Jose Mourinho has told Manchester United to step up their pursuit of Danny Rose in the January transfer window, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils could be set to make a January move for the 27-year-old, who is said to be a long-term target of Mourinho.

Rose was linked with a move away from Tottenham back in August when he publicly questioned Spurs’ ambitions and he has only made one Premier League appearance so far this season.

The same report says that Mourinho is a long-term admirer of Rose and is keen to try and bring him to Old Trafford.

The story also says that Rose is attracting interest from some of Europe’s other top clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus.

Manchester United are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks as the January transfer window draws ever nearer.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils are looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League, when they host Newcastle United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Mourinho’s men are aiming to bounce back to winning ways after the disappointment of their 1-0 loss to Chelsea earlier this month.
