Danny Rose wanted by Manchester United

Manchester United have watched Tottenham left-back Danny Rose on four occasions, according to Steve Bates of the Sunday People.

The report claims that the Red Devils see Rose as the ideal replacement for the injured Luke Shaw. 

Shaw's not the only United defender on the sidelines, however; Argentine international Marcos Rojo and versatile ace Ashley Young are also out of action.

The addition of Rose, then, would give Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal extra options at the back as he goes in search of securing a place in the Premier League's top four

But it appears that Spurs aren't ready to sell to their rivals. In fact, the same report claims that Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino doesn't want to sell another one of his players in this transfer window. 

Not ready to sell

Unsurprisingly, it appears that the White Hart Lane outfit aren't keen on selling to a direct rival - United currently sit one place behind Spurs in the Premier League table - so it appears that it's going to be tricky for the Red Devils hierarchy to land the full-back. 

But is he really good enough for United? 

Rose certainly has qualities; he may not be the best left-back in the league, but he's a fine outlet when roaming forward. 

The full-back would most definitely add pace to the United team - Van Gaal's side have been lackluster time-and-time again this term - so the signing of Rose would improve the Old Trafford outfit at this stage.
