Jose Mourinho to battle Chelsea for Tottenham star Danny Rose in January

Starsport can reveal Rose has set his heart on leaving Tottenham for Old Trafford ahead of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Tottenham Hotspur have been handed a significant boost ahead of the restart of the Premier League and Champions League after Danny Rose and Erik Lamela both returned to first-team training.

Rose suffered a knee injury in January and has endured a frustrating spell on the sidelines with multiple setbacks in that time, but he finally appears to be nearing a comeback.

RAY WILKINS has named his combined Liverpool and Manchester United XI.

The England worldwide caused a storm earlier in the summer when criticising the club's transfer policy and wage structure, but immediately received the backing of Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino who insisted the player remained in his plans.

It is said that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy "will drive a hard bargain and refuse to let Rose go on the cheap", but United have the cash to make Spurs an offer too lucrative to reject.

Rose penned his latest deal with the north London club back in September 2016 and a departure from Spurs seemed unlikely as he excelled in the first half of last season.

Would you like to see Rose at United? Already this season four different players have operated in the role-Ashley Young, Matteo Darmian, Daley Blind and Luke Shaw.

Rose, 27, is nearly certain to be included in Gareth Southgate's World Cup squad provided he remains fit for the rest of the season.
