Jose Mourinho weighing up Luke Shaw swap deal to sign Tottenham Hotspur superstar

Jose Mourinho is considering the possibility of tempting Tottenham Hotspur to let Danny Rose move to Manchester United by letting Luke Shaw go the other way, according to reports.

The Portuguese publicly questioned Shaw’s attitude in training ahead of United’s 1-1 draw with Everton back in April, noting he was nowhere near the level of other players in his position when it came to the work rate needed to be in contention to start. But he was, however, handed a chance to prove his boss wrong against the Toffees, Sunderland and Anderlecht, and responded by producing a series of dedicated displays on the left hand side before suffering a season-ending injury against Swansea City.

Talk of Shaw being handed a second chance by Mourinho, along with a new deal, has surfaced over the summer but nothing concrete has transpired so far, with the Portuguese simultaneously registering interest in Rose as a potential future option. The England left-back publicly challenged Spurs’ ambition both on the pitch and in the transfer market over the summer, noting he would move to a club “up north” at some point in his career.

And it was reported by various outlets that the 54-year-old, in turn, would pour his resources into making a late move for Rose in the transfer window, but Spurs were understandably reluctant to sell. However, according to M.E.N‘s Charlotte Duncker, Mourinho will make another move for the left-back next summer and will use Shaw as a makeweight to push the deal through.
