Former Arsenal star Ian Wright has blasted the behaviour of Tottenham defender Danny Rose and says that he expects him to leave the club in a £50million deal next summer.
The left back, who was ruled out of action for over eight months after suffering serious ligament damage in his knee earlier this year, came under immense criticism from the Spurs faithful after giving an open and honest interview about his future plans in August.
He admitted to the Sun that he did not feel he or his team mates were receiving the wages they deserves, and confirmed that he would be looking to secure to a side up north in the future.
The England international has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United in recent times, and Wright says he expects manager Mauricio Pochettino to offload the 27-year-old to the Red Devils for a fee in the region of £50million, after threatening to disrupt the balance of power in the dressing room with his behaviour.
Heavily critical of the defender’s actions, Wright told The Monday Night Club on BBC Radio Five live (27/11, 19:30): “He’s nearly disrupted that dressing room.
“For the manager, that’s a nightmare. He (Pochettino) has got the hump with him, that’s blatantly obvious.
If Man United can kick into that form and they need that extra thrust in January, it’s something that I think Mauricio Pochettino would look at that.
“If Kyle’s (Walker) gone for £50million then he’s got to be in and around that money.”

Rose has found himself in and out of the first team squad under Pochettino after returning from his layoff, with four appearances under his belt, although he has been left out entirely of the last two league squads against Arsenal and West Brom.
