Man Utd revive bid for Tottenham fullback Danny Rose

"If the conviction is upheld it remains to be seen whether it affects his chances of playing in England but Chelsea are believed to have now joined United in considering a move for him", the piece continued.

Tottenham will insist Danny Rose is not for sale to those interested in the left-back, including Manchester United.

But he is expected to be back to full fitness by the end of August which will make him ripe for a potential bid before the transfer window shuts.

Manchester United are targeting Danny Rose of Tottenham as Jose Mourinho wants more options down the left.

Speaking to the club website after signing a new contract, Rose said: "I'm settled here".

However, now that he is in line to return, the Red Devils have revived their interest in signing the coveted full-back.

Rose has been on the sidelines following a knee injury sustained earlier in the year. The manager also has Ashley Young, who has impressed whenever called upon in the rather unfamiliar role.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, another North Londoner not heading for the Potteries despite one recent report, is clearly in a mischievous mood. How people think Rose is the best LB in the prem is beyond me.

The Italian has admitted a deal for Brazilian Sandro is looking increasingly unlikely with Juventus refusing to sell their £60million-rated defender. Rose would be a potent addition and would boost the Home Grown quota for the club as well.

That's concerned some of the fans, given that they will competing in the Champions League this season, but the decision to keep hold of Rose in the face of interest from two of their Premier League rivals will be a boost to the faithful.
