Manchester United manager José Mourinho is reportedly eyeing a possible January move for Chelsea outcast Victor Moses.

It was reported on Tuesday via goal.com that the Nigerian star, who retired from international football in August, is considering moving out of the West London club after being unable to get quality game-time so far.

The 27-year-old is behind Eden Hazard, Willian and Pedro in the pecking order and that has limited him to just four appearances in all competitions.

According to report, former Chelsea manager José Mourinho is looking to bolster his squad in the next transfer market and has developed an interest in Moses.

At the start of this season, the Portuguese manager deployed a 3-4-3 formation which requires quality and pacey wing-backs.

However, Mourinho’s men failed woefully with the newly adopted formation as they were thrashed 3-0 by Tottenham in the fourth match of the campaign.

Though Mourinho switched back to his usual 4-4-2 tactical approach, the 55-year-old manager didn’t shut the door on the possibility of adopting the 3-4-3 formation in the future.

With Victor Moses impressive display as wing-back under Antonio Conte, Mourinho is reportedly upbeat the player is the best man for his right wing-back position.

However, this report could turn out to be a mere speculation as Mourinho has never been a Victor Moses fan.

During his time at Stamford Bridge, the former Real Madrid manager loaned out the player on two different occasions.

It remains unknown if Mourinho is ready to give Moses a chance to prove himself under his tutelage at Old Trafford.

Since joining Chelsea from Wigan Athletic in 2012, Moses has featured 127 matches in all competitions. He spent some time on loan at Stoke City and Liverpool.
