Mourinho has regularly hinted that he is unhappy with the defensive options at his disposal so far this season, having failed in his attempts to bring a new centre-back to the club during the summer.
Helsingborg defender Granqvist has emerged as a surprise transfer target for the Red Devils, and the 33-year-old revealed that he would be interested in moving to Old Trafford should United make their interest concrete.
“There is indeed interest. I am honoured that I am linked with such a big club,” Granqvist told Expressen.
“If there is a concrete offer in January, then both the club and I will accept that, but that is currently not the case.”
Granqvist, who has previous experience of the Premier League following a short stint at Wigan Athletic earlier in his career, would be expected to join United on loan until the end of the season.
