radar for a number of months, and despite the 27-year-old not featuring since late January due to a knee injury, and still not being fully fit, the Manchester club made their move.
This bid was rejected outright by Spurs officials who are unwilling to do further business with the Blues, who are now closing in on a deal for Monaco’s Benjamin Mendy.
Rose is claimed to be open to a move away from the club, but the chances of Spurs being willing to lose both of their full backs in the same summer is remote at best.
