Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is confident he will be able to sign Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose in the summer, according to The Mirror.

It is understood that the Spaniard is willing to spend Ł50 million for the English full-back.


Current City defenders Gael Clichy, Bacary Sagna and Vincent Kompany are all due to move away from the Etihad Stadium as Guardiola continues to revamp his squad.

The former Bayern Munich boss has previously praised Spurs duo Rose and Kyle Walker as the best full-backs in the Premier League.

The 26-year-old recently signed a four-and-a-half-year contract with the North London side but it is believed that The Sky Blues are prepared to offer a deal worth double the money.

Spurs are likely to consider the mammoth offer for the additional funds as the cost of their new stadium is expected to spiral to over Ł750 million.

Furthermore, it is rumoured that Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw, who has fallen out of favour at Old Trafford, is set up to be a replacement if Rose were to make the move.
