SunSport understands United are likely to seize their chance in the coming weeks to do the groundwork in putting together a big bid at the end of the season for the England star.
Elsewhere, reports suggest that the new interim boss has blocked Dean Henderson’s potential loan move away from Old Trafford this month.
Henderson had been keen on a loan transfer in the New Year having made just two appearances so far this season.
