Former Spurs Boss Expects Danny Rose to Be Swapped for Manchester United Full-Back in January

Publish date:

Tim Sherwood insists that Luke Shaw and Danny Rose will be switching clubs in the near future. The former Tottenham boss spoke on Sky Sports about the potential of a straight switch for the two full-backs.

United secured all three points, at Old Trafford, against the North London club last Saturday with a late strike by French winger Anthony Martial to give United a 1-0 win.


Only days before the game, Luke Shaw had expressed his desire to, once again, work with former boss Pochettino as reported by Sky Sports.

Luke Shaw has not only admitted his desire to play under Pochettino again but went further by claiming that the Tottenham boss would refer to him as 'son' during their time together at Southampton.


It is important to note that the young Englishman's relationship with Pochettino in Southampton was an integral part of his development, which saw him earn a move to Old Trafford back in 2014.

Since arriving at United, however, Shaw's career has not reached the heights that everyone had initially expected. Contrarily, the left-back has struggled for form or fitness and has often come under scrutiny from both the media and manager, Jose Mourinho.

With that being said, ex-Tottenham boss Sherwood insists that a move to Spurs will be a serious possibility as Shaw looks to get his young career back on track.

Sherwood believes that the move sending Shaw to London, with Danny Rose in exchange, is inevitable with the players more than likely to swap places by the end of January. Although, Spurs may look for added money to the deal, to ensure that they get a suitable return for Danny Rose.

Sherwood also claimed: “I think in the left-back area, Blind has been more of a regular. It’s the position where Mourinho is most unsure. They might as well do the swap now. Shaw is loved by Mauricio Pochettino. Danny [Rose] is loved by Mourinho. Just do the swap now and get it over and done with,” 

Both teams will be looking to bolster their squads as the Premier League chase heats up, as City seemingly have a stronghold with a five point cushion over United.
