Manchester United look increasingly likely to let Luke Shaw leave Old Trafford – and could use him as part of a deal to sign Danny Rose from Tottenham, according to reports in the British media.

The Manchester Evening News is reporting that Shaw is looking likely to move away from the club in the new year in search of regular playing time.

The same report says that Shaw could either be shipped out on loan, or used as part of the deal to land Tottenham star Rose, who is thought to be one of Jose Mourinho’s top transfer targets.

The story also suggests that Manchester United could also be keen to send Shaw out on loan for the second half of the season because it could mean that they could cash in for a bigger fee if they were to sell him next summer, as long as he proves his fitness.

Manchester United were linked with a move to sign Rose from Tottenham back in the summer but a move failed to materialise. He was also touted as a target for Chelsea.

Reports in the British media last month suggested that Rose looks more likely to sign for Manchester United than Chelsea if he is to leave Tottenham in the January transfer window.
