Barcelona are interested in signing Danny Rose and would be willing to include Jordi Alba in a deal for the Tottenham defender, according to reports in Spain.

Rose has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United since giving a controversial interview in which he appeared to criticise his current employers back in August.

Spanish outlet GOL claims Barcelona are also keen on the 27-year-old. Apparently, manager Ernesto Valverde is happy for Jordi Alba to be offered in part-exchange – Mauricio Pochettino is also thought to approve of a swap deal.

This smacks of speculative reporting to me, although I assume Spurs would prefer to sell Rose to a foreign club rather than a Premier League rival. For now, though, this one is very much just a rumour.



  1. Alba and Messi have a great chemistry between them which makes barca attack dangerous.Selling alba is a stupid decision.but Valdevere can buy Rose without swapping with Alba and that would be a better idea ?

  2. This report i understand is just to provoke interest for the Barça board to garner an insight. My most reverred Brazilian player ,(Rivaldo), was sold and it gutted me back then. I am now more experienced so my heart even though is on my sleeve (for Barça) i will read and be educated. Alba , though replaceable, is intrinsic to the fiber of rhis team . FORÇA BARÇA !

  3. Another ploy by the agents to stimulate the transfer market,don’t you people get it?more moves by players =more money in their pockets.

  4. I prefer the swap deal I don’t see any quality in Alba he peace me off when it comes to across a ball. Rose utilise the ball more than Alba

    • Comment:have you watched any Barcelona game this season?? Alba is having one of his best seasons at barca. Dany Rose has nothing on Alba

  5. This board board sucks! Why would I exchange someone who plays well with the a worse style of play and may not fit with Barca’s. Instead go look for weak positions and try to fill them out dummies!!
    Get ur midfield rolling with a world star player as well as replayce Saurez Saurez for Gods sake… Get Griezmann!!!

  6. OMg this shouldn’t be true Cus jordi is one of the best this season,,what can Rose offer.we sometimes make bad deals which I don’t Even understand,not this time again Barca
