Tottenham defender Danny Rose is no longer on Barcelona’s list of left-back targets, according to reports in Spain.
Rose returned to the Spurs squad for the Audi Cup victories over Real Madrid and Bayern Munich this week after failing to secure a transfer to another club. He had been excused from the tour of Asia to sort out his future.
The England international has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona, but reports suggest he could stay at Tottenham after returning to training with the first team.
Spanish outlet Sport (via Sport Witness) claims Barcelona are looking for a new left-back to provide competition for Jordi Alba. Their report suggests Rose had been explored as a possible signing, but the La Liga giants have now apparently ended their interest in the 29-year-old.
If other reports are to be believed, Spurs are set to sign a long-term replacement for Rose in the form of Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon. It is understood the Londoners will sign Sessegnon regardless of whether Rose stays or leaves.
What we do know is that it’s very unlikely Rose will be heading to Barcelona.
