Rose at his peak was unplayable. Unfortunately that peak only lasted for about 9 months. Prior to that he was inconsistent, error-prone, defensively suspect, and didn't offer much in the way of going forward, and sadly he seems to have reverted to type. I'd love to keep him and for him to return to the beast he was in 2016 because those types of wingbacks are rare and invaluable, but I suppose if he wants out it's best for everyone involved. That said, to sell him without a proper replacement - which is what it looks like we'll be doing - is an utter joke and would really harm our season. Better have him on the bench than fecking loaned out to Shalke or whomever for pennies ffs.
