Mourinho is willing to look at ditching some of his squad's biggest names — disgruntled that by the time United host Stoke tomorrow they could be 18 points behind leaders Manchester City.
Mourinho said: “My approach to players is that every player has a price. It doesn't matter who he is. It doesn't matter the level.
“It doesn't matter the prestige, or the status.
“I think every player has a price.
“And I am not the kind of blind manager.
“Blind in the sense that this player is untouchable, this can never be sold.
“So when the transfer window is open it's also open for any club that is interested in our players.
“Then it's up to us to make the decision yes or no. It's up to us to make the right price."
