The Daily Star claim United are confident of landing the England global for £45million next summer and that the player has his heart set on the move going through ahead of the World Cup in June.
Manchester United have since been linked with a move for the England global, along with their cross-city rivals Manchester City. On the personal front, Danny Rose misses his family and wants to play on the northern side of the country.
Rose has just made his comeback after suffering a knee injury.
The Spurs defender is believed to be seeking a move away from the North London club.
Valued at £45m, StarSport say United are increasingly confident of landing Rose next year.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has persisted that there are no hard feelings over Rose's backlash at the club's direction and strategy - but the Argentine has been known to hold grudges in the past.
Mourinho has waited on former Southampton star Luke Shaw to have his impact at left-back, but the Englishman's injury woes have meant Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian and Ashley Young have featured more regularly in the role.
As per the StarSport, Rose is on Chelsea's list of potential options to provide competition for Marcos Alonso at left-wing-back.
"United will face competition for Rose from neighbours Manchester City, who can be backed at 5/2 to seal Rose's signature". Now it is interesting to understand how Manchester United and Tottenham would manage the transfer as Spurs have their Champions League aspirations underway.
