It might be a prime example that the so-called silly season is upon us, but Tottenham Hotspur fans are excited nonetheless - and rightly so.
But it seems like Barcelona are willing to throw a spanner in the works and suffice to say that fans of the North London club are more than open to the idea of swapping Rose for the 28-year-old - even if it's a paella in the sky.

I would bite their hands off for this but to be honest, can't see it happening.— Jwalkerthfc (@jwalkerthfc) December 6, 2017
I’d rather see this move than to Stregthen United in all honesty— Jordan Bolds (@Jordan_Boldsyy) December 6, 2017

Take that deal! Send him to a non-domestic rival.— LOLno (@ZeroFilterGuy) December 5, 2017
Note: I WANT to keep Rose but that deal is worth it.
Tottenham fans are right. Taking Alba in a straight swap deal is probably the better move than selling to United for £50 million.
Presumably Spurs and the Red Devils will look to mount a much more serious Premier League title challenge next season and having a player of Rose's talent would certainly give Jose Mourinho and co an edge.
