Manchester United could reportedly offer Tottenham Hotspur a player in exchange to get the Danny Rose deal over the line.
The M.E.N. reported United’s interest in Rose last month, and his recent interview calling on Spurs to make signings and show ambition has only increased the speculation, with the left back admitting he would be keen on a move north.
Rose has now released a statement in which he apologised for the “timing and manner” of his comments, but it is understood he stands by the sentiment of the interview and his stance on a possible move to United remains unchanged.
And the Daily Record reports that Jose Mourinho is open to a player swap in order to sweeten the deal with notoriously hard negotiator Daniel Levy.
England international Luke Shaw is said to be the player who could be offered to Spurs, in a straight left back swap.
The defender is currently sidelined with an injury but has returned to first team training.
He was criticised by Mourinho on a number of occasions last season, and has one year remaining on the contract he signed when moving from Southampton in 2014.
Meanwhile, the Sun claims that United are monitoring Stoke winger Ramadan Sobhi.
The Egyptian arrived at the Bet365 Stadium 12 months’ ago, and made 18 appearances for the Potters last season.
Mourinho was said to have watched his performances closely, but Sobhi has now signed a new five year contract at Stoke.
