Spurs fans on Twitter have been reacting to some quotes from on-loan Newcastle United man Danny Rose, after he suggested that Spurs were considering a move for current Manchester United centre-back Harry Maguire back in 2016. 

The 29-year-old suggested on the Lockdown Tactics podcast that Mauricio Pochettino had expressed an interest in the England international back in 2016, saying: “We played [Hull] at White Hart Lane [in December 2016] and we won two or three-nil. Straight away, our gaffer was all over Harry. I think they were in for him.”

Spurs signed Eriksen in 2013 but from which team?

Maguire would join Leicester City from Hull City in 2017 and spent two years with the Foxes before joining Manchester United for £80m last summer in what was a world-record transfer fee for a defender.

Do you wish Spurs had signed Harry Maguire?





Reaction from Spurs fans to Rose’s quotes on Maguire and Pochettino’s interest can be seen in the tweets below.

Most of these Spurs fans seem frustrated that the club weren’t able to bring in Maguire.

What do we think?

Maguire has enjoyed a strong first season with Manchester United, averaging a 7.12 rating for his performances in the Premier League, so you could certainly argue Spurs made a mistake by not signing the 27-year-old while he was with the Tigers.
