Jose Mourinho could be tempted to offer Luke Shaw as part of a deal to sign Danny Rose from Tottenham, according to reports.
Rose disgraced himself during the final weeks of the transfer window by expressing his desire to be paid more and move further north.
That immediately led to rumours that Manchester United would be Rose’s most likely next destination, given their own issues in that area. Shaw has struggled with injuries ever since joining for £30m from Southampton.
The Daily Mirror report that Shaw has half a season to save his United career, with Mourinho already looking around for his next option.
They say that Mourinho is interested in Kieran Tierney and Ryan Sessegnon to replace Shaw as United’s long-term left-back, but that he could also pursue a deal which would see Shaw offered to Tottenham.
Is that a rare deal that would work for every party? United need a left-back, Rose wants a big move, Shaw would get first-team football at a big club and Mauricio Pochettino knows Shaw from Southampton. Get it done.
