Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has refused to rule out a move for Tottenham and England defender, Danny Rose.

This week’s remarkable interview by Rose has meant links with Old Trafford have grown, and Mourinho has not ruled out a move for a full-back this month.

When asked whether the full-back position was an area he was happy with or looking to strengthen, Mourinho said: “You know 25 per cent means one of four.

“We got a central defender that can play in many other positions, which is important. Victor can play right-back and can play central midfield.

“We got a central midfielder, we got a striker.

“Obviously the 25 per cent would be a player for another position, playing from the sides.

“But we have players and if we cannot strengthen the team in these areas, we have people that we can trust and we go for it.”

Rose apologised on Friday for any offence caused by an interview he gave The Sun on the eve of the new season.
