Danny Rose, Tottenham Hotspur’s longest tenured first team player, didn’t even receive a number this fall. His previous number 3 shirt was given to new left back signing Sergio Reguilon. He has reportedly been training with the U23s, his contract expires in June, and he is almost certainly leaving the club at some point after falling out with Jose Mourinho.
But it might not be today! The Athletic (£) is reporting that Rose is “relaxed” about his future, and seems fine with the possibility of potentially leaving in January if a last minute buyer can’t be found for him today. That may be the case, since it seems like most credible links for Rose dried up a couple of weeks ago. There’s also the chance that he may just see out the rest of his contract and leave on a free next June.
I know that Rose is a divisive figure among the Tottenham fanbase due to [waves hands at everything] but I love the guy and just think it’s sad that it’s come to this for a guy who gave us one of the most memorable moments in Tottenham history on his Premier League debut. I wish it were different, but instead it seems more likely that we’re going to shove Rose in the doghouse and pretend he’s not there until he’s able to walk away.
In that same report, The Athletic notes that keeper Paulo Gazzaniga could also leave on loan today (but that the reports of him replacing Adrian at Liverpool are lol not happening), and that Cameron Carter-Vickers could also be sold.
Update: Maybe there’s a late loan to Porto in the works? That’d be weird... but okay.
Some late interest in loaning Tottenham's Danny Rose from Porto, who are looking for a replacement for Alex Telles— Ed Aarons (@ed_aarons) October 5, 2020
