Chelsea and Manchester United have been linked with Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose in the summer transfer window.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose is prepared to push for a move to Premier League rivals Chelsea in the summer transfer window, according to The Times.

It has been reported that if Chelsea follow up on their initial interest for Rose and make a firm bid, then the 27-year-old left-back will push for a move to the defending Premier League champions.

The report has also claimed that the England international defender would consider a move to Manchester United, but the Red Devils are not expected to make an offer for him this month.

Tottenham, though, do not want to sell Rose this summer, claims the report in The Times.

Meanwhile, former Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas has stated that the Spurs players he has spoken to are happy at the club.

"I think that is the biggest thing as a player, you see your own game improving, you are moving in the right direction, you are challenging for trophies all of a sudden,” Jenas told “That makes you stay. I think that’s what’s happened with these players.

"In saying that, one or two might leave in the next couple of seasons. I think essentially, they as a club as players, certainly the ones I have spoken to, the majority of them are happy.”
