The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are well accustomed to reports linking their star players away from the club.
Tottenham have already seen Kyle Walker depart the club to Manchester City this summer, and losing another England international to a title-rival would certainly dampen their aspirations for silverware this season.
Rose has been sidelined since January with a knee injury, however, Welshman Ben Davies has stepped in to deliver a string of well-rounded performances in Rose’s absence.
Davies’ consistency has not gone unnoticed by manager Mauricio Pochetino, who recently labelled him “one of the best full-backs in the Premier League”.
Rose’s criticism of the financial structure of the club in August has tarnished his reputation amongst the Spurs faithful, and as a result many appear willing to cash in on him during the January window, for the right price.
However, once Rose returns to full-fitness, the fans might just have a change of heart when he reminds them what they’ve been missing.
Here’s how fans on Twitter have reacted so far…
I said it in August. I’m afraid that’s the last we’ve seen of Danny Rose in a Spurs shirt.
You don’t mess with Pochettino.

Danny Rose is gonna find it hard to get back in the starting 11 once he's fit. Ben Davies has been great this season #thfc

If we sell Danny Rose to another PL club we have to demand as much as possible. 50mil minimum
If the rumors are true, we’d be stupid to sell Danny Rose to United. All you Spurs fans saying “oh we have Davies” are deluded.

I think we have seen the last of Danny Rose in a Spurs shirt, been injured for 10 months and wants a pay rise…. bye bye

I want to win things. Therefore we need our best players. Rose is definitely one of them.
