Tottenham Hotspur’s Danny Rose has been linked with a move to Manchester City for some time now due to City's weaknesses in his the left-back position, and according to the Sunday People, the Sky Blues are becoming increasingly confident that the Englishman will sign in the summer.

On top of being enormously talented, Rose fills the homegrown quota, which is good but also a problem when it comes to his transfer fee. Reported figures currently stand at around £50 million, an astronomical price for a player in his position.

This transfer could be likely as City manager Pep Guardiola appears to admire Rose greatly. He is undoubtedly one of the greatest in his role in the Premier League, making a player of his caliber a top priority for Pep. Rose might be the first marquee signing of the summer transfer window in a move that no City supporter would argue against.

Despite the hefty price tag, Rose would make for a fantastic option on the defensive flank. A serious move should be made to obtain his signature. Sign him up, Pep!
