Danny Rose, Erik Lamela return to Tottenham Hotspur training

Starsport can reveal Rose has set his heart on leaving Tottenham for Old Trafford ahead of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Rose issued a public apology after being fined two weeks' wages but his future in north London remains in doubt, with Chelsea and United still very interested in the former Leeds youngster, who has the best part of four years left on his contract.

The same article confirms that Rose has been a long-term target for Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho and the Red Devils will launch a fresh bid in the next transfer window. Despite heavy interest from Chelsea, it appears that the 27-year-old is set to move elsewhere.

Left-back Rose has not kicked a ball in anger since January after he picked up a knee ligament problem in the 0-0 draw with Sunderland last season.

Lamela is on course for a playing return this month as he completes the rehabilitation on his injured hip.

Rose ended up staying at Tottenham after being fined and issuing a public apology but the speculation tipping the England global with a move refuses to go away.

But Manchester United have made it clear he is on their wanted list and Rose knows he can double his wages at Old Trafford.

But Mourinho knows the addition of Rose, with his lightening speed and attacking threat going forward, would be a huge asset to his side.

Danny Rose dominated the headlines this summer, despite being sidelined by an injury since January.

Rose, 27, is nearly certain to be included in Gareth Southgate's World Cup squad provided he remains fit for the rest of the season.
