Tottenham defender Danny Rose has attracted fresh interest from Manchester United and Inter Milan, according to a recent report.

Mauricio Pochettino has a solid option in Ben Davies, and just like how Spurs sold Kyle Walker to Manchester City, owing to the fact that Kieran Trippier was capable of stepping up, United might be able to convince Daniel Levy to let go of Rose.

Rose missed the second half of last season with a knee injury, but is on his way to a full return.

United have Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian and Luke Shaw to play at left-back but none of them are said to be Mourinho's first choice and he could look to make a move for Rose in January.

Tottenham Hotspur have not yet signed any players this summer.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has dropped a major hint he is set to join Liverpool after the England global liked an Instagram post suggesting he was heading for a £28m Anfield switch.

Rafa Benitez has warned Newcastle to sign a striker before the transfer window shuts or face the consequences.

The report states that United have turned their attention to Rose with deals for Ivan Perisic and even Gareth Bale (something Jose Mourinho has been talking about at length ahead of the UEFA Super Cup against Real Madrid) seeming increasingly unlikely.

Jose Mourinho is set for a collision course with Manchester United chiefs over plans for a pre-season tour of China.

Finally, The Star claims to have inside knowledge on a consortium led by former Arsenal and England skipper Tony Adams which wants to buy Crystal Palace for £200m.
