England International Danny Rose has confirmed that he would be interested in leaving Tottenham should the Club allow him to.
Sky Sports also understand that Rose would like to leave this summer, but only for Manchester United or the Premier League Champions Chelsea.
But allegedly, United are not chasing the left back and Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol has confirmed live on the Transfer Centre that he is not a player that is on the Clubs radar, according to sources.
This leaves the door wide open for Chelsea to go all out for the 27-year old, who covers all angels in the perfect top target that they have been chasing all summer.
Manager Antonio Conte wants players who are home grown to match the FA quota rules and they are also seeking a left wing back to offer competition to Marcos Alonso. Rose would certainly be seen as an upgrade here.
Tottenham though are notoriously impossible for Chelsea to deal with. Owner Daniel Levy is always reluctant to sell to his London rivals, as we remember back to the Luka Modric saga not so long ago.
Rose is yet to hand in a transfer request to the Club, although his public comments are arguably worse. It’s clear he wants to leave the Club and if he decides to push through a deal, Spurs might consider selling.
They’ve already let Kyle Walker join Manchester City this summer so they can be tempted. But to Chelsea? Seems unlikely at the minute. But the Blues simply must at the very least launch an enquiry, even if they are priced out of any deal. If Walker was £50m, how much would Rose be? But never say never….
