With Mauricio Pochettino landing one of the top jobs in European football, the boss at money-laden Paris Saint-Germain, the rumour-mill has been steadily turning regarding the Argentine manager reuniting with former Tottenham stars.
Dele Alli – who helped get Pochettino to a Champions League final – has been regularly linked with the Parisian side, although as of yet nothing has been finalised.
PSG fell to a late 3-2 defeat against French minnows Lorient on Sunday, conceding twice in the last 10 minutes of the game to make redundant Neymar’s brace from the penalty spot.
Live on talkSPORT, Alex Crook has suggested that the former Lilywhites manager could plan a raid for former England left-back Danny Rose, who hasn’t even been awarded a squad number for this season, to reinforce his side.
The 30-year-old’s contract expires in the summer but is currently on the books at over £70k-a-week, according to Football Insider, who also reported in October 2020 that the club were looking to terminate that contract.
Crook claimed: “This one is up in the air, we might have been nearer the truth had he answered a call from our colleague, Jim White, on Friday, but he hung up.
“Trabzonspor have made him a really lucrative offer, a three-and-a-half-year contract. His contract is up in the summer.
“Also, it has been suggested to me that Mauricio Pochettino at Paris Saint-Germain might offer him a way out, so I think something could happen with Danny Rose between now and the 11 pm deadline.”
Sky Sports have reported that any potential Trabzonspor deal is off – which could leave the pathway to Paris open – having clearly fallen all the way off of Jose Mourinho’s radar.
With all but a guarantee of trophies and success in the French capital, a sensational deadline day raid could be one that suits all parties.
