Speaking on The Lockdown Tactics podcast (h/t Metro), Rose said:

“I remember we played Hull at White Hart Lane [in December 2016] and we won 3-0. Mauricio was manager and the gaffer was all over Harry [Maguire]. I think they [Tottenham] were in for him.”

However, a move never materialized. Instead, Maguire joined Leicester City in 2017 and enjoyed two fruitful seasons before Manchester United signed him last summer in a world-record £80m transfer.

Rose’s revelation about Pochettino’s admiration of the Manchester United star brought out a lot of reactions from the Tottenham faithful. They took to Twitter to express their thoughts on the matter.
