With the season more or less done, the transfer rumours are getting crazier by the day. The latest rumour comes from the Sun which claims that three Tottenham players want to leave the club in the summer.
We do know that Kyle Walker’s situation at the club isn’t clearing up and he could be off to either United or Manchester City but the report claims that even Danny Rose and Eric Dier want to leave. Dier is said to be interested in the offer, while Rose is prepared to wait until his knee surgery for a move.
The trio reportedly have been turned by the money being dumped on them by Manchester United despite becoming integral parts of the team that finished second in the Premier League and is better placed than the Red Devils. It further adds that the Manchester club will double the wages of the players and raise it to £130,000-a-week.
Signing one player from Tottenham will be hard enough in the summer but bringing in all three will be extremely tough and unrealistic, to be honest. The trio have played some of their best football in years and moving away from the Lilywhites could turn out to be a recipe for disaster, especially at a club that isn’t actually doing all that well.
Manchester United might have a tonne of money to spend in the summer but they don’t have the team chemistry that Poch has built at Spurs. There is no guarantee that Jose Mourinho’s men will be playing Champions League football next season too and it does feel a little out of place for the trio to move to a team that is struggling to move in the right direction.
Mourinho might be looking at Dier and Rose as replacements for old boy Michael Carrick and Luke Shaw but it would be hard to believe that Poch or Daniel Levy will let either of them to go.
Manchester United might throw all the money they have but we probably won’t let any of our players go to the Red Devils unless they bid Paul Pogba-esque money.
