Man United have scouted Benfica starlet Andrija Zivkovic on a number of occasions this term, according to O Jogo reports.
Portuguese newspaper claims that Mourinho is a huge admirer of Serbian attacker and wants him to join Man Utd next season.
The 21-year-old winger who can also operate in the attacking midfield role has begun this season strong scoring in both Europe and Liga NOS games.
The Red Devils scouts have attended every Benfica game this season and Zivkovic has earned good reports from the scouts, suggest O Jogo.
Mourinho is scouting Benfica even more extensively than usual as they are both in the same group of UEFA Champions League.
The Serbian starlet has been named MOTM for Benfica in midweek, starting in central midfield against Russian giants CSKA Moscow in a surprise 2-1 defeat, while the Red Devils won their game against Basel.
Serbian attacker has played full consecutive games, having played only 15 times last season, with five of those, have been made as a substitute.
The Red Devils fans will get the chance to see Zivkovic’s when Benfica travell at Old Trafford in October.
