Starsport can reveal Rose has set his heart on leaving Tottenham for Old Trafford ahead of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Mourinho is already preparing a £45m move for Rose but Chelsea will be hoping to offer something similar, which means it will be down to Rose to decide.

Tottenham Hotspur full-back Danny Rose would prefer to join Manchester United because he would like to work with Jose Mourinho over Chelsea manager Antonio Conte if he was to leave Spurs in January, according to a report on the Daily Star.

Left-back has been something of an area of concern for Mourinho since his arrival at United with a number of players occupying the position so Rose would be the ideal long-term solution.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy fined Rose and made him issue a public apology.

Tottenham are third in the Premier League standings with 14 points, five behind joint league leaders Manchester United and Manchester City.

Rose was strongly linked with a move during the summer after publicly criticising Tottenham's transfer policy while he also admitted he would consider a move in order to earn a more competitive salary and win trophies.

Would you like to see Rose at United? He is super-quick, brilliant at overlaps and on a different level to the club's lengthy roster of left-backs, who include Luke Shaw, Ashley Young, Matteo Darmian, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind.

Rose, 27, is nearly certain to be included in Gareth Southgate's World Cup squad provided he remains fit for the rest of the season.
