Everton and Tottenham swap deal could make both players happier than ever

Jose Mourinho to prioritise a new full-back for Manchester United in January with Spurs' Danny Rose his top target

This news comes ahead of numerous United links to Spurs' Danny Rose, with a proposed £45m January deal looking likely to materialise.

This will not be the first time a Spurs defender has been poached from under the nose of the Argentine, with the 45-year-old losing fellow wing-back Kyle Walker to Manchester City over the summer in a £50m deal.

Prior to his horrific injury, ex United coach Louis Van Gaal had questioned Shaw's fitness and often criticised the defender for what he deemed to be below par performances, although the ex Saints prodigy did begin to rack up successive starts with a number of quality performances before the incident.

The 27 year old England worldwide stirred controversy back in the summer transfer window, when he said in an interview that he was not happy with the club's transfer policy and wanted to play elsewhere.

Rose is the main full-back target as it stands, and would cost up to £50m from Tottenham, but United sources say the Old Trafford hierarchy feel the fact he has not been in Mauricio Pochettino's team as much of late could aid them.

Manchester United's need for a proper left-back this season has been highlighted by Ashley Young - a 32-year-old winger - serving as a better option than Luke Shaw, Matteo Darmian or Daley Blind.

Spurs sold England global Kyle Walker to Manchester City in a £50m deal in the summer.

Regardless, Rose's current deal fastens him to the London-based outfit for a couple more years, although it's unlikely that he will see out the rest of his contract.

Reports in the press now claim that Mourinho is determined to get Rose on board, and although negotiations with Spurs will be hard, expects to and him in a £50million deal.
