Guardiola Confident of Signing Spurs Star With Luke Shaw Set to Replace Him in North London

As reported by the ​Mirror, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is confident of securing the signature of current Spurs left back Danny Rose this summer – with suggestions that Manchester United’s Luke Shaw will head over to north London as Rose’s replacement.

​There’s little doubt that Guardiola needs to sort out his defence; Gael Clichy, Bacary Sagna and permanently injured skipper Vincent Kompany all look to be on their way out of the club.

As for Rose, he would likely cost a cool £50m and appears to be a key component of Pep’s rebuilding plans; while Spurs are under no pressure to sell, they have their own rebuilding plans to content with: 

The updated version of White Hart Lane is now expected to top £750m, so were City to come in with a mammoth offer for Rose, it would likely be extremely difficult to turn down.

The potential departure of Rose would obviously have to be off-set with a replacement, and it’s rumoured that Manchester United’s underused left back Luke Shaw could well be said replacement.

Either way, Shaw’s days under Jose Mourinho at United look to be numbered; while he has started some games, they have tended to be in the cup competitions and it’s rumoured his name has already been banded about to several agents.

At only 21, Shaw has plenty of time to improve and one feels a prolonged run of games will see him reignite his career; whether that ends up being at Tottenham remains to be seen.
