GETTY Manchester United have been backed to sign Tottenham defender Danny Rose

The transfer window may be closed but clubs are still working hard ahead of January and next summer so we'll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe.

United have always been linked with a move for Rose, who is now back in the Spurs squad following a lengthy injury lay-off, and another attempt to strike a deal could be made next month.

Spanish outlet El Gol Digital are reporting that Catalan giants Barcelona are looking to hamper the deal though, in the hope they can sway Rose to join Ernesto Valverde's project at the Camp Nou.

It's been suggested that if Danny Rose were to depart without a direct replacement at the club, Pochettino would pursue Celtic's Kieran Tierney when the market recommences in January.

This is mainly due to Rose being left out of key Spurs squads for recent matches, including the north London derby defeat to Arsenal.

The United boss greatly admires Carlos Soler of Valencia but it is now more likely any push for the 20-year-old will come at the end of the campaign, particularly given the Spanish side's fine campaign.

The star has been unhappy at Wembley and his remarks about the club's transfer policy have seen him get a lot of stick, though he was the best left-back in the top flight of English football last term.

Ben Davies's performances in the absence of Rose is understood to have convinced Mauricio Pochettino that he is dispensable, and the Daily Mail reports that United are now confident of completing a £50m move.

United are also believed to be open to exploit Tottenham's apparent interest in Shaw, who worked with Pochettino while at Southampton, but Spurs are not keen on a part-exchange deal involving in the seven-time England worldwide.
