'Time is running out and I do want to win trophies.
Rose was interviewed by BBC Sport a few months ago about his desire to win silverware - he stated that he believed some Spurs players would leave the club and spoke about the North London outfit's wage structure.
The Doncaster-born defender's comments will not have gone unnoticed in Manchester.
"If I get to levels I reached last season - and this goes out to everybody - I will make sure I get what I am worth".
All those traits would be useful for United. He offers speed, trickery and directness on the counter-attack, attributes United lack in defence. "We'll see. We are so close to making it happen". They have also signed a midfielder, but one is not enough to cover the multiple departures. Maybe three or four players, in offensive and defensive positions.
"Wanting out isn't an issue". It sounds like the perfect profile for the left wingback slot at Stamford Bridge. At present, there is an uneasy balance that Rose has unhelpfully nudged.
"I will say this too", Rose said.
"I know my worth and I will make sure I get what I am worth", he explained.
"I mean signings like that are what we need - that's just my opinion". Rose is the only man who can dictate terms here.
Pochettino suggested that some new arrivals at the club are imminent.
Leeds have bolstered their injury-plagued defence with the loan signing of Manchester United defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson.
In truth, it doesn't matter too much. The latter may well be coming back to haunt them in the near future. "I definitely feel we need to bolster the squad". "I'll never forget some of things they said about me".
Pochettino is set to discuss the Rose situation at his news conference on Friday morning ahead of their Premier League opener at Newcastle on Sunday.
Rose is considered the best left back in England, and one of the best in the Premier League.
The amount of contradictions in his statement are staggering!
Chelsea's first test of squad depth will be this Saturday.
Following his explosive interview in The Sun on Thursday, Danny Rose remains a hot topic on the back of English papers.

It does, however, contradict his quotes in The Sun's interview.
Manchester United face competition from Inter Milan for Tottenham left-back Danny Rose. He would certainly be an upgrade over Darmian, and it would be easy to see him as the starting LB as soon as he joins the club.
