Tottenham Hotspur's Danny Rose 'would turn down Chelsea for Manchester United'


Danny Rose and Erik Lamela have returned to Tottenham training ahead of their next Premier League clash against Bournemouth.

Rose is still recovering from a serious knee ligament injury that he sustained at the start of 2017 but he's expected to be back playing again next month so he'll be fully-fit in time for the winter window.

Perhaps more significantly Spurs have also continued to thrive despite Rose being sidelined, with Ben Davies deputising impressively at left-back and left wing-back. Spurs will not want to lose Rose, but they have a ready-made replacement in Ben Davies, who is only a notch or two below the England worldwide in an attacking sense, and offers greater reliability in defence.

The Argentina international's hip issue has prevented him from featuring in any of Tottenham's last 57 games in all competitions, with his lengthy spell with the medical team going all the way back to October 2016.

Danny Rose and @ErikLamela train with the rest of the team at Hotspur Way today as they continue to progress with their rehabilitation.

Lamela has not played for Tottenham for nearly a year because of hip problems and even spent time at former club Roma as he attempted to overcome his injuries before undergoing surgery.

Doncaster-born Rose, who joined Spurs as a teenager in 2007, has made it clear that he intends to return to the north of England before he retires.

The Daily Star claim United are confident of landing the England worldwide for £45million next summer and that the player has his heart set on the move going through ahead of the World Cup in June.
