Tottenham Hotspur's Danny Rose 'would turn down Chelsea for Manchester United'

Tottenham Hotspur's Danny Rose 'would turn down Chelsea for Manchester United'

Danny Rose, in true Helena of Troy fashion, has sparked a battle between Manchester United and Chelsea to acquire the England left back's signature.

Starsport can reveal Rose has set his heart on leaving Tottenham for Old Trafford ahead of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

The England global caused a storm earlier in the summer when criticising the club's transfer policy and wage structure, but immediately received the backing of Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino who insisted the player remained in his plans.

Both full-back Rose and winger Lamela have had a frustrating time with injuries over the previous year and Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has been forced to make do without the pair.

It is the first time that Rose has appeared in full training since a controversial close-season in which he criticised Spurs' transfer policy and claimed to be underpaid - comments that resulted in a club fine.

The findings are contained in the first comprehensive report on the crisis in Myanmar's Rakhine State by the U.N. It says it is fighting a legitimate campaign against Rohingya "terrorists".

Rose's arrival is likely to mean the end of Luke Shaw's career at Old Trafford and United are likely to cash in on the former Southampton man - who will have 12 months left on his contract by that point.

The likes of Ashley Young, Matteo Darmian, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind have all filled in at left-back.

Mourinho has had a problem in the left-back position since he took charge and reckons Rose is the ideal solution.

But Mourinho knows the addition of Rose, with his lightening speed and attacking threat going forward, would be a huge asset to his side.
