Tottenham defender Danny Rose is being lined up for a transfer swoop by a trio of European giants, according to a report.
The Sun claim in their print edition (12/11, Page 62) that the 27-year-old is eyed by Juventus, Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain for a move as they all believe he could be tempted to make a move overseas.
Contracted with the north London side until 2021, Rose admitted in an honest interview with the Sun earlier this year that he feels that he has “one big contract left” in him, and it appears as though a move abroad could be on the cards for the 13-time-capped England international.
He has recently recovered from a serious injury layoff which had kept him out of action since January, and has made three appearances for Spurs this season, two of which have come in the starting XI.
Football Insider verdict
Danny Rose’s future is something which will always be in doubt following his candid interview with the Sun, but Mauricio Pochettino appears to have reintegrated him back into the first team set up – for now. When clubs like Real Madrid and PSG come calling, it can be very difficult for the player to resist temptation, and with the money that these heavyweights can offer both the star and the selling club, Spurs might struggle to turn down a deal too. Thankfully, they have a more than adequate replacement in the shape of Ben Davies, who has really grown in Rose’s absence, and really there should be no guarantee that the England international has a starting place lined up week in, week out under Pochettino now.
