Manchester United will reportedly battle it out with Manchester City for the signatures of Tottenham Hotspur full-backs Kyle Walker and Danny Rose.

Both England defenders have proved vital to Mauricio Pochettino’s side in recent seasons, attracting supposed interest from a number of leading European sides.

Jose Mourinho is determined to land both 26-year-olds in a £60m double swoop, and the Portuguese boss is already making plans for his summer transfer business that will involve significant strengthening his defensive options. Both Luke Shaw and Matteo Darmian face uncertain futures at Old Trafford after failing to impress Mourinho, which has led to the identification of Walker and Rose as potential transfer targets.

  • Both Walker and Rose only recently signed new five-year deals at White Hart Lane.
  • Manchester United and their local rivals City are preparing to engage in a £60m battle in order to try and secure Pochettino’s key men.
  • Mourinho’s side are also considering Swedish defender Victor Lindelof, as he is now set to complete his £38million move to Old Trafford.
