Speaking to Football Insider, a Tottenham Hotspur source has revealed Daniel Levy’s multiple exit offers for Danny Rose with the club having tried to get him off the wage bill by buying out a significant portion of his contract – but the Englishman has snubbed the proposals and will leave this summer instead.
The left-back, who has been omitted by manager Jose Mourinho this season and left without a squad number, knocked back Levy’s proposals to terminate his deal early with negotiations grounding to a halt as he wanted his contract paid off in full.
Tottenham source reveals multiple Levy exit offers for Rose
Levy allegedly only offered to pay off a ‘significant portion‘ of his £70,000-per-week deal, with the 30-year-old now set to leave in the summer as a free agent instead when it properly expires.
Rose could have left in January as Football Insider also explain that he tried to secure a permanent move to Turkish Super Lig side Trabzonspor – and a long term offer was ‘on the table‘.
However, due to COVID-19 regulations, Trabzonspor pulled out at the eleventh hour – leaving Rose at Tottenham and giving Levy and co no choice but to seek other means of an early exit.
Transfer Tavern take
As these attempts are revealed, the Lilywhites chairman could be ruing the fact he couldn’t manage to find a permanent buyer for him.
Rose has been an amazing servant for the club down the years, but he’s certainly milked the chairman for all he can this season.
