Manchester United are confident of signing Danny Rose for £50 million, according to The Mail.

Journalist Sami Mokbel writes: “Jose Mourinho believes Danny Rose will be Manchester United’s next left back.”

Mourinho is apparently “increasingly confident” of signing the 27-year-old in January or next summer.

In August, Rose gave a controversial interview in which he appeared to criticise Tottenham’s transfer and wage policy.

Spurs held firm and didn’t sell him before the deadline, but doubts remain over the left-back’s long term future at the club.

I wouldn’t read too much into The Mail‘s story. I don’t expect Rose to leave in January, but given his situation these kind of stories will continue to do the rounds.
