Chelsea are still eager to bring in at least two new players before next week’s transfer deadline and Danny Rose remains one of the club’s top target amid interest from Manchester United in the Tottenham star.
Rose gave an eye-opening interview earlier this summer regarding the club and how much they pay their players, hinting that he would be open to leaving Tottenham if a good offer came in, inviting interest from the likes of Chelsea and United.
In response, Daniel Levy will meet with Rose’s agent tomorrow to discuss the player’s future and a potential transfer, say the Independent.
Rose’s future at Spurs has been uncertain ever since he publicly criticised the club’s wage structure and transfer policy in a newspaper interview earlier this month. Manchester United and Chelsea are both interested in signing Rose, and he is certainly open to a lucrative move away from Tottenham.
So far there have been no official bids for Rose as Spurs have refused to countenance a move. But the club will make their position clear when they meets with Rose’s representatives on Wednesday. This will determine whether there is still enough time this window for Rose to move away or whether he will be at Tottenham for the rest of the season.
If Rose were to move in the final days of the window Tottenham would demand at least as much money as they received from Manchester City for Kyle Walker: an initial £50m with another £4m in add-ons.
If Tottenham were to sell Rose, they are going to be demanding at least what they received for Kyle Walker when the sold the England international to Manchester City earlier this summer: £50m with a further £4m in add-ons.
Rose, 27, is currently sidelined with an injury after missing a lot of last season but is expected to return in the near future.
Chelsea do want a fullback before the window closes but will need to stump up a huge fee if they are to beat Manchester United to Rose’s signature.
