Paper round-up: Rose linked with Manchester clubs and Atletico apparently eyeing Pochettino

Tottenham’s Danny Rose is wanted by Manchester City and Manchester United, the Sunday People say.

It is claimed that City boss Pep Guardiola has told his scouts to watch Rose, 26, in recent weeks and has been impressed with their reports.

The People claim City could face a battle with rivals United, whose manager Jose Mourinho also apparently wants the England left-back.

Rose signed a new five-year contract at Spurs in September, but City supposedly aren’t deterred.

The People also say Tottenham are considering taking Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic on loan in January with a view to a £12.5m deal in the summer.

Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid want Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino to replace Diego Simeone, the Sunday Mirror claim.

The Sunday Mirror recently claimed Real Madrid see Pochettino has a potential future boss.

The same newspaper now say the Argentinean is being lined up by Atletico, with Simeone tipped to move on in the summer.

Simeone has been linked with a number of clubs, including his former side Inter Milan.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is said to be aware of interest in Pochettino and determined to do all he can to keep him at White Hart Lane.
