Danny Rose’s spell at Tottenham was a whirlwind.
From striking the lightning bolt of a volley against Arsenal to becoming a regular England and reaching the Champions League final, he is now on loan in Newcastle.
Once summer arrives, he will only have one year left for his agreement with Spurs, but it has already been stated by a journalist that the left back will never play for the club.
Not surprisingly, in particular for the alleged disturbances of the locker room and a complaint with Jose Mourinho.
With Daniel Levy already planning their summer activity, Spurs have reportedly been interested in Marc Cucurella of Barcelona.
The defender is currently on loan to Getafe and has been claimed by COPE, through Sport Witness, that Spurs is willing to pay his € 25 million (£ 21 million) release clause.
Getafe hopes to pay € 16 million (£ 13.4 million) in Barcelona for 60% of its rights, but any agreement could include the above release clause.
This attracted not only the interest of the Spurs, but also Arsenal, Bayer Leverkusen, Borussia Monchengladbach, Sevilla and Atletico Madrid.
But if Spurs were to land it, it would certainly mean the end of Rose’s time in North London.
In recent years he has been an important member of the team, but after escaping the pecking order his future at Tottenham has never been so uncertain.
Should Spurs sign Cucurella?
A move for Cucurella could be the first step that Spurs is taking to replace him: it’s a clever advance plan and he’s definitely in a better shape than Rose.
The Spaniard was impressive in La Liga this term, claiming four assists and recording 1.4 key passes in 25 appearances, albeit from the left midfield position.
If you compare it to Rose, the differences are alarming for English. He has failed to record a lone league assist this season.
A real test for every Spurs fan: can you combine these iconic images with the right results?
In addition, Cucurella was also more influential on the defensive. The 21-year-old made 2.1 tackles per exit compared to Rose’s 1.5.
Although their transfer goal played a more advanced role, his natural position is that of a left back, playing there on 75 occasions, via Transfermarkt.
As such, he could be the man who definitively puts an end to Rose’s career in the capital.
