Danny Rose

Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona have rejected the opportunity to sign Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose this summer.

This is according to the latest reports coming out of the media in Spain.

Danny Rose was offered to Barcelona in their quest to sign a left-back this summer thereby providing competition for first choice Jordi Alba.

Barcelona left-back Alba has not been challenged in that position since Lucas Digne left the club for Premier League side Everton last summer.

The specific report from popular Spanish media outlet SPORT revealed that Danny Rose offered himself to Barcelona but the Catalans passed up the opportunity to sign him.

Recent reports claimed that the Manchester United target is valued at £20m by Tottenham Hotspur.

Danny Rose had earlier been placed on the transfer market at Spurs and manager Mauricio Pochettino tries to shake things up.

The England international left-back was part of the Spurs team that lost their first ever Champions League final.

Danny Rose and Tottenham Hotspur were beaten 2-0 via the goals from Mohamed Salah (penalty) and Divock Origi who had come on in the second half as a replacement for Roberto Firmino.

malcom

North London giants Arsenal have been dealt a major transfer blow in their pursuit of Barcelona winger Malcom after his club slammed an outrageous transfer fee on him.

The Gunners are one of many clubs interested in the young Brazilian player but the transfer fee quoted by Barcelona will almost certainly scare them away.

According to Spanish newspaper Marca, Barcelona won’t let Malcom leave the club permanently unless they receive €60m for him which will represent a profit of €19m.

Malcom became a Barcelona player last summer after the Catalan giants snapped him up from under the noses of Italian Serie A club AS Roma.

The Italian capital club had agreed on a deal with his then club, Bordeaux before Barcelona swooped in on him.

The 21-year-old has spent one year at Barcelona but he has not been able to nail down a spot in the first XI.

Malcom has been on the fringes of the first team at Barcelona and the recent arrival of Antoine Griezmann has pushed him further down the attacking order at the Nou Camp.

Apart from Arsenal, the Brazilian player has also been linked with a move to other Premier League sides like Everton and Tottenham Hotspur.
