Manchester United have been in search of a left back for quite some time and a few quality stars are in the lime light.
Yesterday, we covered a report (via TuttoSport) claiming that Mourinho is ready to pay the release clause of Napoli star Faouzi Ghoulam next summer.
As far as the winter transfer window is concerned, reports are once again linking United with Tottenham star Danny Rose.
According to Mirror, Jose Mourinho wants to snap up the 27-year-old England international, who could be available for a fee worth 50 million pounds ($68million).
However, the British source claim that Ed Woodward has told the Portuguese boss that he cannot lure Rose.
The former Chelsea boss is said to be angry with the fact that Man United vice-chairman has recommended younger alternatives and claimed that the club would have to offload players if they are to sign Danny.
If that is the case then United should sell bench warmers like Shaw and Darmian and get the necessary funds to sign the Spurs star. Rose has mainly been injured this season but when fit, he is one of the best full-backs in the country, who has the quality to largely improve Mourinho’s back line.
