The Manchester Derby continues at the transfer window as both United and City battle for the signature of Tottenham duo, Kyle Walker and Danny Rose.
These impressive full-backs just signed a new deal with their present club. This therefore means that United and City must be willing to spend to have them in their roster.
In addition, their respective contracts include a release clause. Thus, money will really do the talking on this one.
For Pep Guardiola to sign the duo, the Blues should be more than willing to spend more than £30M if they want to secure the deal.
As for the Red Devils, it is reported that the controversial, Jose Mourinho is already preparing a massive £60M fee for the two players.
Walker and Rose have sealed their reputation as one of the most dynamic duos in the English Premier League (EPL).
They are known for their efficiency as wing-backs.
With their presence, a club is guaranteed to have greater pace. Aside from that, these pitch brothers deliver a seemingly impenetrable defensive wall that will ward off scoring attempts from their opponents.
It is said that Guardiola has been keeping his tabs on these two. But is more interested in Rose.
Coincidentally, reports have it that their perceived arrival at Etihad was already planned two years ago and now that the Catalan genius is managing City, the chances to have these players wear a blue jersey, is high.
Yet, as mentioned, United is ready to bust their plans.
The Special One is unconvinced by Luke Shaw and Matteo Darmian. Playing Marcs Rojo and Daley Blind on the left-back position is also giving him some doubts. Though he sees some light with Antonio Valencia, the latter is a winger by trade and may not be able to deliver the defensive needs that his club desperately needs.
