Man United pull plug on deal for £50 million defender

Manchester United have pulled out of the running to sign Spurs left-back Danny Rose, who is rated at £50 million.

According to a report in the Mirror Jose Mourinho has told his clubs CEO Ed Woodward that he is no longer interested in signing the England defender. The Portuguese coach is said to be happy with having Ashley Young and Luke Shaw as his options at left full and will instead look to sign another attacker.

Rose has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford since last summer, and even admitted that he would like to move North to be close to his family who hail from Doncaster.

This news will come as a major blow to the 27-year-old, who has had a torrid time of things over the last year. He has lost his position in Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs side due to a combination of injury problems and being frozen out after he gave a controversial interview last summer criticising the London clubs strict wage structure.

He has also recently revealed he has been suffering with depression, and his family have have to suffer from violence and racism.

Rose is currently preparing for the World Cup with England, where he will ironically be competing against Man United’s first choice left-back for a starting berth in Gareth Southgate side.
