The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping their side can climb back into the top-four places during the second-half of the season.
Tottenham are yet to rediscover the form that led them to a second placed finish in the Premier League last season, but there have been signs in recent weeks that they are close to returning to their imperious best. At the beginning of the season, Mauricio Pochettino would have told his players that a title challenge was the target for the season. However, the season has not quite gone to plan for the Argentine manager thus far, so he will need to re-assess his objectives and focus on a top-four finish.
The Lilywhites will have to put together a solid run of results to achieve their new objective for the season, but they may have to do it without their marauding left-back Danny Rose, who remains a target for Manchester United, according to reports in The Sun.
According to the report, Mourinho has asked the United board for £50 million to bring Rose to Old Trafford this month, much to the concern of the Spurs fans propping up the bar here.
Speculation regarding Rose’s future has been ever-present in the British media since the England international publicly criticised his current employees last summer.
Despite the ongoing distraction regarding his future off the field, Tottenham will be desperate to keep hold of Rose this month, but they should at least be preparing for the possibility that he may leave the club.
With that being said, here are two full-backs who Tottenham should be monitoring whilst Rose’s future remains unclear.
