Mourinho walked up to the 18-year old gifted winger and was seen showing some extra appreciation for his display of skills during the big game.
With the transfer window approaching, it looks like Mourinho has made some of his intentions clear already.

The year of 2015 was very eventful for Liverpool, as it involved two great people associated with the Reds.

To stand out as heroes endorsing this claim, a group of Celtic fans decided to mark the 50th anniversary of the historic Lisbon Lions side lifting the European Cup by cycling all the way to Lisbon’s Nacional Stadium, which was the venue that hosted the final.

Not too long ago Daniel Sturridge made himself noticed as one of the most talented striker the world had seen when he along with Luis Suarez almost pushed Liverpool towards the title.
But a lot has changed since then. After his long-term injury woes drastically reduced the club’s dependence on him.
Sturridge ended up making just 11 appearances for Liverpool this season, which has in turn flamed the rumors of his exit from the club come the 2017/18 season.
While he still has two years left on his contract, the player made public his intention to remain at the club, and Liverpool fans, undoubtedly, want the same, albeit minus the injuries.
After playing in Liverpool’s last game of the season against Middlesbrough, fans at Anfield’s iconic Kop End appreciated the player and chanted his name during the end of the season lap of honour.
Whether he leaves or goes, this heart-warming moment with the fans shows despite the frustration with his fitness, the striker is one of the best players to have donned the Red shirt–
In the midst of an emotionally-charged game against Manchester United earlier this month, Tottenham supporters were visibly overwhelmed with the knowledge that it would be their last ever visit to the White Hart Lane.
But one of them had other concerns. A fan was seen holding up a message addressed to Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen, demanding that they get this kits off.
Perhaps goals from either of the two players could have resulted in shirts coming off, but Wanyama and Kane stole the show to cancel out Rooney’s lone strike and seal the victory.

An era of sorts came to an end when Italian businessman Andrea Radrizzani completed the takeover of ownership of Leeds United from Massimo Cellino earlier today.
Radrizzani, who had been the owner of 50 percent stake in the club since January this year, bought the remaining half from Cellino and became the chairman of Leeds United with immediate effect.
“If you can survive working with me, you can survive anything!” was the message to fans by Cellino, whose turbulent three-year reign at the club was marred by events like an FA ban for breaching agent regulations, tax-related issues, and his incessant habit of firing managers which saw 7 changes during his tenure.
Leeds United fans took to social media and despite all the shortcomings, acknowledged the fact that Massimo is leaving the club in a much better shape than he found it.
The fans responded to their ex-chairman with thankful messages expressing gratitude, some of which can be read below –
At a young age of 23, Tottenham’s Harry Kane has emerged as arguably one of the best strikers in all of Europe in recent times.
The England international finished the season with a stunning hat-trick against Hull City, his fourth of the season. With 29 goals to his name, Kane went on to win the Golden Boot on the last day of the season.
Prior to his brilliant achievement, there was a long line of critics who had simply brushed him aside by calling him a “one season wonder.”
But Kane had an answer for all of them in the form of a message on Instagram, which holds even more weight when you find Chelsea legend John Terry’s seal of approval affixed on it.
