Danny Rose is flattered by interest from Manchester United in the summer transfer window, according to reports in England.

The Evening Standard is reporting that the Tottenham Hotspur defender is open to the idea of a change of environment despite the north London side’s progress under Mauricio Pochettino.

The same story reveals that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is a long-term admirer of the England international, who was the subject of interest from Manchester City earlier this month.

According to the article, Rose is unlikely to leave Tottenham in the summer transfer window given the 27-year-old has been sidelined with a knee problem since January.

Rose’s team-mate Kyle Walker has already completed a £52m move to cash-rich Manchester City earlier in the summer transfer window.

Manchester United have been using Italian defender Matteo Darmian at left-back throughout pre-season as Luke Shaw continues to work on a return to full fitness.

The England international moved to Manchester United in a £27m deal from Southampton in the 2014 summer transfer window.

Manchester United have signed Swedish defender Victor Lindelof, Everton striker Romelu Lukaku and Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic.

The Red Devils lost 2-1 to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Uefa Super Cup in Macedonia on Tuesday night.
