Mourinho was in charge of United from May 2016 until December 2018 and was reportedly impressed by Wellens. 

Wellens, who was born in Salford, sees his current contract at United expire at the end of the season.

Mourinho’s Roma are currently in sixth place in Serie A having won ten, drawn two and lost seven of their 19 games so far this campaign. They have progressed to the last-16 stage of the Europa Conference League.
