It seems that the rumours about Barcelona being on the market for a new left-back have reached England, more particularly, North London. Reportedly, Tottenham Hotspur full-back Danny Rose has offered himself to Barcelona.
Reportedly, the Catalans studied the case but decided against the transfer because of economic and sporting reasons.
Firstly, the 29-year-old would have cost Blaugrana up to €20m, a price the Catalan club was unwilling to match. Secondly, the club believes there are better options for a Jordi Alba replacement on the market.
Danny Rose 2018-19 record:
- 36 goals
- 0 goals

The Englishman has a contract with Spurs until 2021 but both parties are said to be seeking a transfer out of the club. Transfermarkt currently values Rose at €25m.
If previous rumours are to be believed, Barca are considering up to five players for the vacant position: Junior Firpo (Real Betis), Philipp Max (Augsburg), Jerome Roussillon (Wolfsburg), David Alaba (Bayern Munich), Ricardo Rodriguez (AC Milan) and Raphael Guerreiro (Borussia Dortmund).
