Jose Mourinho admits he thought Danny Rose would move on when he joined Newcastle United in January.
Jose Mourinho said “Danny is not part of our squad. Danny wanted very, very much to leave in the January window last season. Why? Because he wanted to play and play and play. Then he went to Newcastle and I immediately had the feeling of being a player of his dimension that, thinking about Euros, I thought our future would be Davies and Sessegnon. Then we had the possibility to get Reguilon and I thought that would be a good opportunity for Ryan to get game time and develop. With Danny, the players and agents make the market. If the agent didn’t find a solution for Danny to move then it’s a question you have to ask him.”
Steve Bruce had been keen to make Rose’s loan signing a permanent deal but his valuation, wage demands and Newcastle’s post-pandemic budget squeeze combined to make the deal impossible. United moved to sign Jamal Lewis from Norwich instead while Rose failed to find himself a club, with a move to Genoa falling through. The left-back is now left without a squad number for the next part of the season after Spurs left him out of their 25-man group.
