Manchester United manager David Moyes has reiterated Wayne Rooney is not for sale, amid a report from the Daily Mirror that the club have no intention of buckling under Chelsea's interest.
However, Moyes has reiterated his stance regarding the England international's future, stating: "The club's position has not changed."
But the Independent reports the Red Devils will seek clear-the-air talks with Rooney and his agent Paul Stretford in order to clarify the player's desire.
Rooney's head could be turned by Mourinho's Chelsea, with the Evening Standard alleging they are prepared to make him their "highest-paid player".
On Thursday, Mourinho reaffirmed his belief that Rooney needs to be playing regular first-team football ahead of the 2014 World Cup.
