‘Pochettino was all over Maguire’ – Spurs wanted Man Utd’s £80m defender, says Rose

The former Tottenham boss was eager to do a deal for the England international centre-half after seeing him star in the Premier League for Hull City

Mauricio Pochettino had hoped to take Harry Maguire to Tottenham, says Danny Rose, with the former Spurs boss having been “all over” a commanding centre-half long before Manchester United put a record-breaking £80 million ($97m) deal in place.

The England international became the most expensive defender in world football when making a switch to Old Trafford in the summer of 2019.

That move was made from Leicester, with the Foxes having acquired the 27-year-old from Hull City two years earlier.
