As pressure builds on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, there is speculation Manchester United are already looking around for future managers. His strength and awareness are his top attributes, but he has struggled when it comes to the pace of the Premier League.
United could get Rose for a cut-price as he is on the transfer list and has just one and half years remaining on his contract.
Neither Romelu Lukaku or Alexis Sanchez were replaced following their late departures during the summer, but the Telegraph report that a plan is in place to fill these gaps in the squad - and then some.
"Everybody can see that that Manchester United need a back up, Anthony Martial is injured and there isn't another really strong, proven goalscorer".

Rose would be a good signing for United as he has experience of playing in the Premier League and is a player who could add something in attack and defence for the English club.
Mandzukic, 33, is yet to feature for Maurizio Sarri's Juventus this season, only appearing on the bench in three of their seven Serie A games so far.
Manchester United certainly needs massive overhaul and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is prepared to let go of the players he thinks the team is fine without.
He added: "The winter transfer window is going to be hard and on the pitch Manchester United aren't producing as a team at the moment".
