Man United and Man City go head-to-head in race for Walker and Rose


The two Manchester sides are set to battle for the signatures of the Spurs pair

Man United and Man City are set to go head-to-head this month in a race to sign Kyle Walker and Danny Rose.

According to reports today, the Red Devils are considering a huge swoop to try and sign the Tottenham duo this month. They could table a bid of £60m (£30m for each player) in the hopes of bringing both players to Old Trafford.

The two of them are in great form at the moment – they’ve established themselves as two of Spurs’ key players, with both players also featuring for England due to their impressive displays.

Long-standing interest from Man City

United though will face competition to sign the pair of them from their rivals Man City.

Pep Guardiola is an admirer of both Rose and Walker and City have been keeping an eye on the two of them long before the former Barca manager even came to the club.

Guardiola is believed to have made Danny Rose his number one transfer target this month, as he looks to bring in the players he wants to help create a squad that he wants. He has only had one transfer window so far to mould the side into the team he wants and he now has this month to try and do that too.

While Danny Rose is target number one, he too would also like to bring in Kyle Walker, so that he has more options in the full-back areas.

However, Mourinho too is looking to bring in some more defensive reinforcements this month and he too has identified both Walker and Rose as players he wants. Therefore, the two sides are likely to go head-to-head to try and sign them.

Tottenham though will be reluctant to let either of them leave. They signed fresh deals earlier this season and it would take a large bid to secure the signature of one of them, let alone both of them.

However, a bid of £30m for each player (£60m in total) from either club could convince Spurs to end their new contracts early and let them make a move.
