United want a partner for Nemanja Matic in midfielder and someone capable of pushing Paul Pogba, Juan Mata and others for a starting place.
Pogba’s stock at United has taken a hit in recent weeks with Mourinho dropping the Frenchman for several crucial games including the Champions League first leg against Sevilla.
Wanyama has played in the Premier League since 2013, making over 130 appearances and also has experience in Europe. Manchester United 2017/18 Fixtures
