Danny Rose claims, Mauricio Pochettino had planned to transfer Harry Maguire to Tottenham, with the longtime Spurs manager “all over” a powerful center-half well before Manchester United put in force a record-breaking £ 80 million ($97 million) offer.
Rose told his England colleague’s Lockdown Tactics podcast: “I recall we were playing Hull at White Hart Lane and we were 3-0 winners.”
“Mauricio was the boss and Harry had the gaffer in. Tottenham was in for him, I suppose. I noticed him right after that until Poch developed a liking for him. It was a wonderful journey for him.”
“Training for England with him, you weren’t able to keep the ball off him. He is really great. He totally deserves to be captain of Manchester United.”
