A source said: “It is not secret that Jose likes Rose. He is looking to make a move for him in January when the window opens.

“He could prove difficult to get though as Tottenham do not like dealing with United. It all depends on money at the end of the day.”

Reports have also suggested a possible swap deal could be on the cards involving Rose and United full-back Luke Shaw.

The 22-year-old has struggled to break into Mourinho’s team, and could quit Old Trafford when the window opens.
