Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho wants to add Everton right-back Seamus Coleman to his squad in January, according to The Mirror.

The Republic of Ireland defender has been linked with a move to Old Trafford consistently in the past but a Goodison Park exit has not eventuated.

Mourinho has been selecting Antonio Valencia at right-back this season but there is a collective feeling that it is a position that could be improved with clever recruitment.

Matteo Darmian is out of favour with the Portuguese boss also and looks set for a possible loan switch back to Serie A in the new year.

Coleman has been one of the most consistent right-backs in the Premier League over a number of seasons and is constantly a threat on the front foot.

Ronald Koeman will surely resist any attempts from United to land the Irishman mid-season, with a £16 million offer coming from the Red Devils according to the report.
