Aside from Kyle Walker joining Manchester City, Tottenham have done well to hold onto their key players this summer.
Last season's second-placed finish prompted suggestions that the likes of Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, and Hugo Lloris might seek new challenges elsewhere, but on the whole, the club's star men seem to be buying into Mauricio Pochettino's project.
The only man that doesn't seem to apply to is Danny Rose.
The left-back turned Spurs' preparations for the new campaign upside down with his interview in the Sun just three days before their opener against Newcastle United.
Taking aim at their wage structure, lack of signings, and failure to win silverware, the England international burnt a lot of bridges by speaking out.
It remains to be seen whether he has a future in north London.
When the question was put to Pochettino in last week's press conference, he responded:
"I forgive him and now we move on. Of course [he has a future at Tottenham]. Nothing has changed in my vision or perception here."
Rose is in demand
As the 27-year-old has been ruled out with a knee injury since January, he is unable for selection until the end of August regardless.
The Sun are now reporting that if Spurs do intend to keep him, they will have to brace themselves for an offer before then, as Chelsea are plotting a bid.
It's thought Rose is valued at around £50million and the Blues could make their move once they have played Pochettino's men at Wembley on Sunday.
In the mean time, Antonio Conte has enough on his plate as he attempts to field a team without the suspended Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas.
One of the more endearing claims Rose made in the interview was that he was keen to move back up north to be near to his mum.
That may have been said amid speculation linking him with Manchester United, as Chelsea is not particularly near Yorkshire.
Regardless of his next destination, it's now a definite possibility that Rose will no longer be a Spurs player on September 1st.
